Meth trafficker given 20-year jail sentence

A man was sentenced at the Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday to more than 20 years in prison for attempting to smuggle drugs into Australia.

Judge Duch Kimsorn sentenced Sophat Monimesa, 43, to 26 years in prison and fined him 50 million riels (US$12,500).

He was arrested last year after a shipment company found two kilograms of methamphetamines concealed in clothes and bags that he was attempting to ship to Cambodia.
