Romania’s anti-organised crime unit says it has ramped up the charges against British-American social media personality, Andrew Tate, and his brother Tristan.
They are now being investigated for human trafficking in continued form, a more serious offence than separate counts of trafficking.
The brothers, along with two Romanian women, are under house arrest pending a criminal investigation for suspected human trafficking, rape, and forming a criminal gang to sexually exploit women.
They have all denied the allegations. The case is expected to go to trial later this month. The four could face a prison sentence of up to 10 years if found guilty of trafficking adults.
