Ever since the Romanian authority arrested Andrew and his brother Tristan last year, they have remained under custody. The court has kept them imprisoned on the grounds that they might “intimidate” the witnesses. Allegedly, despite no concrete proof, the officials rejected their 5th straight appeal for their early release in mid-March.
In one of the most highly-watched cases of this year, ‘Top G‘s legal team was accused of sending a notice to one of the victims. The letter apparently threatens to sue her and her family for $300 million for defamation unless she retracts her claims. However, for Tate’s fans, it appears they might finally be able to see some positive developments.
Tina Glandian, who represents the Tate brothers alongside the Romania legal defense team, has stepped in. She sent out a last-minute statement claiming that her legal firm has never sent the aforementioned “threatening letter.” Tina Glandian is a Partner at Geragos & Geragos, California litigation firm.
In an exclusive statement received by Spynews, Glandian, among other things, states, “My company had no involvement in sending the cease and desist letter. Nor was the legal team of Romania involved in the representation of the Tate brothers in the criminal investigation. The cease and desist letter was sent by US civil attorneys because it relates to a defamation lawsuit that will take place here in the United States.“
Tina also mentioned that as US citizens, both Andrew and Tristan can exercise their legal rights, which may lead to their release from the Romanian prison. She also expressed gratitude to the US Embassy for taking an interest in the case. She reassured that one of the Embassy’s top priorities is to provide assistance to US citizens detained abroad.
Andrew Tate is to remain in custody till the end of April
The Romanian court has ruled that the brothers will stay imprisoned for a fourth consecutive month. Even though, allegedly, the prosecutors haven’t provided any concrete evidence, it has been almost 90 days since they have remained in prison. Andrew and Tristan have maintained their denial of any wrongdoing since the case’s inception.
Andrew’s lawyers have claimed he will be kept under custody until the end of April. As fans expected, the prosecutors were reportedly unable to bring any evidence in the Wednesday hearing. However, Tate’s lawyers didn’t fail to mention that their client’s infamy is one of the contributing factors in keeping them confined.
This most recent hearing marked the first time that the court asked the Tates to directly respond to their prosecutors. After a back-and-forth exchange between the duo and the prosecutors, the judge concluded that the two men will be kept in custody until the end of April. But with Tate’s legal team insisting there is not enough evidence and the recent theory of Tate’s American rights, the case is set to enter a crucial stage.
