Senior RCMP member Cameron Ortis, Director-General of an intelligence unit at RCMP HQ, has been arrested and charged under the secrets act involving espionage by foreign powers. #cdnpoli #cdnnatsec globalnews.ca/news/5899146/s…
Ortis faces seven counts dating as far back as 2015, including breach of trust, communicating “special operational information,” and obtaining “terabytes of information,” including a list of undercover operatives, in order to pass it to a “foreign entity.” #cdnpoli #cdnnatsec
Ortis was identified when U.S. authorities “flipped” a suspect who gave him up. His arrest is believed to be part of a wider operation involving NATO allies and the Five Eyes — Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the U.S. and U.K. #cdnpoli #cdnnatsec
Charges stemmed from “his tenure as an RCMP employee.” He knew about every major national security investigation at home and abroad. “If this person succeeded, this could potentially be one of the worst cases of espionage that we’ve ever seen in Canada.” #cdnpoli #cdnnatsec
According to his LinkedIn profile, Ortis speaks Mandarin and has worked as an advisor to the government of Canada for 12 years. Faces up to 37 in prison imprisonment if convicted on all counts. #cdnpoli #cdnnatsec
