Attorney: Andrew Tate is not a flight risk to Dubai

According to his attorney, Andrew Tate will not attempt to elude the Romanian legal system by leaving the country while contesting the decision to further extend his detention.

If released, Mr. Tate intends to visit Dubai—but only for medical tests, according to his attorney, who spoke to the BBC.

According to reports in Romania that were allegedly based on Mr. Tate's phone-tapped conversations, he posed a flight risk.

In December, Romanian authorities detained Mr. Tate and his brother Tristan.

They are being held in pre-charge detention on charges of rape, human trafficking, and forming an organized crime group.

Any wrongdoing has been denied by both men.

The Tate brothers appeared in court in Bucharest on Monday to contest the most recent detention order against them.

It is believed that Romanian reports detailing phone calls the brothers allegedly made while in custody were used as evidence by prosecutors to justify extending their detention.

Up until now, their detention had been maintained through February 27; it has now been extended for an additional 30 days.

One of the Tates' lawyers, Eugen Vidineac, told the BBC that while the brothers' phone calls while in custody were being recorded, nothing they had discussed was unlawful after filing an appeal against that continued detention.

No flight risk exists, he declared.

He continued, "It was a conversation between Andrew and his secretary, saying that if the judges released him under these terms, he would travel to Dubai [for medical testing].".

According to him, there was no attempt to elude Romanian justice. Their appeal must be decided by Monday.

In 2016, Mr. Tate, a former kickboxer, was fired from the British reality television program Big Brother after a video surfaced that appeared to show him assaulting a woman.

After being banned from Twitter for saying that women should "bear responsibility" for being sexually assaulted, he went on to become well-known online. He was then given his position back.

Despite restrictions on social media, he became well-liked, especially among young men, by endorsing what he portrayed as an excessively luxurious and masculine lifestyle.
