Ex-Philippine leader Aquino faces charges over botched raidFormer Philippine president Benigno Aquino is to be charged over a botched anti-terror raid that left 44 elite policemen dead in 2015, a special government prosecutor said Friday. Aquino, who ended his six-year term last year, was indicted for usurping authority and allowing a suspended police chief, Alan Purisima, to run the fatal January 2015 commando raid, the government Ombudsman said. “Purisima would not have been placed in such a position… were it not for the complicity and influence of President Aquino,” Ombudsman Conchita Morales said in a statement.
