OTTAWA — Cameron Jay Ortis , a senior RCMP official accused of breaching Canada’s official- secrets law, should learn next week whether he will be released on bail . A two-day bail hearing wrapped up Friday and a decision is slated for Tuesday.

Ortis, 47, is charged with violating the Security of Information Act and breach of trust for allegedly disclosing secrets to an unknown recipient and planning to reveal additional classified information to an unspecified foreign entity.

He faces a total of seven counts under various provisions, with the alleged offences dating from as early as Jan. 1, 2015 through to Sept. 12 of this year.

Evidence at the bail hearing and reasons for the decision are subject to a publication ban.
