Who are Tate's Angels? Andrew Tate's GF Georgiana Naghel and ex-cop Luana Radu arrested as accomplices
BUCHAREST, ROMANIA: According to reports, the two other suspects arrested in connection with allegations of human trafficking and rape investigation are a model and a former police officer also called 'Tate's Angels.' Luana Radu and Georgiana Naghel were reportedly arrested after being identified as two of Andrew Tate's "closest lieutenants." This has not yet been confirmed by the Directorate for Investigation of Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT), the Romanian government agency in charge of the investigation.
After a police raid on their £600,000 Bucharest residence, Tate, 36, and his brother Tristan, 34, were taken into custody by Romanian authorities on Thursday, December 29. While the inquiry is ongoing, he will be remanded in custody for 30 days.
Radu, 32, and Naghel, 28, have also been detained in connection with the probe, according to the Daily Mail. Four suspects are charged with creating a structured criminal gang with the "purpose of recruiting, housing, and exploiting women by compelling them to produce pornographic content meant to be seen on specialized websites for a cost," according to a DIICOT statement.
Ex-Romanian police sub-inspector Radu, also known as "Ellie Dely" on social media, left the service eight years ago to seek a profession in video chat rooms. Radu is thought to be Tate's admin assistant and supports him in running his projected £100 million online business operation. Meanwhile, Naghel has been identified as a businesswoman who is rumored to be dating Tate. The former professional kickboxer apparently went to Romania five years ago, where Naghel later met him. She allegedly first assisted him with his business endeavors before they had a romantic relationship and rose to prominence in Bucharest's upscale nightlife.
Radu and Naghel are allegedly being imprisoned for 30 days in the same "cockroach-ridden hellhole" as Tate and his brother. According to a source who spoke to the Daily Mail, Tate's "trusted lieutenants and his angels" are Radu and Naghel. "They live a fantastic life which is not in keeping with their financial position." the person added. What Tate might expect in the Bucharest prison has been confirmed in a report by the Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment of the Council of Europe. It says: "Material conditions were generally poor in all the prisons visited. "With cells dilapidated, lacking equipment (storage space, tables and chairs), and mattresses and bedding worn out and infested with bed bugs and cockroaches. Many complaints were received about the very limited access to hot water as well as in respect of the insufficient in-cell heating in winter." The decision to keep the brothers in custody once again will be challenged by both brothers, who deny the accusations made against them. This will likely happen next week, reported Mirror.
