The report, which was submitted to the Santiago Court of Appeal, confirmed that the army has promoted its posts to officials accused of tax fraud.
This new inconsistency is known at a time when the Army is in the center of the dispute, first in the Viáticos case, and now with the Chief of Captain General Ricardo Martínez Menanteau, in which he acknowledges that the authority sells weapons to drug dealers.
