The Makati City Regional Trial Court has issued a hold departure order for Cebu-based businessman Peter Lim.

“Finding the grounds relied upon by the prosecution to be impressed with merit, the Urgent Ex-Parte Motion for the Issuance of Hold Departure Order (HDO) against Peter Go Lim is hereby granted,” Makati RTC Branch 65 acting Presiding Judge Gina M. Bibat-Palamos said in an order released Friday.


“The Bureau of Immigration is hereby ordered to prevent or hold the departure from the country of accused Peter Go Lim,” read the court order.


Lim, together with self-confessed drug distributor Kerwin Espinosa, Marcelo Adorco, and Ruel Malindagan, is accused of violating Section 26 (B) in relation to Section 5, Article II (conspiracy to commit illegal drug trading) of Republic Act No. 9165, a non-bailable offense.

The court has already issued a warrant for their arrest.
