Narcotics Charges: Woman held in Thailand gets lawyer

Narcotics Charges
CAMBODIAN consular officials in Thailand’s Sa Kaeo province yesterday found a lawyer to represent a woman arrested earlier this week on suspicion of drug trafficking.

On Sunday, Thai officials arrested 20-year-old Lay Dav along with her 3-year-old daughter and her 40-year-old mother-in-law, said Koy Kuong, spokesman for the Cambodian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The officials said they had found methamphetamine pills on Lay Dav when the group was nabbed.

Koy Kuong said Lay Dav’s daughter and mother-in-law were released shortly after being arrested, but that Lay Dav had been transferred to a prison in Sa Kaeo province after being charged with drug trafficking. “She is in detention temporarily awaiting trial,” Koy Kuong said, and added that he did not know when a hearing would be scheduled in the case.

On July 7, Thai authorities arrested Suon Veasna, 32, after finding him in possession of six methamphetamine pills. He, too, is awaiting trial.
