Two men suspected of drug trafficking were sent to the Stung Treng Provincial Court yesterday after being arrested in possession of just under 6,000 methamphetamine pills on Monday, police said.

Provincial anti-drug office director Nuo Hour said the suspects had been intercepted by police at a ferry port in O’Svay commune on Monday night.

“We are preparing legal documents to bring the suspects to trial,” he said.

He added that the two men had told police the drugs had been imported from Laos but refused to reveal the name of their supplier.
