Tate brothers are free as of Friday evening, March 31. The Bucharest Court of Appeal decided on their release from jail and placed them under house arrest.
The Court accepted the appeals filed by the defendants Tate III Emory Andrew, Tate Tristan, Naghel Georgiana Manuela and Radu Alexandra Luana against the conclusion of 22.03.2023 pronounced by the judge of rights and freedoms of the Bucharest Court.Bucharest Court of Appeal
Thus, the court decided to replace the measure of preventive arrest for the Tate brothers and for the two accomplices, Georgiana Naghel and former police officer Alexandra-Luana Radu, with house arrest for 30 days, from 31.03.2023, until 29.04.2023, inclusive.
The Tate brothers were arrested in December 2022 and spent 3 months in police custody and under arrest.
It appears that their decision to bring over Tina Glandian from Geragos&Geragos paid off. In less than two months from that moment, the Tate brothers are released from jail.
Immediately after he arrived home, Andrew Tate posted a short film on Twitter with a message to his fans.

Rules for house arrest in Romania
In Romania, house arrest has similar rules to other European jurisdictions. These are the rules that the Tate brothers have to abide by, but also, there are some opportunities for them to leave their current living place.
According to the law, the measure of house arrest consists of the obligation imposed on the defendant, for a certain period, not to leave the building where he lives without the permission of the judicial body that ordered the measure or in front of which the case is and to submit to certain restrictions established by it.
Also, during house arrest, the defendant has the following obligations:
a) to appear before the criminal investigation body, the judge of rights and liberties, the judge of the preliminary chamber or the court whenever he is summoned;
b) not to communicate with the injured person or his family members, with other participants in the commission of the crime, with witnesses or experts, as well as with any other persons who do not usually live with him or are not in his care.
(c) The judge of rights and liberties, the judge of the preliminary chamber or the court may order that during house arrest, the defendant must permanently wear an electronic surveillance system.
During the measure, the defendant can leave the building provided in paragraph (1) for presentation before the judicial bodies upon their summons.
There are some exceptions to the rule of house arrest
At the defendant’s written and reasoned request, the judge of rights and liberties, the judge of the preliminary chamber or the court, by way of a decision, may allow him to leave the building to present himself at the workplace, at educational or professional training courses or other similar activities or for the procurement of the essential means of existence, as well as in other thoroughly justified situations, for a determined period, if this is necessary for the realization of some rights or legitimate interests of the defendant.
Also, in urgent cases, for valid reasons, the defendant can leave the building without the permission of the judge of rights and liberties, the judge of the preliminary chamber or the court, immediately informed about this, the institution, body or authority designated with his supervision and the judicial body who took the measure of house arrest or before whom the case is pending.
