The Department of Justice (DOJ) said on Monday that Peter Lim had been included on the Bureau of Immigration’s watch list.

Lim has been the subject of an investigation by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) after his name was tagged as a drug lord by President Rodrigo Duterte.


The Immigration Lookout Bulletin Order (ILBO) on Lim was issued July 11, 2017, according to Justice Undersecretary Erickson Balmes.

Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre issued the ILBO at the request of the Philippine National Police (PNP) through Police Superintendent Richard Verceles, officer-in-charge of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group Major Crimes investigation unit.


Aside from Lim, subject of the same ILBO are Rolan “Kerwin” Espinosa, convicted drug lord Peter Co, a certain Marcelo L. Adorco, Max Miro, Lovely Adam Impal, Ruel Mangalindan and Jun Pepito.

“This has reference to the letter dated July 5, 2017 of Police Superintendent Richard Verceles requesting the issuance of a look-out bulletin order against Peter Go Lim alias ‘Jaguar,’ Rolan ‘Kerwin’ Espinosa, Peter Co, Marcelo L. Adorco, Max Miro, Lovely Adam Impal, Ruel Malindangan and Jun Pepito, in connection with the cases of Section 26 (b) in relation to Section 5 (Sale, Trading, Administration, Dispensation, Delivery, Distribution and Transportation of Dangerous Drugs and or Controlled Precursors and Essential Chemicals) of Republic Act No.9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act filed against said individuals before the National Prosecution Service of this Department,” stated the order signed by Aguirre.

“In view of the gravity of the offense filed against the above-mentioned individuals, there is likelihood that they might leave the country to place themselves beyond the reach of the lawful processes of the concern offices,” it added.

The DOJ also provided the NBI a copy of the order.

The PNP said they were facing a case for violation of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act specifically for trading, sale, administration, dispensation and distribution of illegal drugs.

The DOJ has yet to state the status of the case and where it was filed. CBB
