Upon Andrew Tate’s arrest, the Romanian police officially seized 11 of his cars.
Andrew and his brother Tristan were arrested on December 29 on charges of human trafficking and exploiting women to produce pornographic films.
The cars were confiscated to cover the cost of the investigation into Tate and would also be used for any subsequent payments to the two brothers’ alleged victims. Among the luxury cars are Rolls-Royce Wraith from the Black Badge series and an Aston Martin Vanquish S Ultimate.
Prosecutors are investigating whether the seized cars were purchased with money obtained from human trafficking.
Andrew and Tristan Tate’s lawyers contested the confiscation of the luxury cars found in the brothers’ Pipera villa in Bucharest and on the properties they own in Romania. In total, 11 cars and 10 buildings in Ilfov, Bucharest, Valea Prahovei, and other counties, owned by the Tate brothers, were seized.
Prosecutors allege that the brothers trafficked six women whom they forced to do pornographic films for Tate’s online business. At least one of them was also allegedly raped.
Two other women were arrested along with the two brothers: Andrew’s girlfriend, Georgiana Naghel, and Luana Radu, a former police officer who was Andrew Tate’s right hand.
