41-years-old Sub-Lt. Jeffrey Paul Delisle pleaded guilty on Wednesday, acknowledging that he understood the outcome of his plea to the unmatched charges. His sentence will be announced on Jan. 10. Federal Crown attorney, Lyne Decarie, briefed about the case detail during the bail hearing on March 28, stating that the culprit willingly reached out to the Russians in 2007.
Delisle was a part of the military’s intelligence centre on the East Coast. He had knowledge of the information shared by Canada, the United States, Britain, Australia and New Zealand. The court mentioned that “Delisle’s unauthorized disclosure to the Russians since 2007 has caused severe and irreparable damage to Canadian interests.” Decarie stated that Delisle received $5,000 for the first few transfers after July 2007 and then $3,000 every month.
