• Frustrated murder case filed vs Cebu road rage suspect


    CEBU CITY: Police on Tuesday filed criminal charges for frustrated murder before the Cebu City Prosecutor’s Office against David Lim Jr. who was tagged in the road rage incident here at dawn Sunday.

    Supt. Ryan Devaras, Cebu City Police Office (CCPO)-Investigation and Detection Management Bureau (IDMB) chief, said they filed the frustrated murder case instead of frustrated homicide against Lim upon the request of the road rage victim Ephraim Nunal, a nurse.

    Lim surrendered to Chief Supt. Noli Taliño, Police Regional Office (PRO) 7 director, on Tuesday.

    Lim was taken to Cebu City Prosecutor’s Office under heavy guard at 4 p.m. on Tuesday. The case against him was assigned to Cebu City Assistant Prosecutor Maria Theresa Casino.

    Lim’s lawyer Orlando Salatandre Jr. said his client will not sign a waiver of detention so he could post bail and answer the case against him in court.

    Lim was taken at past 5 p.m. Tuesday to the CCPO holding cell in Camp Sotero Cabahug on Gorordo Avenue here where he will be detained until the inquest proceeding is completed and he can post bail for his temporary liberty. PNA

    1. Why only frustrated murder case against the perpetrator? What about the illegal possession of firearms charge? Is it because there was no gun surrendered? But even if there was no gun surrendered, the criminal act was undoubtedly committed by a gun. Charge him with illegal possession of firearms and it is up to him to prove that that is a legal firearm. If only to show these hot headed idiots who think that guns is the extension of their dicks, let justice lop it off including their balls.

    2. Majority of the rich Chinese children in the Philippines are VERY MEAN and ABUSIVE to the Filipino people. I remember the children of a prominent and rich Chinese children bragging of knowing PNP officials that they can do anything to the Filipinos.
      The video of this abusive David Lim Jr. just displays how arrogant and abusive he is because his family KNOWS Go and some PNP officials. I will pray that the victim Ephraim Nunal will NOT retract his charges and be bought by these ARROGANT Chinese. Also, I hope that the cops and the judges who handle this case should not be bought by the LIM family.
      For all Filipinos, is it about time to take action against these abusive Chinese? Do not wait for the worst since most of these Chinese male children even rape/raped Filipina housemaids. Where is the NPA? Why dont you give justice to these Filipino victims of these Chinese.
