Three traffickers given 20-plus years in prison

The Phnom Penh Municipal Court had sentenced two Cambodians and a Vietnamese to prison terms ranging from 20 to 30 years on drug-trafficking charges, Judge Kor Vandy said yesterday.

Vietnamese national Danh Yanleang, 35, was sentenced to 30 years in prison and fined 80 million riel; Sok Ly, 32, received 25 years and a 60-million-riel fine; and Tang Bu, 45, received 20 years and a 40-million-riel fine.

The three were arrested last March with 1.2 kilograms of yama in a sting at the Nana Hotel, in the capital’s Phsar Thmey 3 commune, in Daun Penh district. In court, Sok Ly confessed to acting as a delivery person, saying she had been promised $200 but was arrested before being paid.
