HIV patient accused of trafficking narcotics

A VIETNAMESE woman living with HIV/AIDS was charged in Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday with the storage of methamphetamines.

Nguven Thi Chang, 20, was arrested at her home in the capital in January, Judge Heng Sok Na said.

Police at that time searched her home and seized more than half a gram of powdered methamphetamine and four tablets, along with drug scales and other paraphernalia.

Chang denied the accusation of drug trafficking, saying she had only fallen victim to drug use because of her debilitating disease.
