Prison terms for drug traffickers upheld

The Court of Appeal yesterday upheld the prison terms of two Vietnamese women and a Cambodian man.

Presiding judge Phlong Samnang said that Cambodian Kim Hak, 36, and Vietnamese national Nguven Thilang, 30, would continue to serve their five-year sentences from 2011 for trafficking, and that accomplice and fellow Vietnamese national Traing Thimoeuy, 59, would complete her four-year term as well.

According to Samnang, the three were arrested by anti-drug police in Chamkarmon district’s Tumnop Teuk commune in Phnom Penh in September of 2011.

In the bust, police seized 12 packages of methamphetamine and other drug paraphernalia.

“Based on the hearing and the real proofs, they had really committed the offenses as accused,” Samnang said as he read the verdict.
