The Philippine National Police on Wednesday warned that charges of insubordination and absence without official leave
would be filed against its personnel who failed to report to their mother units or the inspectorate affairs service (IAS) after being included in President Duterte's list of those involved in illegal drugs.
Cordero has since gone on absence without official leave
Twenty other police officers were absolved of charges due to lack of evidence, while Napolcom said it could not proceed with the charges against nine others who had gone on absence without official leave
even before charges were filed against them.
Manuel Bringas, Isabela provincial police plans and operations chief, said Michael Deocariza, 31, a former soldier who went on Awol (absence without official leave
) and a native of Caloocan City, and Reynaldo Tapia, 71, a retired soldier from this town, were arrested in Quirino province after a chase.
