Hope for jailed youth

Seventeen-year-old Sydney native Gordon Vuong, serving 13 years in Prey Sar prison

for attempting to smuggle 2.1 kg of heroin to Australia in January 2005, may have

a chance to get home early, an Australian newspaper has reported.

Cambodia has notified Australia that it is willing to enter into a prisoner-exchange

treaty.

Relatives and supporters say Vuong was coerced into the drug run and are appealing

for a reduced sentence. Vuong may still have to wait years in jail until the treaty

is signed.
