Since December 29, 2022, Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan Tate have spent almost 3 months in detention. The former kickboxing champion and his brother Tristan were arrested in their Romanian compound during a search. They were detained on accusations that involve human trafficking and rape. However, Tate’s attorney brought an update which once again brought to light Brittney Griner’s swap deal with Russia, involving Viktor Bout.
There is not much information about an update in their case. However, his attorney Tina Glandian has provided some positive updates about it. Glandian recently gave major updates about the case, which happens to be a civil defamation case. “It’s a case signed by civil attorneys in the U.S. because it pertains to a civil defamation case which will be filed here in the US,” Glandian said.
The Tate brothers are actively trying to find out the truth and clear their names. Andrew has written a letter to his faithful about the horrible living conditions in the detention center. There have been several reports about Tate having lung cancer. However, those reports were dismissed after his team cleared the rumors. The court has ruled that Andrew and Tristan will remain in custody until the end of April.

Since his detention, the US embassy has not intervened in the case. Unlike the Brittney Griner case, it is something where the US embassy played a major role in bringing the US citizen home. The US embassy struck a deal with Russia in exchange for Viktor Bout if they accepted to send Griner. Since then, Griner’s case has been linked to all US citizens who have been detained abroad. In Tate’s case, help is also being demanded by the US embassy.
The US Embassy agrees to provide assistance to Andrew Tate and his brother
In recent news brought by Tate’s attorney, it is now confirmed that the US embassy will be intervening in the case. Glandian thanked the US embassy for its involvement in the ongoing case. “We are grateful that the US embassy has now taken interest in this case. I know that one of their highest priorities is to provide assistance to US citizens detained abroad like they’ve done for countless other citizens and recently for Brittany Greiner and Taylor Dudley. We are optimistic that with their assistance we can finally take Tate brothers home,” Glandian added.
There is no substantial evidence found against Andrew and Tristan since their arrest back in December. This development is good news for Tate and his brother, especially for his fans. This intervention by the US embassy will bring in information and resources to speed up the process.
