Pictures of President Rodrigo Duterte and the Cebu-Based Businessmen and suspected Drug Lord Peter Lim are being shared on Facebook. The said pictures was posted on Facebook by the facebook fanpage named “Facts Against Ignorance” and it was inundated with negative reactions from the supporters of President Rody Duterte.

The poster said that Peter Lim is a contributor to Duterte campaign and now the President is paying his debt to the suspected drug lord. But according to the SOCE that President Duterte submitted to the Commission of Election, Peter Lim didn’t appear in the list of the donors.

Supporters of the president accused that the photo was Photoshopped to spread black propaganda against him. I voted for Du30 and it doesn't mean that if you have a picture taken with him you are protecting him.

 According to Inquirer, Lim and Duterte are “kumpare,” as they both stood as primary sponsors during a wedding at Shangri-La’s Mactan Island Resort and Spa in Lapu-Lapu City in Cebu province on June 25, according to Lim’s spokesperson, Dioscoro Fuentes Jr.

Fuentes called a news conference here on July 8 to deny that the businessman was the Peter Lim named by Mr. Duterte in an address on national television the day before as the one of the country’s top drug lords.

He said Mr. Duterte and Lim were among the principal sponsors at the wedding of Yuri Ofek, an Israeli expatriate who works as country manager of a local business outsourcing company, and Beatrice Borja.

Other principal sponsors included Sen. Cynthia Villar and her husband, former Sen. Manny Villar. Their son, Mark, is now the secretary of public works.
