You may not know the name of this high-profile mogul, but he’s huge in the fashion industry and he’s worth $900 million bucks.
His name is Peter Nygard, he’s Canadian, but works a lot out of NYC and LA, and he was just arrested for sex trafficking.
Another big-time perverted elite gets caught.
Nygard’s charges stem from crimes allegedly committed in the US.
It’s getting harder and harder to deny that there’s a “sex ring” operated by filthy rich scum buckets, isn’t it?
Canadian fashion mogul Peter Nygard is in custody in Winnipeg and is facing a nine-count indictment in the United States on charges of racketeering, sex trafficking and related crimes.
The 79-year-old was taken into custody Monday in Winnipeg by RCMP and city police after the United States asked Canada to issue a warrant under the two countries’ extradition treaty.
The charges relate to “a decades-long pattern of criminal conduct involving at least dozens of victims in the United States, the Bahamas, and Canada, among other locations,” according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York.
The FBI, who raided Nygard’s offices in New York and Los Angeles in February this year, requested the arrest warrant.
A dishevelled-looking Nygard, who is currently being held at the Winnipeg Remand Centre, appeared in court Tuesday afternoon with his long hair in a bun. His feet and hands were shackled and he wore a grey sweatshirt and grey track pants.
Nygard’s lawyer, Jay Prober, asked for a publication ban.
Scott Farlinger, representing the Attorney General of Canada, opposed it, saying publication bans are issued in Canada to protect the accused’s right to a fair trial, which doesn’t apply in this case as the trial will be held in the U.S.
“The survivors of our lawsuit have been waiting for this day for a very long time,” Lisa Haba, one of the lawyers representing victims who are suing Nygard alleging rape and sexual assault, told CBC News.
“Peter Nygard’s arrest marks the next chapter in holding him and his accomplices accountable for the unspeakable crimes against women and children they have perpetuated for decades. We will continue to seek justice.”
Good to see another filthy rich monster has been taken down.
