JUSTICE Secretary Menardo Guevarra yesterday said that there is no need for now to seek the help of the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) in locating businessman and alleged drug lord Peter Lim.
“Too early to alert Interpol. No record that Peter Lim has left the country since his indictment,” Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra said.
As per records from the Bureau of Immigration (BI), Lim left the country in March and returned four days later. Since then, there was no record of his departure from the Philippines.
Guevarra earlier warned persons coddling Lim, who has been indicted for conspiracy to trade in illegal drugs, that they will be prosecuted for obstruction of justice.
A bounty was also put up for any information that could lead to Lim’s arrest.
