The online influencer Andrew Tate and his brother were released from house arrest in Romania on Friday but must remain in the country while they await trial on charges of human trafficking, after an order from a court in Bucharest.
The Bucharest Court of Appeals said in a written statement that Mr. Tate and his brother, Tristan Tate, must stay in Romania under probation for 60 days while awaiting trial. The Tate brothers and two Romanian women were indicted in Romania in June on charges of engaging in human trafficking across Romania, Britain and the United States and of forming an organized criminal group in 2021.
Andrew Tate, a former kickboxer, is also facing accusations of rape.
Mr. Tate on Friday tweeted that the indictment was “based on nothing.” “I have been released from house arrest but must remain within Romania,” he wrote.
