Influencer Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan Tate were indicted Tuesday by Romanian authorities on charges of rape, human trafficking and organized crime, officials said. 

Two associates of the Tate brothers were also charged. Everyone who was indicted has denied the allegations, according to the BBC

The Tate brothers were arrested in 2022 in Romania as officials pursued an investigation into the alleged crimes. They were released on house arrest in March.

The indictment states that the four defendants created an organized criminal group in 2021 to traffic people in Romania and several other countries, including the United States and the United Kingdom. It also names seven people who accused the state brothers of recruiting them by falsely promising love and marriage. 

The trial is expected to last several years, according to the British outlet.
