The BDF gave no details as when the incident occurred or which “enemy” the senior military official had communicated with, adding that he had also been charged with “one count of conduct to the prejudice of good order and military discipline…and one count of neglect to the prejudice of good order and military discipline”.

The BDF said that the media and at least 20 members of the public would be allowed to attend the Court Martial hearing to be held at its headquarters at the Garrison on the outskirts of the capital.
