A French man and two women—a Cambodian and a Thai—were sent to court yesterday by Preah Sihanouk provincial military police for alleged involvement in drug trafficking.

Preah Sihanouk provincial military police deputy commander Heng Bunty said Frenchman Denis Michel Doniel, 50, and his accomplices Ly Srey Aun, 19, and Vi Lachha, 36, had been apprehended on Tuesday at a house in Preah Sihanouk city.

Ly Srey Aun was a villager from Srah Chak commune in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district, he said.

The suspects’ arrest had been ordered by deputy Preah Sihanouk provincial court prosecutor You Tith Vathanak, he said.
