The case of a Canadian navy intelligence officer accused of passing information to a foreign entity has been adjourned until April.

Sub.-Lt. Jeffrey Delisle will have a bail hearing April 13 in Halifax provincial court.

Delisle faces two charges of violating the Security of Information Act that deal with communicating information that could harm national interests.

Court documents say one of the alleged offences happened between July 6, 2007, and Jan. 13, 2012, while the other offence is alleged to have happened between Jan. 10 and Jan. 13 of this year.

The Halifax man also faces a breach of trust charge under the Criminal Code that is alleged to have happened between July 6, 2007, and Jan. 13, 2012.

All the offences are alleged to have happened in or near Halifax, Ottawa and Kingston, Ont.

Up until 2010, Delisle worked for both the Chief of Defence Intelligence and at the Strategic Joint Staff, which oversees virtually every major aspect of the military’s domestic and international plans and operations.

He joined the military as a reservist private in 1996 and was posted to the 3 Intelligence Company in Halifax.

He went on to join the regular forces in 2001, was promoted to sergeant before being accepted at university for two years in Kingston as an officer candidate and eventually landed back in Halifax at the army’s Atlantic headquarters.

In August of last year, Delisle was posted to Trinity, a highly secure naval intelligence centre in Halifax.

He was arrested in January and charged under a section of the Security of Information Act that was passed by the House of Commons after the terrorist attacks on the United States on Sept. 11, 2001.

The RCMP say the charges against Delisle mark the first time that anyone has been charged under that section of the act.
