Family money funnelled into personal drug fund
He may not be his brother’s keeper, but a Phnom Penh resident had every intention of at least being his brother’s money’s keeper on Sunday. Police in Meanchey district said they picked up the 28-year-old hothead while he was attempting to score drugs. A quick interrogation found the funds had been siphoned from his sibling, though in an instance of true brotherly love, to protect him, the sibling had not filed a complaint. All the same, the young addict is headed for court. Koh Santepheap
