Taiwan drugs confession

Two Taiwanese men confessed in Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday that their attempt to smuggle heroin out of the capital was the result of a deal they struck at Naga Casino. Lui Kou Wen, 41, and Yang Chun, 24, were arrested in August 2008 after police found nearly 500 grams of heroin wrapped in plastic bags around each of the men’s thighs at Phnom Penh International Airport. They were charged with cross-border drug smuggling. Presiding Judge Duch Kimsorn said a verdict will be announced on November 17.
