The family of disgraced oknha Tan Senghak will be sent to the Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Friday, after anti-drug police took control of investigations and questioning the suspected drug dealers yesterday.
Police said tycoon Senghak, who allegedly doubles as a well-connected dealer, had been smoking methamphetamine only minutes before the bust.
In the raid on the Sen Sok house, officials uncovered an assortment of drugs including crystal methamphetamine and a large bag of cocaine.
Along with the drugs, police seized $2,500, 10 bullets, a large package of pipes, jewellery, two passports, nine mobile phones, four cameras, nine motorbikes and a car.
Kieu Saman, director of the anti-drugs department at the Ministry of Interior, said yesterday Senghak could not be sent to the court on Thursday as scheduled following two days of questioning because of a lack of completed legal documents.
“The suspects will be sent to court on Friday due to too much legal work to deal with this case,” Saman said.
