Six students jailed for drug offences

The Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday sentenced  six students, including two 15-year-old girls, to prison terms of one to two years    for drug-related offences. Presiding Judge Kor Vandy jailed 20-year-old So Seng Chhay and 18-year-old Thai Visal for two years for drug trafficking and drug use,  while 17-year-old Sok Phanha and 18-year-old Khun Veasna received one-year sentences for the same offences. Two girls, both 15, were sentenced to one year in jail for being accomplices. Kor Vandy said  Sok Phanha and Khun Veasna had been arrested in Tuol Kork district in February in possession of five grams of yama. Following a tip-off from the pair, police later arrested So Seng Chhay, Thai Visal and the two girls at a guesthouse in Meanchey district, confiscating 20 methamphetamine tablets along with drug paraphenalia, he said.
