Chile’s Former Army Chief under Investigation for Corruption

SANTIAGO – The Chilean Attorney General’s Office is investigating former army commander Gen. Juan Miguel Fuente-Alba to determine how he amassed a fortune of more than 3 billion pesos ($4.5 million) over the last decade.

The probe follows the discovery of documents showing that the retired general owns five properties and two late-model luxury vehicles, newsweekly The Clinic reported on Friday.

Authorities also found evidence of two additional residences listed under the name of Fuente-Alba’s wife.

Fuente-Alba, who was army chief from 2010-2014, earned a salary of roughly $5,300 a month, not nearly enough to have acquired the listed properties and assets.

The difference between the general’s accumulated official compensation and the value of his assets is more than $1.2 million.

Prosecutors suspect they have stumbled onto a new facet of the “Milicogate” case, in which army officers were found to have diverted more than $3 million in public funds during the 2010-2014 administration of President Sebastian Piñera.
