Man, 24, charged with human trafficking

Banteay Meanchey provincial court yesterday charged a 24-year-old man, An Sam Oeurn, with human trafficking after he was arrested last week on suspicion of attempting to smuggle two men across the border into Thailand, court officials said. “The man has been detained to wait for the court sentence,” said Ang Meavatey, the court’s director. An Sam Oeurn reportedly promised to find the men work once they crossed the border, police said last week. A trial date has not yet been set.
