(2)      Upon recommendation of the Board of Trustees, AFPCES, or whenever circumstances so warrant and with the approval of the Minister of National Defense, the Chief of Staff, AFP, shall institute appropriate administrative and/or legal action against any authorized AFPCES customer who may be found violating any AFPCES rules and/or procedure or otherwise found abusing his tax-exemption privilege.  Such administrative and/or legal action shall likewise apply to any AFPCES personnel who may be found to be responsible for or involved, directly or otherwise, in the commission of such violation.

 

(3)      Based on available data and in line with the policy of the government, the purchase of tax-free petroleum products for resale to authorized customers by AFPCES shall not exceed the quantities hereunder indicated for each product in any calendar month.
