Who is Peter Go? Davao bizman comes to Peter Lim’s aid anew in road rage saga
The family of suspected Visayan drug lord Peter Lim has found a direct line to Malacañang through Davao-based Cebuano businessman Peter Go.
Not only did Go helped facilitate Lim’s meeting with President Rodrigo Duterte last year, he also assisted in the surrender of the suspected drug lord’s nephew, who is implicated in a road rage incident.
According to information from Duterte’s camp, it was Go who called him namesake, Special Assistant to the President Christopher “Bong” Go, about the surrender feelers from the family of David Lim Jr.
The younger Lim is accused of shooting a nursing student because of a traffic altercation in Cebu City last March 19. The incident was caught on closed circuit television camera.
Go is not related to his namesake, nor does he know Lim’s family.
However, upon getting a call from Peter Go, Bong Go got in touch with Lim’s mother, Bebong, and urged her to surrender the suspect.
David Lim surrendered himself to the Police Regional Office 7 (Central Visayas) headquarters on Tuesday (March 21) at 2 a.m He was accompanied by his mother, two relatives and a lawyer.
Last year, it was Peter Lim who found himself in hot water after Duterte tagged him as part of the Chinese triad involved in the drug trade in the country.
Former jueteng whistleblower Sandra Cam said Lim asked for a meeting with Duterte with the help of a “businessman from Cebu,” ostensibly referring to Peter Go.
