President Aquino accepted PNP Chief Purisima’s resignation

Philippine National Police Chief Director General Alan Purisima who was suspended by the Office of the Ombudsman on December of last year is now officially not the head of PNP after President Aquino accepted his resignation.

“A Cabinet source told ABS-CBN that the President accepted Purisima’s resignation ‘with much equivocation’,” ABS-CBNNews.com says in a news article.

Purisima was accused of gross neglect of duty in connection with the alleged anomalous contract for a courier service from WERFAST Documentary Agency in 2011.

The resignation came several days after the bloody January 25 Mamasapano PNP Special Action Force operation which led to the death of forty-four SAF troopers and Malaysian terrorist Zulkifli bin Hir, alias Marwan known as Osama Bin Laden of Southeast Asia.
