A second sexual assault charge has been filed against a retired military officer in connection with alleged incidents at the Royal Military College (RMC) in Kingston, according to the Canadian Armed Forces.
Cory Gelowitz has been charged with one count of sexual assault contrary to section 271 of the Criminal Code of Canada.
Canadian military police charge retired lieutenant general with sexual assault
The case will now go through the civilian justice system, the Canadian Armed Forces said, noting that no further information will be released at this time.
Recently retired Lieutenant General. Trevor Cadieu has also been charged with two counts of sexual assault, according to a June 15 press release.
The case relates to incidents that allegedly took place in 1994 at RMC.
PKBNEWS has confirmed that the charges stem from an alleged rape dating back to when Cadieu was a cadet.
Cadieu was in Ukraine, where he had served as a senior adviser to the Ukrainian military after suddenly withdrawing from Canadian forces in April. In a statement, Cadieu said he would come back and cooperate with the legal process.
He previously called the accusations against him false.
Cadieu had been chosen to lead the army late last year, but that plan was derailed when military police began investigating him.
He never held the position, but retained the three-star promotion.
The Canadian Armed Forces are in the midst of a trial for sexual misconduct and abuse of power within its ranks, including at the highest levels.
