Philippines to deport Briton for victimizing women


MANILA — Philippine immigration officials are to deport a Briton accused of having sex with a number of women and breaking a promise to support them financially, officials said Wednesday. Richard Holden, 39, was arrested to face deportation proceedings earlier this month at home in the central city of Dumaguete.

“He was arrested after he impregnated at least four Filipino girls, some as young as 16 years old, after making promises to support them financially,” Immigration intelligence chief Faizal Hussin said. The girls have declined to file charges against him, Immigration spokesman Raymond Salting said Wednesday.
