Andrew Tate, the wealth-flaunting online influencer known for his misogynistic views, and his brother, Tristan, can be extradited to Britain to face sex crime charges after their trial in Romania concludes, the Bucharest Court of Appeal said on Tuesday.

The brothers were taken into custody Monday night in Romania on a European arrest warrant issued by the British authorities, the Romanian police said.

The charges related to the arrest were made between 2012 and 2015 and include allegations of sexual aggression, a spokesman for Mr. Tate said. The spokesman added that the charges had since been dismissed by the Crown Prosecution Service.

The police in Romania said in a brief statement that the arrest warrants were for sexual crimes and the exploitation of individuals in Britain. The men were ordered detained for 24 hours, it said. The court in Bucharest said in its extradition ruling on Tuesday that the brothers could be released.

Eugen Vidineac, a lawyer for the brothers, said the ruling “provides an opportunity for the brothers to participate fully in their defense and for the legal process to proceed in a transparent manner.”
