MANILA, Philippines (Updated 6:39 p.m.) — Former Defense Officer-in-Charge Jose Faustino Jr. filed his resignation after he belatedly found out of changes in leadership within the Armed Forces of the Philippines, which is under the defense department, he said Tuesday.


According to Faustino’s statement, which was first published by CNN Philippines, he only learned from news reports and social media posts of Gen. Andres Centino taking his oath at Malacañang over the weekend as he resumed his post as chief of the AFP.


"Through the years, the AFP has metamorphosed into an institution that the Filipino people can truly be proud of… it is a highly disciplined and competent organization that will survive under any given circumstance," Faustino said.
