Tate, 36, a dual British-U.S. citizen who has nearly 5 million followers on Twitter, was initially detained in late December in Romanias capital, Bucharest, along with his brother, Tristan, and two Romanian women.

Both the Tates appeared on Wednesday, in handcuffs as they were escorted by law enforcement officials from a police van to the offices of DIICOT, Romanias Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism, in Bucharest.

Ramona Bolla, a DIICOT spokesperson, confirmed to The Associated Press that the forensic searches of the digital devices are taking place Wednesday, in order to obtain further evidence in the case.

Responding to a journalists question as he arrived at the DIICOT offices, Andrew Tate was heard saying that the case file is completely empty and that there is no justice in Romania. His brother, Tristan, was also heard saying: ...for my money, that is why I am in jail, I have money that they were going to steal.
