Married couple caged after drugs conviction

A Cambodian man and his Vietnamese wife were sentenced to three years in prison and fined four million riels (about US$1,000) each after being convicted of drug trafficking yesterday at the Phnom Penh Municipal Court. Ek Sinoeun, 29, and his wife Nguven Yai Yee, 24, were arrested at their house in Phnom Penh’s Chamkarmon district on April 26 this year. Police said they confiscated 45 pills of amphetamines from the residence. The married couple denied the charges of trafficking yesterday and claimed the drugs police confiscated were only for personal consumption.
