Mexican general fights back

Mexican Army Brigadier General Marco Antonio Barrón Ávila is facing yet another set of military charges, this time about using military personnel for personal work. The case has opened a can of worms, with photos being offered of similar work being performed for numerous other senior officers. Details here. Excerpt:
During the trial on the renovation case, Barrón presented over 60 photographs in which soldiers can be seen washing cars, carrying furniture and performing construction and paint jobs in the homes of several other generals. 
Without disclosing their names, Barrón claimed that his intention was to expose what he claims has become a common, and unpunished, practice within the Mexican Army.
