Cambodian woman accused of smuggling

Embassy officials in Jakarta are conducting an investigation following the reported arrest of a Cambodian woman allegedly carrying 200g of methamphetamine in Indonesia’s West Java province.

Koy Kuong, spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, yesterday told the Post he has aware of the arrest and had ordered embassy officials to determine if she was a citizen.

The Jakarta Post reported late last week that officers from the Bandung Customs and Excise Office had foiled an attempt to smuggle some $31,000 worth of crystal meth through Husein Sastranegara International Airport in Bandung, West Java.

The news outlet said a 25-year-old Cambodian woman, who is three months' pregnant, carried out the alleged attempt. Bandung customs services and supervision head Jarot Jatnika said they were “alerted by her furtive movements”.
