Daughter of late British peer killed in Philippines drug war | World news | The Guardian – A dual British-Filipino citizen, Maria Moynihan was also accused of involvement in the narcotics business. She had been on bail following charges of possession of illegal drugs in 2013. “Witnesses told us they heard a series of gunshots, then saw a vehicle leaving the area. They did not see its licence plates,” Ch Insp Tito Jay Cuden told Agence France-Presse. He said no arrests had been made. “She’s considered a drug personality,” he added. The Philippines president, Rodrigo Duterte, has spent his first three months in office waging a campaign to kill all involved in the rampant drugs trade, causing outrage from rights groups and foreign governments.
