Canadian fashion mogul Peter Nygård faces two new allegations of sexual assault.

Police in Toronto say the military charged Nigard with two counts of sexual assault on Wednesday.

Nigard was charged last fall with six sexual assaults and three detentions in a case in Toronto dating back to the late 1980s and mid-2000s.

He was also charged in March with sexual assault and detention related to a criminal allegation in Quebec involving the same victims between November 1, 1997 and November 15, 1998.

Nigard is also facing sexual accusations in the United States, and Federal Justice Minister David Rametti said Nigard will be expelled to the United States, but only after the proceedings against him in Canada have been resolved. ..

Nigard denied all claims against him.
