Lao ‘drug trafficker’ charged

An undercover police operation has led to the arrest of a Loatian man believed to have smuggled one kilogram of methamphetamines from Laos into Stung Treng province on Friday.

Major Nou Hour, chief of the provincial anti-drug police unit in Stung Treng, said that 51-year-old Kis Keoduong Champa was issued drug-related charges in the provincial court on Saturday.

“He was arrested by our provincial anti-drug police unit when he brought about a kilogram of drugs from his country to sell to our undercover police agents near the Cambodia-Laos border in Stung Treng’s Thala Barivat district,” Hour said yesterday.

“He was charged by the provincial court with drug possession, transporting and trafficking, and is now awaiting trial in prison.”

Major Nou Hour said that according to the Cambodian Anti-Drug Law, the Laotian national could face between five and 10 years in prison if found guilty.
