Charges in drug cases

Phnom Penh Municipal Court charged three of 19 suspects arrested in drug raids last week with drug distribution, releasing 16 yesterday.

Im Bunny, police official for the Phnom Penh municipal police force, said 16 of the 19 people arrested last week in connection with drugs use and distribution were released after they were interrogated by the court and found only to be users. They agreed to each pay 80,000 riel (US $20) to the court and promised not to use drugs again.

The three men charged were part of a raid on a house on Saturday carried out by mixed police forces in Sen Sok district.

Chea Meth, vice-prosecutor of the Phnom Penh Municipal Court, said the court released 16 because they were victim of drugs.
