The Armed Forces’ Civil Relations Service (CRS) assured that there will be no pressure on the personnel who sued one of its ground commanders for allegedly slapping her.
Maj. Gen. Ernesto Torres Jr., CRS chief, said he tasked a senior official to investigate the incident between Col. Ramil Anoyo, the 2nd Civil Relations Group’s (2CRG) commander, and his subordinate Airwoman Emilina Francia Bernales.
“Kaya ‘yung pinadala ko na officer para mag-investigate ay more senior than Col. Anoyo, para wala ding pressure kay Bernales,” Torres told the Daily Tribune by phone Thursday.
In a statement given to media earlier, Torres said he tasked the CRS’ own inspector-general to conduct a parallel investigation, after learning of Bernales’ complaint to police.
Torres said he was still waiting for the results, as probers left for the 2CRG’s office in Lucena City, Quezon, only this morning.
“You can be assured, kung sino talaga ang may kasalanan they will be properly dealt with,” he said.
Torres said he ordered the probe immediately after learning the complaint, as Anoyo’s alleged actions, based on his personal knowledge, were “unexpected” of the latter.
The Tribune tried to get in touch with Anoyo to get his side, but a request for interview sent to the 2CRG’s Viber account remained unanswered as of this afternoon.
A similar request was attempted to be coursed through a personnel working for the 2CRG’s radio/livestream program.
On Thursday, the Tribune received a message from someone claiming to be Bernales, asking the previous article on her complaint be taken down.
