Dane faces 20 years or drug smuggling

Authorities have charged a Danish woman who allegedly tried to mail

thousands of over-the-counter painkillers out of Cambodia with drug

smuggling, a judge said on April 11. Axelexen Johanne Vinther, 45, was

arrested at a post office in the Phnom Penh on April 9 as she tried to

send 10,761 tablets containing codeine in packages to the United States

and Canada, said security official Chhay Sinarith. The pills are

readily available in Phnom Penh, but codeine is a restricted drug in

most Western countries. “I have charged her with drugs trafficking,”

said Phnom Penh Municipal Court judge Chan Sinath. Vinther faces 20

years in prison if convicted. (AFP)
