London, Sept 1 (ANI): Four Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) officers could lose their jobs for allegedly watching a sex romp between two lesbian cellmates on CCTV cameras.
The four and three prison workers are alleged to have watched the two female inmates "engage in sexual activity" at the Kalmoops Regional Correctional Centre in British Columbia.
According to reports, the two women had been placed in the same cell on August 18 and they immediately started getting "frisky" with one another.
The session lasted for around an hour and it is alleged that the mounties watched the encounter from a CCTV camera mounted inside the cell block along with prison staff.
Bosses at the RCMP have confirmed that an investigation is underway, and the mounties could face the boot.
"When matters come to our attention, we don't turn a blind eye. We cannot sweep these things under the carpet. If our people do things wrong, we will not turn a blind eye," the Sun quoted Inspector Yves Lacasse as saying.
Staff Sergeant Garry Kerr said the guards had an "obligation" to stop any sort of sexual activity between prisoners.
"If a guard sees that there is inappropriate behaviour going on, considering where they are, obviously they would be in obligation to do something," he said.
"The only thing I can say right now is they're all under Criminal Code investigation, obviously for criminal offences, and the RCMP members are also under investigation for what we refer to as code of conduct, which is like an internal system," he added. (ANI)
