Suspended Ottawa Police Deputy Chief Uday Jaswal released a statement via his attorney concerning the additional charges he now faces.

Jaswal has been charged with two counts of discreditable conduct under the Police Services Act, which relates back to his time in the Durham region.

Back in March, Jaswal was suspended from the Ottawa Police Service pending the outcome of an Ontario Civilian Police Commission investigation into allegations of sexual harassment and sexual solicitation or advances.

In a statement delivered by attorney Ari Goldkind, had this to say: “The Deputy Chief remains concerned that the OCPC continues to demonstrate a lack of impartiality and fairness. The OCPC continues to be his Investigator, his Prosecutor, his Judge and his Jury. We will answer these allegations in due course.”

Allegations of misconduct were made by a civilian employee of the police service against Jaswal back in 2015 when he was a superintendent. 

CORRECTION: This article had referred to Ottawa Police Deputy Chief Uday Jaswal as 'former' deputy chief, which is not correct. He has only been suspended.
