Another bust at airport for hidden meth

A Nigerian woman alleged to have smuggled 1.5 kilograms of methamphetamine through Phnom Penh International Airport was charged yesterday following her weekend arrest.

Tollin Onions Bosede, 34, was charged at Phnom Penh Municipal Court with international drug trafficking, said Major General Sok Chour, vice-director of the Interior Ministry’s anti-drug police.

“[Bosede] was arrested by our police at Phnom Penh International Airport on Sunday afternoon,” he said

“She was arrested when police checked her luggage and found a big package of drugs hidden inside clothes in her luggage.”

Early last month, 30-year-old Indian woman Judith Pudaite was charged after she was caught allegedly carrying 3.38 kilograms of meth into Siem Reap International Airport.

Less than two weeks before that, four Thai women were found guilty of smuggling more than eight kilograms of cocaine through Cambodia on their way from Ecuador and Ghana last August and sentenced to life.
