Drug dealers sentenced

Two Vietnamese nationals were convicted yesterday by the Phnom Penh Municipal Court on drug dealing charges and sentenced to two years in prison.

Judge Kor Vandy said that Vann Heng, 39, and his 27-year-old female accomplice Nguyen Thi Huy, also known as Heng Sreymom, had been charged with dealing drugs in the capital’s Chamkarmon district following their April 20 arrest and the seizure of 3.87 grams of powdered meth and drug paraphernalia.

“The court sentences them to two years in prison and a fine of 4 million riel [about $1,000] each,” said Vandy.

Separately, a 35-year old Laotian man named Sith Vy was arrested on Monday morning for allegedly smuggling “a big package of drugs containing powdered white methamphetamines weighing more than one kilogram” from Laos in Ratanakkiri’s Veun Sai district, according to Colonel Vann Sangvath, chief of provincial anti-drug police.

Two days prior to Vy’s arrest, Sangvath said police seized seven packages of methamphetamine, for a total of 1,400 tablets, as well as two mobile phones from a 34-year-old Laotian male suspect, Souna Lak.
