Life terms upheld for two Thai drug mules

The Court of Appeal yesterday upheld the life sentences of two Thai drug mules, but reduced one of their fines so that each now has to pay 60 million riel ($15,000).

According to presiding judge Oum Sarith, defendants Pinwjansod Utsatee, 22, and her accomplice Hollaus Nanthiya, 28, were indeed guilty of smuggling nearly 5 kilograms of methamphetamine into Cambodia from Ghana in August 2012.

Pinwjansod was arrested at Phnom Penh International Airport when officials found the drugs stuffed in a small bag in her suitcase, and Hollaus was arrested later at a guesthouse when police learned that she intended to receive the drugs.
