RE­SERVIST AC­CUSED OF PUTTING CAM­ERAS IN WOMEN’S WASHROOMS

National Post (National Edition) - - CANADA -

The mil­i­tary has laid seven charges of voyeurism against a full-time army re­servist in Toronto. A mil­i­tary spokesman says the charges against Mas­ter War­rant Of­fi­cer Mardie Reyes come af­ter some­one al­legedly video-recorded fel­low ser­vice mem­bers in se­cret at two lo­cal ar­mouries. The record­ings were pur­port­edly made in a women’s wash­room at Deni­son Ar­moury, and in a chang­ing room at Moss Park Ar­moury, be­tween May 2012 and June 2016. That is when the record­ing de­vice was found, spark­ing an in­ves­ti­ga­tion. Of­fi­cials say Reyes is a 26-year mil­i­tary vet­eran who de­ployed twice to Afghanistan and once to the Philip­pines in Novem­ber 2013 to help with re­lief ef­forts fol­low­ing Ty­phoon Haiyan. The case is be­ing han­dled through the mil­i­tary jus­tice sys­tem, in­clud­ing a po­ten­tial court martial. De­fence chief Gen. Jonathan Vance has promised a zero-tol­er­ance ap­proach to sex­ual mis­con­duct in the ranks, in­clud­ing pos­si­ble re­lease for those who are found guilty of such be­hav­iour.
