Former kickboxing world champion and controversial social media influencer, Andrew Tate, who was accused of human trafficking, has been released from the Romanian jail on Friday after winning his fourth appeal. While the 36-year-old is placed under a house arrest, he shared first video on social media following his release from the prison.
Andrew Tate along with his brother Tristan Tate were imprisoned in the Romanian jail since December last year on the suspicion of organised crime and human trafficking, however, they were released due to the lack of evidence.
On Friday night, Tate shared a video on his Twitter handle, where he can be seen walking in exertion while smoking a cigar as he mentioned "24 hour lockdown" since last year caused him "vivd pain".
He wrote, "Since last year ive been in 24 hour lockdown. No yard time. Pacing a 3metre cell with zero electronics or outside contact. Absolute clarity of mind. Real thoughts. Real plans. Vivid pain. One hour home and I cant stand my phone. Some habits die hard. We must defeat Shaytan."
The Romania’s anti-organised crime agency, DIICOT's spokesperson, Ramona Bolla said, Andrew, Tristan and two Romanian women, Naghel Georgiana Manuela and Radu Alexandra Luana were detained in Bucharest last year, but denied all the accusation on Friday and will remain under house arrest until 29 April.
