In Brief: Taiwanese charged with drug-running

Two Taiwanese nationals were charged in Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Monday with cross-border drug trafficking after they were arrested at Phnom Penh International Airport. Mok Dara, head of Cambodia's anti-drug trafficking department at the Ministry of Interior, said 19-year-old Leang Chunvey and 36-year-old You Sujing were detained in separate incidents after being discovered with small amounts of unidentified illegal substances. "They claim they do not deserve the charges against them because they had the drugs for personal use only, but that's just their excuse. They must be punished according to Cambodian law."
