PM calls for fresh anti-drug efforts

To mark the International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, Prime Minister Hun Sen has called on officials to continue the fight against illegal drugs. “I would like to take this opportunity … to call on authorities to continue cracking down on illegal drugs and seriously punish anyone involved in the production and distribution of drugs,” the premier said in a statement on Saturday. He emphasised that officials themselves should not become involved in drug crimes, and that they should not hesitate to turn in any officials who are profiting from the drug trade.
