This bail decision relates to charges Canadian authorities laid against Nygard, 80, in connection with events that allegedly took place between 1987 and 2006. He also faces charges from the United States. He has denied any wrongdoing.

Nygard, born in Finland, consented to extradition last fall but Canada's justice minister must make the final decision on that.
