AFP general accused of using soldiers as "construction workers" for his house
This definitely needs immediate action.
Jaime Laude of The Philippine Star reports that a military general "is under investigation for allegedly using soldiers assigned to his office based at Camp Aguinaldo in the construction of his three-storey residential house" in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City.
According to the report, a military probe is being conducted on Brig. Gen. Dante Costes, commander of Communication, Electronics Information System Service-Armed Forces of the Philippines (CEISSAFP) in relation to allegations that he used 20 to 30 soldiers as laborers in the ongoing construction of his house at the Armed Forces of the Philippines Village Officers, Inc. (AFPOVAI). An unsigned letter of complaint written by an anonymous group said the soldiers deployed to build Costes' house "are detailed with different units of the CEISSAFP."
The group urged military officials to also look into Costes’ bureau’s spending of its fuel budget because the money is allegedly being used to gas up vans transporting military men to the general’s compound to do carpentry work.
