Brig.-Gen. Daniel Ménard, the former commander of Canada's war effort in Afghanistan, and his subordinate, Master Cpl. Bianka Langlois, have been charged by military police after admitting to a sexual affair while on duty.

The Canadian Forces National Investigation Service launched an investigation shortly after Langlois acknowledged she had an affair with Ménard. The charges were announced by CFNIS Monday in Ottawa.

Ménard faces two counts of conduct to the prejudice of good order and discipline related to alleged inappropriate conduct, under military fraternization regulations.

He's also been charged with one count of obstructing justice and a separate count of conduct to the prejudice of good order and discipline.

Langlois has been charged with one count of conduct to the prejudice of good order and discipline related to alleged inappropriate conduct, under military fraternization regulations.

Ménard was relieved of his command shortly after the allegations came to the knowledge of the military in May, and has since been appointed to a staff job in Ottawa rather than the job he was slated for, as head of the army in Quebec.
