A court in Romania on Friday ruled that a trial could start in the case of influencer Andrew Tate, who has been charged with human trafficking, rape and forming a criminal gang to sexually exploit women.

The Bucharest Tribunal ruled that the prosecutors’ case file against Tate met the legal criteria but it did not set a date for the trial to begin.

A spokesperson for Tate said the ruling would be appealed.

Tate was arrested in December 2022 near Bucharest along with his brother, Tristan, and two Romanian women.

Romanian prosecutors formally indicted all four in June last year.

They have denied the allegations.
