I would imagine they consider him a potential flight risk given that he’s bragged about how many passports he has and how many countries he has citizenship for and don’t want to give him bail while the investigation is ongoing.
I personally find it staggering how the world seems to have suddenly paid so much attention to a guy who is essentially just an internet edgeord with a self-help pyramid scheme side hustle.
Hopefully he’ll vanish back into obscurity at some point.
There is one other option that crossed my mind. Note" this is far out there, so bring your tinfoil hats*
I believe he has bragged on occasion on how easy it is to manipulate and bribe the romanian police/authorities,
He could have staged this whole shabang for himself and the exposure
Little bit of columns A and B minus the conspiracy theory (though that was fun to think about). He is definitely a flight risk and bragged about bribing the officers, so the Romanian authorities aren't going to fuck around.
Thanks to Andrew Tate, Romania became synonymous with human trafficking/sexual assault, which is not a good look internationally. Isn't Romania trying to get some kind of membership in Europe?
Anyways, that's how algorithms work. Andrew Tate blew up on tiktok and youtube early in 2022 to the point that teenage boys across the world changed how they interact with teenage girls and their female teachers. It was... bad. That's why it's important to put him in jail. If you do the things he does, the endgame is not "bugatti, bitches, and money." No sir, you're going to prison.
