The government is offering a P500,000 reward to anyone who can give information that will lead to the arrest of Cebu-based businessman Peter Lim.

Lim is currently the subject of a warrant of arrest issued by the Makati City Regional Trial Court. He is facing a criminal case for violation of Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.

“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,” Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra said.

Guevarra also warned those coddling Lim that they can be indicted and prosecuted for obstruction of justice.

“The DOJ 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,” Guevarra added.

A hearing for Lim’s co-accused was supposed to continue Friday but was canceled due to Typhoon “Ompong.”/jpv
