Man to be charged for acting as Peter Lim’s security guard

THE man who accepted the subpoena for alleged drug trafficker Peter Lim will be charged for allegedly pretending he was a security guard, a police official said.

Police Regional Office-Central Visayas Director Jose Mario Espino said the Regional Civil Security Unit (RSU) 7 informed him that Antonio Rosellosa has no license as a security guard since last year.

Espino said that Rosellosa violated Republic Act 5487, or the Private Security Agency Law, which punishes a person who acts as a security guard without a license.

Last Aug. 1, Rosellosa said he was one of Lim’s security guards and accepted from the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) 7 personnel the subpoena ordering Lim to appear before the Department of Justice (DOJ) in Manila on Aug. 14 and 17 at 10 a.m., to answer the complaint.

The DOJ had ordered Lim to answer in a preliminary investigation for the violation of Section 26, Paragraph B, pertaining to conspiracy to sell drugs in Section 5 of Republic Act (RA) 9165, or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002. (KAL)
