NXIVM's Mexican branch shuts down

MEXICO (NEWS10) - The Mexican branch of NXIVM, a Capital Region based "self-help group" has been shut down.

NXIVM has been said to have "cult-like" operations masquerading as a company that "promotes human potential."

A notice with Thursday’s date on it was posted to ESP-Mexico’s website saying activities and collaboration with ESP Mexico will be concluded.

This coming as NXIVM's leader Keith Raniere appeared in a Brooklyn federal court yesterday to be arraigned on several charges including sex trafficking.

The statement below is translated into English from ESP-Mexico:
