Foreign drug traffickers face five years in jail

A 45-year-old Chinese national and a 39-year old Vietnamese national were sentenced to five years in jail and fined10 million riel each (about US$2,500) in Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday, over drug trafficking charges.

Presiding Judge Kor Vandy said that Huoy Vuysin, 45, and Chin Haynam, 39, were both charged with drug trafficking after being arrested on August 4 last year at a rental house in the Boeung Salang commune of Tuol Kork district.

He added that after their arrests, police confiscated a total of 94.5 grams of methamphetamine, a drug scale and other drug paraphernalia from their residence.

“Based on the hearing, the drugs confiscated and the testimony of the suspects, the court has found that these two foreign nationals are drug traffickers,” he said, adding that the evidence will be destroyed and the fines added to the state budget.
