Assets could be used to compensate victims

Tate, an American-British dual citizen, was arrested on December 29 in Bucharest along with his brother Tristan Tate and two Romanian women.

They have been and are charged with human trafficking, rape and belonging to an organized crime group imprisoned for at least 30 days.

Romania’s Directorate of Investigation into Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) said it had identified six victims in the human trafficking case who were subjected to “acts of physical violence and psychological coercion” and sexually exploited by members of the alleged criminal group.

These women were lured by feigned love but were subsequently intimidated and forced to appear in pornography, the agency said.

A spokesman for DIICOT said if prosecutors can prove Tate made money from these illegal activities, such as human trafficking, the seized cars and other assets could be used to help pay for the investigation and compensate victims.

Tate and the other defendants have denied the allegations

After his vehicles were towed away on Saturday, a post appeared on Tate’s Twitter account that read: “Anyone who thinks I’m a human trafficker really is an idiot.”

“Anyone smart enough to understand that the American system is unfair would be overwhelmed by the injustice of the Romanian system,” the statement continued.
