Court clears Peter Lim nephew in road rage case
The Cebu City Regional Trial Court (RTC) has dismissed the frustrated homicide case against road rage suspect David Lim, Jr., the nephew of alleged drug lord and President Rodrigo Duterte’s wedding cosponsor Peter Lim.
Branch 5 Judge Ricky Jones Macabaya cited the failure of complainant Ephraim Nuñal to attend the proceedings in dismissing the case.
Lim shot Nuñal during a traffic altercation along F. Sotto Street in Barangay Kamputhaw on March 19, 2017. It became viral on social media after the incident was caught on the dashboard camera of a nearby car.
Lim’s possession of illegal ammunition case, however, remains pending before the sala of Branch 9 Judge Alexander Acosta.
