A vast amount of classified information allegedly leaked to Russia by a Canadian naval intelligence officer has seriously compromised the spy agencies of major English-speaking countries, the Western media has reported.

Sub-Lieutenant Jeffrey Paul Delisle, arrested in Canada’s Nova Scotia province in January, was charged under Security of Information Act with giving classified information to a “foreign entity” for last five years.

“Much of the information sold to the Russians was more highly classified than the WikiLeaks disclosure and included intelligence collected by the ‘Five Eyes’ intelligence community of the US, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand,” reported The Age.

A secret conference was held in New Zealand earlier this year to discuss the possible repercussions of the spy case.
