A REWARD of P500,000 would be given by the government to anyone who will give information on the whereabouts of alleged drug lord Peter Go Lim, Justice Secretary Menardo I. Guevarra said.
In a text message to reporters, Mr. Guevarra said: “The (government) is also ready to give a reward of P500,000 to anyone who can give information on the exact whereabouts of accused Peter Go Lim, provided that such information will lead to the actual arrest of said fugitive.”
The secretary also warned those protecting Mr. Lim.
“The DOJ (Department of Justice) warns persons coddling Peter Go Lim, who has been indicted for conspiracy to trade in illegal drugs, that they will be prosecuted for obstruction of justice and punished accordingly,” he said.
The DOJ in August has formally charged Mr. Lim for the violation of Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 for “conspiracy to commit illegal drug trading.”
Initially, the DOJ dropped the complaint charged against Mr. Lim, confessed drug lord Kerwin Espinosa and others due to inconsistencies in the evidence.
Also in August, Makati City Regional Trial Court Branch 65 has ordered Mr. Lim’s arrest after affirming the DOJ’s decision.
