Navy spokesman Capt. Geronimo Malabanan said the Navy ordered the investigation against former Navy Vice Commander Rear Admiral Joaquin Tan based on complaints lodged by anonymous Navy officers.

Among others, Tan was accused of amassing millions of pesos from illegal transactions he entered into with several suppliers on behalf of the Navy.
Tan is the fourth member of the Philippine Military Academy Class '71 being investigated for alleged misconduct.
However, Tan could no longer be subject to court martial since he has retired last March 10.
The complainants alleged that as the Navy's fleet commander, Tan consolidated all the direct fund support of the Philippine Fleet from the second quarter to the last quarter of 2004 "in the guise of procuring centrally all the requirements of the eight forces and groups under him."
They said Tan replaced all the procurement and finance officers and appointed his own team who allegedly entered into multi-million peso anomalous deals with suppliers.

Gumising alleged that Tan "consolidated all direct fund support of the Philippine Fleet from second quarter to last quarter of 2004 in the guise of procuring centrally all the requirements of the Philippine Navy's eight forces and groups".
