Andrew Tate served with civil proceedings papers on behalf of four British women

Andrew Tate has been served with civil proceedings papers in Romania on behalf of four British women, their lawyers have said.

Lawyers on behalf of the four alleged victims have said they are bringing a case against the social media influencer at the High Court in the UK after the Crown Prosecution Service decided not to prosecute in 2019.

The four women allege Tate raped and assaulted them and are seeking “damages for injuries they suffered as a result”.

Tate, 37, is accused alongside his brother Tristan Tate.

A representative for the Tate brothers said they “unequivocally deny all allegations”, and are “fully committed to challenging these accusations with unwavering determination and resolve”.

Three of the British accusers were the subject of an investigation by Hertfordshire Constabulary.

The Hertfordshire investigation was closed in 2019.

In a statement, McCue Jury and Partners, the law firm represening the four women, said: “Three of the women bringing the civil action reported that Tate had raped and physically assaulted them to the UK police in 2014/2015.

“After a four-year investigation, Hertfordshire Police sent the case to the CPS for a charging decision. In 2019, the CPS decided not to prosecute.

“Despite additional evidence, the CPS have declined the women’s recent requests to review its decision.”
