The army was closed without responsible investigations for Falter's salaries and fares ordered by the Comptroller


Through a reserved resolution, the army has decided to close the "no responsibility" summary ordered by the Office of the Chief Comptroller of the Republic as a result of misappropriation of budgetary resources, which allowed the payment of travel and wages for an activity that was not carried out; and could reach more than 3 billion euros.

According to an investigation by BíoBíoChile, the Mutual Aid Fund (FAM), a kind of informal solidarity system that has been in place since the early sixties, when officers and non-commissioners deposited money monthly by month and when they retired, an amount money similar to a settlement.

The system, in any case, has failed and millions of contributions have been lost. To reduce the losses, the then general Óscar Izurieta solved returns money through travel and work contracts, whose work has never been done. That's what happened until 2016.

The investigation was sent by the army to the committee's control office to make the decision, which can validate or revoke what was done, which is expected to be a rejection. The conclusions reached by the committee's office can be considered as crimes, so the information was sent to the National Prosecutor's Office.

The decision to close the case without responsibility takes place in the midst of statements made last week by Commander Ricardo Martinez Menanteau, commander of the Military School, where he said that his uniform from his navy and the Air Force sold arms to drug traffickers .
