ANDREW Tate and his brother Tristan are to face trial in Romania over allegations of  human trafficking, rape and forming a criminal gang to sexually exploit women. 

The Tate brothers and two Romanian female suspects are under house arrest as part of an investigation into allegations which were made by seven women. 

All four have been charged with human trafficking offences and of constituting an organised crime group. 

Tate has also been charged with raping one of the victims, while his brother has been charged with instigating others to violence. 

They have denied the accusations. A trial date is yet to be set. 

On Tuesday, Romanian prosecutors agreed to send all four suspects to trial. In a statement announcing the decision to go to trial, Romania's Directorate for the Investigation of Organised Crime and Terrorism also revealed authorities sezied more than $384 million worth of Bitcoin from cryptocurrency wallets belonging to the Tates. 

It was also revealed that authorities had seized 15 building and pieces of land, 15 luxury cars, 14 luxury watches, two ingots - blocks of normally precious metal - and a medal as part of their investigation.
