Early exit for Albayalde

Philippine National Police chief Gen. Oscar Albayalde (right) is congratulated by Police Maj. Gen. Guillermo Eleazar after the flag-raising ceremony at Camp Crame in Quezon City on Monday. Albayalde stepped down on Monday after he faced allegations in a Senate hearing that he intervened as a provincial police chief in 2013 to prevent his officers from being prosecuted for allegedly selling a huge quantity of illegal drugs they had seized.
