Andrew Tate faces being locked in Romanian cell for 23 hours a


Andrew Tate faces spending the next 30 days inside a detention centre with grim conditions, according to a Council of Europe report on Romanian prisons. The controversial influencer was arrested on Thursday in Romania on suspicion of human trafficking, rape, and forming an organised crime group. Mr Tate, who boasted about the number of gas-guzzling cars he owns this week, will spend most of his time in a decrepit cell alongside his brother Tristan, 34.

A 2022 report on the state of the Romanian prison system from the Council of Europe’s Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment shows the brutal conditions that await Mr Tate.

During his time at the Bucharest Police Detention Centre, the 36-year-old former kickboxer will likely be held in a “shabby, cramped cell measuring 15 square metres”, according to the report. 

There will be a hole in the ground for a toilet, which also doubles up as a shower for inmates.

The detention centre, first built in the 1960s during Romania’s brutal communist era, houses those accused of the most serious crimes committed in Bucharest.

In the past, it has also held high-profile politicians accused of corruption.

Although the centre was renovated in 2015, Mr Tate will still have to contend with only being allowed one hour a day for “outdoor recreation”.

The Council of Europe’s report found that most prisoners remained locked in their cells for 23 hours a day in squalor.

The report on the squalor conditions read: “Material conditions in all the prisons visited were generally poor, with cells dilapidated, lacking equipment (storage space, tables and chairs), and mattresses and bedding worn out and infested with bed bugs and cockroaches.

“Many complaints were received about the very limited access to hot water as well as in respect of the insufficient in-cell heating in winter.

“Moreover, sanitary facilities were often in a poor state of repair, and detained persons were not provided with appropriate quantities of detergent and hygiene products.”

As far as access to fresh air goes, Mr Tate will have to spend his outside hour “in yards which were usually small, surrounded by walls and enclosed by one or more layers of low-level metal grilles, and were partially covered by a plexiglass roof panel.”

He was ordered to spend the next 30 days in the centre after a judge at Bucharest Court House yesterday rejected his lawyer’s appeal to have him released from jail while investigations continued.

Alongside his brother, two women were also arrested in the raid, Georgiana Naghel and Luana Radu.

The Tates’ lawyer, Eugen Vidineac, said they would appeal against the detention.

He also criticised that the centre’s conditions, saying: “It’s quite cold in the detention centre as the heating system is very old.

“But Andrew is confident that it’s just a matter of time before they will be released.”

Mr Vidineac added that his clients reject all the allegations.

Mr Tate posted a cryptic tweet after being detained, which read: “The Matrix sent their agents.”
