Controversial figure Andrew Tate has been released from house arrest in Romania as the terms of his confinement came to an end together with his brother Tristan and two women associated with them.
According to a court statement, the Tate brothers and female accomplices were under judicial control for 60 days from August 4 to October 2.
Tate publicly mocked skateboarders and has been at the center of a heated debate surrounding freedom of expression and the consequences of one's actions.
The skateboarding community had voiced strong objections to Tate's derogatory remarks, calling him a poser when he said that he would win any skateboarding contest because he is the Top G.
A video surfaced online about Andrew and Tristan clowning skaters for only knowing how to skateboard and not getting any women.
They advised them to become financially free, make money and focus on wealth instead of wasting time doing a kickflip, jerking off, and playing video games.
The Tate brothers were arrested in the Romanian capital of Bucharest in December 2022 before they were detained in police custody until March.
They were accused of human trafficking, stealing Tiktok money from their girls. Prosecutors said the Tate brothers recruited their victims by seducing them and falsely claiming to want a relationship or marriage.
The court's decision says all four defendants will be subjected to geographical restrictions limiting them to the territories of Bucharest municipality and the nearby Ilfov county unless they get prior approval from a judge.
In addition, if the defendants violate the terms of their judicial obligations, the court reading states they will return to house arrest or preventive arrest.
