A federal public servant at Global Affairs who is being sued by a female former Afghan interpreter has now been charged criminally in relation to allegations in the lawsuit.

Galal Eldien Ali, a 64-year-old resident of Ottawa, has been charged with 11 counts, including multiple counts of sexual assault and sexual exploitation of a young person, assault, uttering threats and extortion.

The charges are related to the former interpreter's claim that Ali sexually assaulted her multiple times between 2011 and 2013. Her name is under an automatic publication ban because of the nature of the charges.

The woman says she met Ali at Camp Nathan Smith in Afghanistan. She says he helped her come to Canada under a special immigration program for Afghans.

She claims Ali began assaulting her almost immediately after her arrival in Canada, when she was 17. She also says Ali threatened her to convince her not to speak out about the abuse.
