Here are the compiled photos of Duterte with Peter Lim

Published

on

President Rodrigo Duterte revealed a diagram of drug syndicates in the Philippines and one of the names he mentioned as part of the drug triad is Peter Lim. Since it was reported at first that Lim was out of the country when Duterte made the revelation on July 7, the President even issued a threat against him, telling him he will die the moment he arrives in NAIA.

But before the Cebuano-Chinese businessman Peter Lim met with Duterte in Davao City on July 16 and even before Duterte mentioned Lim as one of the suspected leaders of the drug triad in the country, they met on two occasions in Cebu.

Duterte and Lim’s first meeting was on June 8, 2016, during the President’s victory party at Level (8) ADNAMA, Mandaue City Reclamation Area, headquarters of the Adnama Mining Resources Inc. (AMRI). It was hosted for him by Adnama Group owner Fernando “Ding” Borja. They were pictured here, as posted by Cebuano radio/TV newscaster Leo Lastimosa, on his Facebook page.

 

Their second meeting was as kumpares, as they were both principal sponsors during the wedding of Beatriz Borja and Israeli expat Yuri Ofek last June 25, 2016. Borja is the daughter of the previously mentioned Ding Borja of the Adnama Group. The wedding was held at the Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort and Spa. They were also pictured in their barong wear.

If you read through the comments, there were several Duterte supporters claiming that the photos were edited. But Lim’s spokesperson, Dioscoro Fuentes Jr., confirmed that both Duterte and Lim were indeed present at the wedding, according to a Philippine Daily Inquirer report, so no edits here.

Both events and Duterte’s attendance in both, involving mining company owner Borja, were also covered by this Rappler report on June 28, although the Peter Lim association was not yet uncovered at this moment.

Some people defended Duterte by saying that this Peter Lim who met with Duterte could not be the drug lord that the President named during his drug triad revelation since there are around 400 Peter Lims in Cebu and around 4,000 people of the same name in the country. However, Lim voluntarily said that he was the same Peter Lim who was the subject of a congressional inquiry in 2001 and 2006.

This SunStar report also showed the same Lim photographed with Duterte and his brother, Wellington, during a congressional inquiry in 2006.

And when Duterte and Lim finally met in Davao City for the third time, with Lim defending himself against Duterte’s accusations, some Filipinos cried discrimination in the way a wealthy suspected drug lord and the poor suspected drug pushers and drug users are being treated. They argued that while poor suspects were killed, the rich ones were even able to meet face to face with the President.

Comments on Duterte with Peter Lim

As this Peter Lim saga unfolds, we will learn more about whether Lim is indeed the drug lord that Duterte was referring to as part of the drug triad in the country.  That is, if Lim follows Duterte’s advice to submit himself to an investigation.

Facebook user Khary Woulfe posted some tips on how you can hit back at the group’s threats.

Before visiting the page, make sure to do “Disable COOKIES, JAVASCRIPT and POP-UPS from your browser before clicking the link,” Woulfe said.

He also referred netizens to a safer version of the list, similar to the one posted by the Superficial Gazette. You can access it here.

As for taking your name, Woulfe suggested these tips:

  1. Verify your Facebook with your phone number. This is required to change your FB username.
  2. Change your username everyday (or more frequent than that.) The Messenger change username option is the fastest way to do so. (Otherwise, go to https://facebook.com/username if you’re on computer or on web version of Facebook.)
    This way, your old Facebook address included on their lists will point instead to a 404 (Page Not Found) page.

“However, if you haven’t provided your username beforehand and your link has been listed as https://facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000xxxx, the link would still point to your profile right after changing your username. If this is your case, it is better to deactivate your account for the mean time,” he added.

 

Woulfe also gave tips on how to take down the website hosting DCW’s list.

Here are the steps:

  1. Go to https://www.cloudflare.com/abuse/form and select Violent Threats.
  2. Fill in Full name with any name that isn’t your true name.
  3. Fill in your email address.
  4. Fill in Evidence URL with https://profile.du30cw.org/wos.
  5. Fill in Logs with:
    The link provided points to a website hosted on CloudFlare. The “Wall of Shame” is actually a list of Facebook profiles with links pointing to profiles that they are going to steal infos and photos. They also send death threats and other forms of black mails. I believe such kind of activity is illegal. My family and friends are included in the list. Please don’t allow your services to be instrumental to such kind of illegal activites. Thank you.
  6. Click Submit.

Superficial Gazette urges people and FB pages in DCW’s ‘Wall of Shame’ to be more cautious but not be silenced

Published

on

Superficial Gazette of the Republic of the Philippines (SGRP) warned the private individuals and Facebook pages that are included in the list monitored by a group of “hackers” supporting Duterte, known as “Duterte Cyber Warriors (DCW),” to secure their accounts against cyber threats.

SGRP also provided a version of DCW’s list of potential cyber tokhang targets, called “Wall of Shame,” that is safer and easier to access, the link of which can be found here.

As of February 3, at around 3:30 pm, the list contained more than 2,250 names and FB pages, some of which are the Superficial Gazette, Madam Claudia, Change Scamming, Silent No More, Resbak Operatives, Jim Paredes, Carlos Celdran.

Even Meme Buster was included in the list at #615 after receiving three reports.

DCW Wall of Shame

For SGRP, the list should be viewed as a compilation of “names of pages and people that are worth following.”

Their advice for those who found their name in DCW’s Wall of Shame?

“Secure your accounts, change your passwords, and maybe your username. But do not be silenced – for you to stop opposing this government’s crimes is exactly what they want,” SGRP wrote.

One commenter noted how coming up with the list seemed like how the Nazis identified their “enemies” then and rounded them up.

DCW Wall of Shame

Another person on the list just laughed it off, feeling flattered he was in the list of people who are also “fighting for truth.”

DCW Wall of Shame

Someone also commented on how this action is a “subtle way of suppressing freedom of expression” of the opposition.

DCW Wall of Shame

Earlier, Superficial Gazette also posted a screenshot of how DCW posted the link of the Facebook profile of a certain individual while urging their followers to conduct a “cyber tokhang” on that person and gather the address of the target’s known relatives and friends.

In December last year, SGRP wrote about how Madam Claudia, a page critical of the Duterte administration, was removed from Facebook after being mass-reported. Despite not violating any of the FB community’s standards, the FB moderators still removed the page, leading SGRP to conclude that some of FB Philippines’ administrators may have been biased.

This is also the reason why Superficial Gazette hit the Duterte’s supporters’ “#defendFREEspeech” campaign because other supporters were also targeting Duterte’s critics with cyber tokhang, as initiated by Mr. Riyoh and Duterte Cyber Warriors, public shaming, and other kinds of attacks.
