MANILA - The office of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) inspector general is probing allegations that an Army general used soldiers to construct his home in Taguig.

Nonetheless, Brig. Gen. Dante Costes himself is already cooperating, AFP public affairs chief Lt. Col. Ramon Zagala said.

"General Costes has submitted himself to the investigation and the investigation is ongoing. We want to validate if what was written in the complaint is true,” he said.

Costes is the commander of the Armed Forces of the Philippines’ Communications, Elections and Information System Service (CEISSAFP),

The probe was initiated after Chief of Staff Gen. Emmanuel Bautista received an anonymous complaint alleging that Costes utilized more than 20 soldiers to construct his home at the AFP Officers Village Association Inc. in Fort Bonifacio.

The complaint also alleged that Costes diverted CEISSAFP funds for personal use.

"General Costes is aware of the investigation and he submitted himself since the start two weeks ago. On the result of the investigation, we have to wait," Zagala said.

He said the probe would have been easier had the complainant identified himself or herself.

"We have to give the investigators some time...It would have been easier if it wasn't anonymous, if we have used the grievance system because then its official," he said.

The military doesn't usually respond to anonymous complaints, but it was Bautista himself who "takes such allegations and complaints very seriously."

Costes, who is soon to retire, will not be relieved or suspended pending the probe.

"We cannot relieve our officers just like that. We have to look into it deeply and find out the truth...We cannot do a preventive suspension based on an anonymous letter,” Zagala said.
