A 16-year old Vietnamese boy saw his trial over drug trafficking charges from last year end yesterday in Phnom Penh.

Nguyen Chan Manh said in court yesterday that the drugs that were found on his motorbike belonged to his two friends and that in the past he had been a drug abuser but not a drug trafficker.
