The case file summary, which is made up of hundreds of pages of evidence and transcripts, contains a claim that one lady had eye and breast injuries as a result of alleged sexual assault.
Additionally, Mr. Tate’s brother Tristan appears to say that he will “slave these bitches” in what the prosecution claims are transcripts of audio messages.
Both individuals are currently being tried in Romania for participating in organized crime with two other defendants and engaging in human trafficking.
In addition, Andrew Tate is accused of rape.
They refute each and every accusation. It’s possible that some of the messages were initially composed or recorded in English before being translated into Romanian by prosecutors and then back into English by the BBC.
Because the original evidence is not contained in the summary document, the BBC is unable to confirm if the communications have been accurately transcribed or whether the defendants actually sent them as stated.
Insight into the pre-trial prosecution case against Andrew Tate, whose divisive views and online influence have prompted warnings from schools, police, and rights groups, is provided by the 300 pages of reported testimony and material reviewed by the BBC.
A text conversation that has been copied and pasted into the summary purports to show Mr. Tate claiming leadership of the pornographic content industry, which the prosecution claims constituted a human trafficking operation.
The Tate brothers and two Romanian women were formally accused of human trafficking and organizing a gang in June by Romania’s Organized Crime Unit.
Andrew Tate, who was present in court during the indictment, stated that they were “not the first affluent men to be unfairly attacked” and expressed excitement for the prospect of being exonerated.
In a statement released earlier this summer, Romanian prosecutors claimed that the Tate brothers had lured their alleged victims into their organization by deceiving them about their romantic intentions. The women were then taken to a home outside of Bucharest, where they were sexually exploited by the group and coerced into creating pornographic material through physical and psychological abuse, the prosecutors said.
Some of the evidence referred to in the case file obtained by the BBC may be deemed inadmissible when the Tates’ attorneys contest the prosecution’s testimony at a pre-trial hearing later this month.
Even if the evidence is accepted into evidence, the defendants may object to it in court.
The defendants might deny making these claims and argue against their veracity or context. They may also question if they adhere to the standards set by the law for any crimes committed against them.
The evidence from many women who allegedly resided in a building next to the Tates’ home on the outskirts of Bucharest is included in the file that the BBC has access to. The women claim that money earned from their online pornography was managed by
Slave these skanks,
Georgiana Naghel, one of the two Romanian co-defendants of the Tates, according to the prosecution, had access to the money earned on the OnlyFans website.
Prosecutors claim that she would make monthly payments to the OnlyFans video stars’ wives while concealing their total earnings.
They assert that the defendants withheld at least 50% of the revenue from content made specifically for the TikTok platform.
Witnesses allege that they were threatened with verbal and physical violence in order to deliver certain content on time and according to a rigid timetable.
Threats to “break your teeth” or “end up in the morgue” are mentioned in the case file and were allegedly made by Ms. Naghel in transcribed text conversations.
She is also accused of physically assaulting one victim, a claim she vigorously contests.
According to reports, one of the women was left with debts totaling roughly €4,000 (£3,412) as a result.
The two female defendants angrily denied the accusations, which were unsupported by any evidence, according to their attorney, who added that they were waiting for the court to determine their innocence.
Additionally, there are what are allegedly transcriptions of audio messages from 2020 in the prosecutors’ dossier, in which Tristan Tate appears to imply that he doesn’t want the ladies who use websites like PornHub and OnlyFans to have access to their accounts:
“I don’t want them to have the passwords, or anything else,” the speaker said.
Additionally, “I don’t want to tell them that they have OnlyFans; I want to use that money for you and I, screw them.”
This is what else is in the transcript:
“My first goal is to enslave these bitches […] They will have to put in even more nonstop hours of work. I treat these women like my servants. […] slavish labor. 10 to 12 hours minimum every day.
The charges are the product of jealousy, according to the Tate brothers and several of the women who work for them, who previously told authorities.
And two of the women—whom authorities have designated as victims—say they did not split their income with anyone. Both ladies have made public mention of their close friendships with and support for the males.
Additionally, the prosecution will work to paint a picture of oppressive behavior and severe limitations, mostly through the evidence of witnesses and texts they allege were exchanged between the various parties.
This allegedly includes a requirement that freshly arrived ladies be accompanied by a Tates family member or close friend when leaving the house.
The two female defendants, Ms. Naghel and Luana Radu, are accused of supervising the women after recruitment.
The prosecution draws attention to allegedly exchanged texts between Tristan Tate and Ms. Naghel on the operation of the company.
Significantly, the papers obtained by the BBC include a transcript of a text message that one claimed victim allegedly sent to Andrew Tate last year, allegedly asking if he is “the one running the girl business/OnlyFans and TikTok.”
I think Andrew says, “Tristan and G are.”
But I am leading them.
We requested the Tates to address these allegations. In a statement, a spokesman claimed they adamantly refuted the severe accusations made against them. She charged the BBC of being biased and said there was “substantial evidence pointing to their innocence” without providing any further information or addressing the particular accusations made.
“I can’t function without alcohol”
Andrew Tate appears to blend language of love and marriage with what appear to be commands, threats, references to rape, or insults like “bitch” or “whore” in other transcribed conversations that the prosecution claims took place between this putative victim and Mr. Tate over a number of weeks.
The accused victim appears to implore him not to use those expressions, according to the file.
According to the file, she informs Andrew Tate, “I will not have sex with girls,” in response to a request for group sex. I won’t take this action. Then I have to drink for this, baby. If I don’t drink, I can’t do it.
Don’t be boring, I want to see that you surrender to me, Mr. Tate allegedly retorted. Whore, stop talking; you’ll follow my instructions.
There have been other allegations of mistreatment as well. Additionally, the case file summary includes in-depth witness testimonies of Mr. Tate’s alleged abuse of women.
One claimed victim of rape claims that he once ordered her to remove her clothes while still having her shoes on, after which he “slapped her across the face.”
She claims that because Mr. Tate would hold her head during sex, tell her he didn’t want to hear bad things from her, and threaten to get her pregnant and put her in a house, she was unable to say no to him.
She was “crying and scared because she thought [Andrew Tate] was capable of anything,” the prosecution claims about the accused victim.
According to the file, the two people were by themselves in the room at the time, but the prosecution is attempting to contextualize this evidence in light of the defendant’s allegedly more extensive history and behavior.
Another lady claimed to investigators that Andrew Tate used his sexual violence as a means of “venting frustration” when she disobeyed him.
Expert in human trafficking cases Silvia Tabusca told the BBC that the prosecution would need to demonstrate that the defendants misled their putative victims about the purpose of the relationship in order to establish their case. She claimed that even if the women gave their own consent, trafficking might still occur.
Andrew Tate vehemently denied using or controlling any women in an earlier interview with the BBC, claiming that he had “never hurt anyone” and that the accusations against him were “completely and utterly fabricated.”
Additionally, he has repeatedly stated that the media and other parties take some of his words out of context and combine them in a way that doesn’t accurately reflect reality.
Rare vehicles, jewelry, and real estate
The file also makes reference to monetary transactions, including £4 million that Andrew Tate is said to have put into an online bank account under the headline “Rev Only Fans.” Details about the source of that income are unknown to the BBC.
Prosecutors claim in their report that the Tate brothers do not seem to have income “from lawful activities,” but that beginning in 2018, they bought “numerous properties,” “15 of the rarest and most expensive cars,” estimated to be worth more than £3 million, as well as jewelry and $400,000 in cryptocurrency.
Prosecutors claim that the brothers receive $5 million a month in membership fees from their online forums, the War Room and Hustler’s University.
Romania is getting ready to prosecute this case in front of a large international audience. In a statement earlier this year, its Organized Crime Unit acknowledged that it was still looking into the case’s potential connections to crimes like money-laundering and trafficking in children. No official suspects have been named as of yet
Years could pass before a verdict is reached in the trial itself.
The prosecution claims that Andrew Tate’s video tutorials on how to enlist, manage, and exploit women are consistent with the evidence they have.
Supporters, meanwhile, laud his financial success and self-control.
The universe has already been split into prosecution and defense in the online version of Andrew Tate. But his actual activities are being put on trial in the court proceeding that will soon get underway in Bucharest.
