Infamous Canadian fashion magnate and accused sex trafficker Peter Nygard was arrested in Canada after years of allegations that he raped and trafficked young girls.
On Monday, Canadian authorities arrested fashion mogul Peter Nygard after he was indicted in Manhattan on charges of sex trafficking and racketeering. The arrest comes as a result of an extradition treaty between Canada and the U.S., where Nygard faces allegations of rape and trafficking. Nygard’s story bears a disturbing resemblance to the case of serial sex abuser Jeffrey Epstein.
The CBC reports:
“According to the affidavit, evidence gathered in the U.S. includes interviews with more than two dozen people.
‘The investigation shows that Nygard’s criminal conduct has affected hundreds of victims,’ the affidavit says. ‘The harm to his victims has included not only economic and psychological harm but also numerous instances of non-consensual sex, including non-consensual group sex, attempted forcible rapes and drugging of victims.’”
