Maria for documentation and proper disposition before to the filing of charges for violating the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act and the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees.

Vice Admiral Leopoldo Laroya, the PCG Commandant, has also requested a probe into any other officers or non-officers who may have worked with Anni. According to Laroya, the PCG will never allow extortion or any other form of corruption among its employees.

He also warned Coast Guard personnel that unethical behavior would result in the loss of their dignity as public servants and the squandering of their years of devotion to the country. He also asked candidates to contact Coast Guard Public Affairs at 0927-560-7729 or the official PCG Facebook page to report similar events.
