Romanian authorities seize luxury cars belonging to Andrew Tate

Romanian authorities seized luxury cars from the compound of accused rapist and sex trafficker Andrew Tate on Saturday.

A Rolls-Royce, BMW and Mercedes-Benz along with other cars were taken from the property on the outskirts of the capital, Bucharest reported, Reuters reported.

Romanian police raided seven homes on Thursday as part of their investigation into Tate, a social media influencer and self-declared misogynist. The raid came a day after Tate lost a bid to recover previously seized assets, including his cars.

US-born Tate, 36, remains in custody following his December 29 arrest and faces a slew of serious sex crime charges. He was arrested along with his brother and two Romanian women. They have denied wrongdoing.

Prosecutors told Reuters earlier this week that they seized 15 luxury vehicles and more than 10 properties and homes belonging to the suspects to prevent the assets from being sold or hidden.

In early January, authorities seized 11 luxury cars owned by Tate and his brother, including a $2.9 million Bugatti Chiron that Tate used to mock Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg.

Officials have said they could use the seized assets to “cover the costs of the investigation and damages to the victims” if prosecutors can prove the Tates made money from human trafficking.
