A key witness for former Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been indicted on new charges of sex trafficking minors.

George Nader, a key witness for Mueller and a Lebanese businessman, has been charged with trafficking a 14-year-old male to the United States for sex, The Daily Caller reported.

Nader was charged on three counts, including a charge for possessing child pornography and one for traveling with a minor to engage in illegal sexual activity. He is accused of transporting the teenage boy from Europe to his home in the U.S. in 2000.

The indictment, which was handed down July 3, comes on top of one unsealed in June against Nader, who was a longtime adviser to the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates.

Nader played a key role in setting up a meeting in January 2017 between defense contractor Erik Prince and the head of Russia’s direct investment fund in the Seychelles.
