    Andrew Tate has released a video from prison complaining about his conditions as he moaned about cockroaches in his cell and a lack of natural light.

    Tate, a former pro kickboxer and social media personality, is currently locked up in a Romanian prison after his arrest on December 29 last year on suspicion of human trafficking, rape and being part of an organised crime gang.

    "They're trying to break me,” he says, adding that he has been “thrown inside a cell without light,” and saying that “they” are trying to break him.

    It’s unclear exactly who Tate, 36, thinks is responsible for the conditions in the jail, but he has previously spoken of a shadowy conspiracy he calls “the Matrix”.

    A report from the Council of Europe’s Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment made it clear that Romanian prisons have been grim places since long before Tate’s arrest at the end of last month.

    It is unclear whether Tate sent the email or someone sent it on his behalf,

    He doesn’t blame the prison guards for the inhumane conditions of Aiud Prison in Transylvania.

    "Cockroaches, lice and bed bugs, are my only friends at night,” he writes in his “daily lessons from unjust imprisonment,” adding “When the guards bring me to and from the courtroom, I stay absolutely respectful.

    "They try to pour hatred into my heart. But please and thank you, you stick with me at all times.

    "Our prison guards are just performing their jobs, they have families to feed in times of hardship. Do not forget your manners."

    "They are trying to break my iron mind with unjust imprisonment," Tate claims. "My absolute respect for everyone around me is my act of absolute rebellion.

    "They cannot break me."

    Tate was arrested, along with his younger brother Tristan, and two Romanian women, Luana Radu and Georgiana Naghel, after a 22-year-old American woman claimed to police that the former kickboxer had held her against her will and raped her.

    He was arrested last month on suspicion of human trafficking, rape, and forming an organised crime group to exploit women.

    While he remains behind bars, his Twitter account remains active – although it’s not clear whether the messages are being posted by Tate or one of his followers.

    One post reads: “'In the darkened silence of solitary confinement there is almost no noise. Pray for me, I can hear you."
