Drug case ends for Vietnamese minor

A 16-year old Vietnamese boy saw his trial over drug trafficking charges from last year end yesterday in Phnom Penh. Nguyen Chan Manh, 16, was arrested and charged in June last year in Meanchey district’s Chbar Ampov II commune while driving a motorbike and carrying two packages of 30 yama pills, Presiding judge of the Phnom Penh Municipal Court Chea Sok Heang said yesterday. Nguyen Chan Manh said in court yesterday that the drugs that were found on his motorbike belonged to his two friends and that in the past he had been a drug abuser but not a drug trafficker. Chea Sok Heang added that the verdict would be announced on Friday.
