Home / News / Alleged drug lord Peter Lim admits being scared for his life

After an intense drug raid operation of big time narcopoliticians Mayor Reynaldo Parojinog Sr. and some of his family members in Ozamiz City, an alleged drug syndicate admits being scared.

Yes, I am scared. Because of the false accusations against me, people might think it’s true,” Peter Lim,Filipino-Chinese Cebu businessman admits.

Although Lim has repeatedly denied allegations of drug charges against him, he is included in President Rodrigo Duterte's list of drug personalities and was previously identified by self-confessed drug lord Kerwin Espinosa as one of his shabu suppliers.

It’s a big lie and is fabricated. The allegations are not true. I’ve never been in that kind of business, and I will never be in that kind of business,” Lim said.

Despite his claims, the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) pursued a case against Lim, Espinosa, and six others for alleged conspiracy to commit “sale, trading, administration, dispensation, delivery, distribution, and transportation of dangerous drugs and/or controlled precursors and essential chemicals.”


The Department of Justice has ordered Lim to attend preliminary investigations set on August 14 and 17, 2017 (Monday and Thursday).
Lim is positive about the preliminary investigation as he views it as his chance to get himself off the roster of drug syndicates.

I’m happy that we’re given the opportunity. Finally, I can clear my name,” he said.

The Cebu businessman says he will not be calling in security forces or bodyguards for protection claiming that he is too poor to afford any.

The public managed to catch a glimpse of Lim’s office and workplace after his lawyers Francis Alex Lopez and Miguel Gabionza permitted the ocular inspection to prove that the businessman was not hiding anything.

Lim speaks up about the difficulty of his situation, but nonetheless, is ready to face the music.

"You know, it’s not easy to be accused of something you have never done. (But) I will answer whatever allegations. I have to face the case,” he said.

His daughter, Caryl Lim, urged to public to reconsider her father’s reputation.


We cannot express how deeply affected we are by the reports that unfairly molded the public’s perception that our father is a drug lord. We appeal to our fellow citizens and friends. Please reserve your judgement against our father,” she said.
