Personnel changes in Manila

There have been significant personnel changes in the Armed Forces of the Philippines legal establishment. According to this report from The Manila Standard:
Before [Gen. Ricardo] Visaya stepped down, he approved the designation of Col. Ma. Victoria Girao as the chief of the Army Judge Advocate Generals Office. 
Her designation to her new position is effective November 28. 
She is the second female officer to be designated Army Jago. The first was retired Brig. Gen. Marianne Aleido
Girao replaces Col. Ukol Paglala who was earlier designated AFP-The Judge Advocate General. 
Paglala is the first Muslim officer to be designated AFP-TJAG, a one-star or brigadier general position. He was also the first Muslin officer to lead the Army Jago.
