Last week, a Finnish-born Peter Nygård was sued for allegedly running a sex circle and violating the Human Trafficking Protection Act for a fashion entrepreneur. Ten women accuse Nygård of rape. Nygård has denied the allegations.
Greg Gutzler, a lawyer representing women in the class action lawsuit, says he has received numerous communications after the mass action lawsuit has been reported.
"We have been contacted by dozens of witnesses and victims from four countries and (they have been reporting alleged events) for 40 years," Gutzler told IS on Friday night.
- Calls are flooding us all the time.
Gutzler did not specify which countries had come from. Nine of the women involved in the lawsuit are from the Bahamas and one is from the United States.
However, the lawyer said that contacts have not yet come from Finland.

Gutzler previously reported that he had himself investigated the alleged events in the class action lawsuit for two years.
- We have witnesses to confirm the information, we have evidence that the women have been present where the rape is alleged to be, we have photographic evidence, in some cases we have medical evidence and we have third parties telling us to bring and confirm the woman, what has happened.
According to Gutzler, the stories of those who contacted him are being reviewed. If the facts are up, more people may join the class action.
The lawyer estimates that it will take about a couple of years to process a class action.
