Cambodia arrests 2 foreign nationals over allegedly trafficking narcotics

| @indiablooms | 22 Mar 2024, 05:48 pm

Cambodia has arrested a gang of two foreigners for possessing and trafficking illicit drugs, seizing almost 670 kg of narcotics, the country's Anti-Drug Department (ADP) said in a news release on Friday.

The two male-suspects were apprehended on Tuesday during raids on two condos here after a thorough probe.

The Southeast Asian country has no death sentence for a drug trafficker. Under its law, those found guilty of trafficking more than 80 grams of illicit drugs could be jailed for life.

According to the ADP, Cambodia nabbed 4,946 drug-related suspects, including more than 100 foreigners, in 2,047 cases from Jan. 1 to March 21, 2024, confiscating more than 2.8 tons of narcotics.

Most of the seized drugs were ketamine, crystal methamphetamine, methamphetamine tablets, heroin, ecstasy and cocaine.
