Andrew Tate, a polarising influencer who never fails to be brimming with controversy, has had some of his Bitcoin investments confiscated by Romanian authorities while languishing in a jail cell.

Andrew Tate has been locked up in a Bucharest jail cell along with his brother Tristan since the 29th of December last year, after his compound in Romania was raided. While no charges have been filed against him, Romanian officials have said he is being held on suspicion of human trafficking.

Tina Glandian, a US lawyer representing the pair, said that their “detention without charge for more than 30 days was a violation of international human rights law.”

Mateea Petrescu, who does public relations for Andrew and Tristan Tate, said Romanian police had seized hardware wallets from their compound.

According to Petrescu, Andrew’s cold wallet had five Bitcoin (US$111,340) and Tristan had 16 Bitcoin on his cold wallet (US$467,625).

Not only have the Tate brothers had their Bitcoin taken, but authorities have also seized luxury cars, watches, and property.
