Four drug traffickers, including three women, were sentenced to prison and fined several thousand dollars yesterday.
Phnom Penh Municipal Court presiding judge Oeung Seang announced Eng La, 40, was sentenced to 10 years in prison. Tuy Phy, 43, and Him Kang 43, were both sentenced to 11 years.
All three were ordered to pay fines of US$5,500. Rith Reth was sentenced in absentia to serve 20 years in prison and pay a $7,000 fine.
The judge said the three women had been arrested during a raid in the capital’s Chamkarmon district in May that netted 498 grams of methamphetamine. Rith Reth escaped and remains on the run.
