U.S. may divert PH law enforcement aid | CNN Philippines - September 26, 2016
The United States may take back $6.7 million (₱322 million) in law enforcement aid pledged to the Philippines if the two countries fail to agree on how it will be used.

U.S. Embassy Press Attache and First Secretary Molly Koscina told CNN Philippines, “The $6.7 million in funds can be used only after agreement between the United States and the Philippines on their specific use. If no agreement is reached, the funds may be used in a country other than the Philippines.”

The $32 million pledge was announced during U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s visit to Manila in July. Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella said it would come in the form of trainings and services to boost Philippine law enforcement efforts.
