In the US, the daughter of a Canadian billionaire was convicted of links with a sex cult

The daughter of the former head of the Canadian corporation Seagram, billionaire Edgar Bronfman, Claire, was sentenced in the United States to six years and nine months in prison after pleading guilty to fraudulent transactions in connection with the sex cult NXIVM, according to CNN.

Earlier it was reported that Claire Bronfman confessed to harboring a man who lived in the country illegally for unpaid “work and services.” She also revealed that she was conducting fraudulent credit card transactions on behalf of Keith Ranier, head of NXIVM.
