Accused dealer ‘King Kong’ faces court over drugs

Australian national Alan Rolf Jensen, also known as “King Kong”, had his day in court yesterday, some six months after being arrested and charged with distributing drugs to foreigners in the capital.

“He was a foreign drug distributor in Cambodia,” Phnom Penh Municipal Court judge Keo Mony said yesterday. “He always brought drugs … for sale to other foreign people at foreign bars or restaurants.”

Colonel Khen Sovann, deputy commander of Phnom Penh Municipal Military Police, said that Jensen, 49, was in possession of marijuana, methamphetamine and related paraphernalia when he was arrested in December.

“He was arrested when the municipal military police raided his rental house room, and while he was smoking marijuana,” he said.

Jensen asked for his charges to be dropped yesterday.

“The drugs that police found inside my room belonged to me, and I only bought them for my own use,” he said.

A verdict is due on July 8.
