Peter Nygard has been arrested in Winnipeg, where he’s to appear in court on sex trafficking charges
The 79-year-old fashion magnate has been under investigation for allegations of sexual assault in Manitoba’s capital, the U.S., and the Bahamas.
The FBI raided his New York and L.A. officers last February.
Nygard faces a class-action lawsuit in the U.S. by 57 women, including 18 Canadians, who allege he used the promise of modeling and other fashion industry jobs to lure victims, who were sexually abused and assaulted by him and his co-conspirators.
The women are seeking a trial by jury and as yet-to-be determined damages.
