RCMP special constable charged with sexual assault
Special Const. Mosesie Ikkidluak charged with 3 counts of sexual assault in Iqaluit
An RCMP special constable stationed in Iqaluit has been charged with sexual assault, according to an RCMP media release issued Tuesday.
Special Const. Mosesie Ikkidluak faces three counts of sexual assault under the Criminal Code of Canada, contrary to Section 271.
The charges are in relation to incidents that allegedly occurred in Iqaluit between 2008 to Sept. 2021, while Ikkidluak was off duty, police say.
Nunavut RCMP Chief Supt. Amanda Jones said in the release that the conduct of police officers “is paramount in maintaining the trust of the communities they serve.”
“The criminal charges laid are very serious,” she said. “These allegations do not reflect the integrity of our individual members nor does it represent what we stand for as a police service.”
The RCMP news release did not say whether Ikkidluak was still working with the police in light of the charges but added the police are not releasing any further details.
