Aside from Lim, also ordered to respond to the complaint filed by the PNP-CIDG are Rolan “Kerwin” Espinosa, convicted drug lord Peter Co, Marcelo Adorco, Max Miro and Lovely Impal. They are facing a complaint for violation of Section 26 (b) of RA 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act.

A check on the records of the complaint stated that the preliminary investigation is set on Aug. 14, 2017. The respondents were required to appear before Assistant State Prosecutors Aristotle Reyes and John Michael Humarang.
All the respondents had been included in the Bureau of Immigration’s Lookout Bulletin Order (ILBO). JPV
