Philippine drug war chief quits amid narcotics scandal

Manila: The Philippines’ top policeman, who leads the nation’s deadly drugs crackdown, quit on Monday as he faces allegations of protecting officers accused of selling a huge haul of seized narcotics.
Albayalde’s resignation comes days after two former police officials implicated him in a 2013 raid in which officers in a province near Manila allegedly seized and then sold parts of a large methamphetamine haul. One former official claimed Albayalde intervened to protect the officers from disciplinary action, while the other said he received money from the drug sale. (AFP)
