Canadian Navy concludes investigation before speaking to all witnesses
CA, 25 Mar 2021
There are new developments into sexual misconduct allegations in the Canadian Navy.
As Global News reported on Tuesday night, the internal probe was closed before all witnesses or complainants were spoken to, according to sources. Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan has requested a review. “I learned of the conclusion of this investigation late yesterday and I have concerns,” Sajjan said Wednesday, adding he has spoken with acting chief of the defence staff Lt.-Gen. Wayne Eyre about it.
Sajjan said he has asked Eyre to conduct a review on “how this matter was handled.”
The investigation into alleged inappropriate comments — where the senior officers allegedly joked that a female member wanted to show off her “red room” while on a Zoom call — also did not look into the alleged comments that followed, which sources say involved BDSM and “kinky sex.”
