Kahit sino ka man! Aguirre says David Lim should face charges
So what if Cebu road rage suspect David Lim Jr. is alleged drug lord Peter Lim’s nephew?
Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II reckoned that David must face still the charges that will be lodged against him.
“If he committed the act attributed to him by the victim, then he should squarely face the charges against him,” Aguirre said in a statement Tuesday (March 20).
Lim has been identified as the person who shot nurse Ephraim Nunal Sunday morning (March 19) during a traffic altercation in Cebu City.
So big disturbing was the news that even Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmena was forced to lead a raid on the suspect’s house without a warrant after claiming that police refused to act without one.
The judge had also refused to issue an arrest warrant.
Both Osmena and Cebu City police chief Sr. Supt. Joel Doria earlier advised David to surrender if he does not want to get hurt. He was also told not to provoke police into a gunfight.
However, it took Special Assistant to the President Chritopher “Bong” Go to convince the David’s family to turn in the suspect to the Central Visayas police on Tuesday (March 21) morning.
