United States authorities have charged Canadian fashion icon, Peter Nygard, with racketeering and sex trafficking. The authorities alleged crimes that affected many victims in the United States, the Bahamas and Canada.
Acting US Attorney, Audrey Strauss announced the charges in Manhattan recently. Nygard was arrested and taken into custody recently in Winnipeg, Manitoba by Canadian police after Canada were asked the United States to issue a warrant under the extradition treaty of both countries.
Nygard’s lawyer was not immediately seen but Nygard has denied every allegation of contravening the law in previous civil litigation.
