Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte will no longer let the police fight the drug gangs, but it's only a temporary stop. First he needs to "drain the swamp" of corruption.
Duterte has given police orders that they should no longer be involved in the bloody drug war in the country, reports P4.
The reason is that he first wants to clean up the police and remove corruption from the force, before they are again allowed to participate in the war against the drug gangs and drug dealers in the country.
Since July last year, over 6000 people have been shot and killed in drug related incidents in the Philippines.
