Six tried over meth trafficking

Six Cambodian men were tried in the capital yesterday for drug trafficking, after cops seized half a kilogram of methamphetamine during a raid on a rental house in October last year.

No Rorinvann, 19; Ry Soulsupply, 21; Abdul Rozeth, 20; Matt Roza, 24; Chea Zulkiphkly, 21; and Sem Sambo, 31, were arrested in Meanchey district on October 19, according to presiding judge Sous Sam Ath.

“They were arrested when police raided their rental house and while they were using drugs,” he said.

Hy Narin, a police chief in Meanchey district, said yesterday that the six were sought after by authorities for “many months” before their arrest.

Authorities seized 35 packages of methamphetamine and two drug scales, he added.

The six men admitted to being drug users in court yesterday but denied being drug traffickers. “We bought the seized drugs for our own use,” Abdul Rozeth said.
