Canada's new defence minister says she's accepted a call to move the investigation and prosecution of sexual misconduct and assault cases that happen in the military over from the force's control to civilian police.

Anita Anand says the federal government has accepted ``in full'' the recommendation from retired Supreme Court justice Louise Arbour.

Arbour was the second retired Supreme Court justice to call for the military to transfer criminal cases involving sexual misconduct to civilian authorities.

Morris Fish made a similar recommendation in June, following a comprehensive review of the military justice system.

At that time the government said it agreed with Fish's suggestion in principle, but had yet to take any action.
