Military police say they have charged the former head of human resources for the Canadian Armed Forces with one count of sexual assault.

Vice-Admiral Haydn Edmundson has also been charged with one count of indecent acts.

Edmundson stepped down as head of military personnel command in March due to a police investigation after a CBC report of alleged sexual assault.

He has denied the allegations.

The charges come weeks after Defence Minister Anita Anand announced she had accepted a call to have the investigation and prosecution of military sexual assault cases transferred to civilian authorities.
