Assault and sexual assault charges against a Charlottetown teacher will be proceeding after a preliminary inquiry was held in provincial court Wednesday in Charlottetown.
Sylvain Aritho Amfoubalela appeared before Judge Nancy Orr for the hearing to determine if there was enough evidence to proceed with a trial.
Two witnesses testified Wednesday, but a publication ban prevents the release of any information presented during the preliminary hearing.
A publication ban also prevents the release of any details that could identify the alleged victim.
With the preliminary hearing finished, the case against Amfoubalela is proceeding and he will have to enter pleas in the P.E.I. Supreme Court.
Amfoubalela, who is black and from the Congo, was once at the centre of a lengthy human rights complaint hearing after he alleged he wasn't hired for a permanent teaching position at École Évangéline because of his race.
He was more recently a teacher at Birchwood Intermediate School, but none of the allegations against him involve students or staff at the school.
