A court martial is scheduled to get underway in Victoria today for a former commander of a B.C. naval base.
Retired Naval Commander Nord Mensah is facing three charges related to allegations that he pursued and engaged in a sexual relationship with someone directly under his supervision in 2015.
He was Acting Base Commander in Victoria at the time.
The court martial will be held in front of a military judge and is expected to take one day, although it could be extended if necessary.
