Alleged smugglers still in hands of investigators

Three foreign nationals and a Cambodian woman arrested last week for allegedly attempting to smuggle more than 2.5 kilograms of cocaine through Phnom Penh International Airport remained in the hands of investigating judges for questioning as of last night. Soeung Nol, chief of the Ministry of Interior’s anti-drug police, said they smuggled the cocaine from Brazil to Cambodia.

The cocaine was allegedly found in a bag belonging to Macoy Mavill, a Filipino national, at the airport, where she was arrested. Her interrogation led police to arrest Michael Sunshine and Emmanuel Thankgod of Ghana, and Cambodian Meng Sinoun at Luxury World Hotel in Daun Penh district.

Defence lawyer Pheng Heng yesterday said the three were falsely accused. “They have known nothing about this, nor were they related to this case of drug trafficking.”
