Canadian fashion designer Nygard denied bail in U.S. extradition case

- Canadian fashion mogul Peter Nygard was denied bail on Friday in a Winnipeg, Manitoba courtroom, after spending nearly two months in jail on a U.S. extradition request.

Canadian police arrested Nygard in Winnipeg on Dec. 14 at the request of U.S. justice officials under the countries' extradition treaty. Nygard faces nine counts in the U.S. of sex trafficking and racketeering.
