The defense sanctioned a former commander who used state money to pay for a lawyer for a retired military officer

Defense Minister Javier García sentenced former Army Commander-in-Chief Claudio Feola to fifteen days of rigorous imprisonment for using Armed Forces funds to pay the lawyer of a retired military man accused of human rights violations.

According to the Defense Ministry’s decision, the former commander-in-chief approved the payment of $20,000.

Feola appealed the sanction. The Minister of Defense, Javier García, reported on the case during his visit to the Senate Commission.

“We have completed an investigation that began two years ago. “It was found that in the previous period, state funds were used to finance legal assistance to a person accused of various crimes or human rights violations,” he said.

The defense minister added that the case has been referred to the public prosecutor’s office so that the incident can be investigated.
