UN Links of Sex Trafficking Nygard Uncovered By Inner City Press As With Ghislaine Maxwell

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Song Podcast
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

UN GATE, Jan 2 – Peter Nygard, jailed for sex trafficking, before his arrest had numerous United Nations connections, just like Ghislaine Maxwell. The UN itself covers up the child rapes by its peacekeepers, with UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres withholding basic information about the cases from Inner City Press, which Guterres has banned from the UN. But now Inner City Press had dug up this:

"Finnish Ambassador to the UN hosted an exclusive VIP party in conjunction with the Hospitality Committee For United Nations Delegation, Inc. - (HCUND) at the NYGÅRD Fashion Concept Store located in the heart of Times Square, New York. Mrs. Viinanen & guests enjoyed an evening of shopping and a special Fashion Show featuring Peter Nygård's new spring collections.  During the evening, fashion designer, Peter Nygård made a surprise appearance signing autographs and taking photos with the guests."

 This HCUND is based in the building of the UN General Assembly, several of whose Presidents from John Ashe to Sam Kutesa have been shown to have taken bribes, and lists numerous ambassador and, for example, Jan Eliasson. We'll have more on this.

   In the case against Peter Nygard for rape, sexual assault and sex trafficking, on May 7 there was a pre-motion conference before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Edgardo Ramos. Inner City Press covered it, and then the next proceeding in the case on June 3, see below.

  SDNY is the venue of two UN bribery cases, and the prosecution of Ghislaine Maxwell, whose many UN links Inner City Press has exposed, including UNSG Antonio Guterres' head of UN Partnerships Amir Dossal being one of only five people on the board of Maxwell's Terramar project.

 On December 15, Nygard was reported arrested in Canada, to be presented under the Extradition Act. Inner City Press has asked the US Attorney's Office for the SDNY to " say if this is pursuant to a DOJ / SDNY indictment and extradition request."  They replied, "Per Department policy, we cannot comment on extradition matters." Then minutes later they confirmed it.

 Now at the cusp of the year, on New Year's Eve Nygard applied for bail in Canada. The application is to be heard in the Manitoba Court of Queen’s Bench at 10 a.m. on Jan. 6, 2021 - but will there be virtual access, as is the case with Federal court in the US?

And, separately, how do and should victims' rights laws apply, and how will SDNY implement them in the Nygard case(s)? Watch this site.   Nygard faces nine counts in the SDNY, including racketeering conspiracy, sex trafficking of a minor, conspiracy to commit sex trafficking, and two counts of transportation for purpose of prostitution.

Inner City Press has uploaded the sealed indictment to Patreon here, also this song & pod

The case is Does No. 1-10 v. Nygard, et al., 20-cv-1288 (Ramos).
