Andrew and Tristan Tate have arrived at the Bucharest Court of Appeal to contest the extension to their detention period.
Andrew, 36, was heard shouting, ‘you know I’m innocent!’ as he stepped out of a police van.
The Court of Appeal will soon review whether the brothers and their alleged accomplices pose a danger to society.
If the appeal is successful, Andrew and Tristan Tate, 34, will be released immediately. If not, they will remain in detention until at least 27 February.

The brothers, as well as Georgiana Naghel and Luana Alexandra Radu, are held in Romania on a pre-trial detention.
They received a preventive arrest warrant on 30 December 2022 and have since been held by the Directorate for Investigating Organised Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) in Romania, where both are based.
Prosecutors initially argued the brothers, if granted bail, could ‘exercise psychic control’ over the people they are accused of trafficking.
Both have maintained their innocence.
On 20 February, the Bucharest Tribunal extended the preventive arrest warrant from 29 January until 27 February, and could extend further.
