In his privilege speech delivered Wednesday afternoon, Amante described as “armed mercenaries” the police team that raided the house of the Montons on November 28. EASTERN Mindanao Command chief Lt. Gen. BenjaminMadrigal Jr. is the next Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP).

Madrigal will replace Gen. Carlito Galvez Jr., who will reach the mandatory retirement age of 56 on December 12.

INQUIRER.net, sister company of Bandera, has obtained a copy of the appointment paper signed by

Pr e s i d e n t Ro d r i g o Duterte on December 5.

“I wish to inform you that, per your letter-endorsement and in accordance with the recommendation of the Chief of Staff, Armed Forces of the Philippines and Chairman, AFP Board of Generals, pursuant to Republic Act No. 9188, the designation of LIEUTENANT GENERAL BEN JAM IN MADRIGAL JUNIOR O-9228 ARMED FORCESOF THE PHILIPPINES as Chief of Staff, Armed Forces of the Philippines vice GEN CARL ITO GALVEZ JR )-9267 AFP is hereby APPROVED effective December 12, 2018,” the letter read.

Defense Secretar y Delfin Lorenzana earlier said that Madrigal, a member of the Philip- pine Military Academy “Sandiwa” Class of 1985, was the most senior of the recommendees of the AFP board of generals and was the likely successor of Galvez.
