The National Bureau of Investigation is hunting down alleged drug lord Peter Lim, Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II said yesterday.
“Pinahahanap na si Peter Llim ng operatives,” Aguirre told reporters.
On the other hand, the secretary assured that there is no shoot-to-kill order against Lim as President Duterte earlier threatened to do.
“Wala naman shoot to kill na ganun,” he said.
“Ang sinasabi ni presidente palagi niya inuulit-ulit yun, arestuhin mo pag nag-resist ng arrest, nanlalanban, delikado buhay mo,” he clarified.
Aguirre explained that NBI intends to invite Lim for questioning as part of the case build-up against him.
During their meeting last July 19, Duterte only told Lim to submit himself to the investigation of the NBI, but the President threatened to have him killed once the bureau confirms that he is a drug lord.
Alleged drug lord Rolando “Kerwin” Espinosa Jr. has already testified at the Senate hearing that Lim was one of the drug suppliers of slain drug lord Jeffrey “Jaguar” Diaz. (Jeffrey Damicog)
