Disgraced social media influencer Andrew Tate has dubbed his arrest as a "political operation" aiming to end his influence over the masses.
In a post on Twitter, the Hustlers University founder shared a video of Norica Nicolai, former prosecutor and ex member of European parliament, who claimed that the arrests of Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan Tate were a setup.
Andrew said: "My case is a political operation designed to degrade my influence. Throughout history, unjust imprisonment has been used to silence empowering people. The game hasn't changed."
He then share the interview clip where Nicolai said: "Initially I thought it was a cover-up for something. However, from a criminal point of view everything looks like an improvisation."
"Even the judge has excluded the rape accusation and what the prosecution had on file was not sufficient evidence to convince anyone it was rape so the judge asked for more evidence.
"And regarding the human trafficking accusation, obviously a very sensitive topic for the USA, who is monitoring human trafficking, it is quite improvised, rigged.
"My opinion is that the authorities in Bucharest simply executed an order. I think it is an operation.
"I haven’t seen any people, being deprived of liberty, being coerced to participate in such activities. Rather they [Tate brothers] are some figures who have a certain influence especially in the United States and Great Britain who are against neo-Marxist formulas.
"It seems that someone has given an order to make the Tate brothers disappear from their capacity to influence the public, especially Andrew because he is the most vocal."
Andrew Tate and Tristan Tate are currently in the custody of Romanian authorities as they are being investigated for their crimes in connection to human trafficking, rape and organised crime.
