June 12, 2018 05:20 PM

NXIVM announced Tuesday they are suspending operations until further notice.

A statement on their website reads the following:

"It is with deep sadness that we inform you we are suspending all NXIVM/ESP enrollment, curriculum and events until further notice.   

We will be in touch with more information for anyone currently enrolled in upcoming events/programs.

While we are disappointed by the interruption of our operations, we believe it is warranted by the extraordinary circumstances facing the company at this time.  We continue to believe in the value and importance of our work and look forward to resuming our efforts when these allegations are resolved."

This comes the same day leader Keith Raniere and actress Allison Mack were appearing in court.

Federal prosecutors wanted a judge to reject a request by Raniere to be released on $10 million bond. The request was denied.

Prosecutors say they have text messages that prove Raniere was involved in recruiting women as sex slaves.

Raniere's co-defendant, Allison Mack, was released on a $5 million bond in April. She's accused of helping Raniere recruit sex slaves.
