The Senate presented a new witness in today's hearing on corruption in the Armed Forces. Ex-Lt. Col. Romeo Mateo, a retired Air Force officer, confirmed conversion of military funds did take place when he served as budget officer in 1989. Without batting an eyelash, Mateo admitted that he, himself, benefitted from this practice. With this, Mateo also asked the Senate for immunity from suit. Top Story, ANC, March 29, 2011
