Chinese nationals tried for drug trafficking

Two Chinese nationals accused of trafficking illegal drugs totalling 1.5 kilograms are being tried by the Phnom Penh Municipal Court in a hearing that began yesterday.

Tu Wei Jun, 27, and Lin Zhi Long, 26, were arrested last year in possession of meth, heroin and marijuana in Prampi Makara after another trafficker tipped off police.

When arrested, Wei Jun was staying in a room rented from Zhi Long, who claims he had no knowledge of the drugs.

Defence lawyer Ouk Vandet asked the court to reduce Wei Jun’s punishment and drop the charges against Zhi Long.

Judge Kor Vandy said the verdict would be announced on September 12.
