RCMP commissioner says intelligence director aiding FBI probe at time of arrest
Top Mountie Brenda Lucki says an RCMP employee charged with trying to disclose secret information was supporting a U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation probe before his arrest.
A sensitive-investigations team looked
for months into possible leaks before the arrest last week of the 47-year-old
Ortis, who faces charges under the Security of Information Act as well as two
Criminal Code provisions for allegedly trying to disclose classified material
to a foreign entity or terrorist group.
