Fashion mogul Peter Nygard denied bail in US extradition case

His lawyers had argued that Nygard’s poor health left him vulnerable if he were to be infected by the new coronavirus in prison, but Greenberg said that did not automatically qualify him for release.

“It is not a get-out-of-jail-free card,” the judge said in her oral decision.

US justice officials accuse Nygard of having used his influence and businesses to recruit victims in the United States, Canada and the Bahamas since 1995 to sexually gratify himself and his associates.

Born in Finland, Nygard grew up in Manitoba, eventually running his own namesake clothing companies and becoming one of Canada’s wealthiest people.
