Two Charged Over Ketamine Found Inside Computers, Factory
March 13, 2017

The owner of a Sihanoukville pharmaceuticals factory and one of his employees were provisionally charged with drug trafficking on Sunday after ketamine was found inside computers being shipped from the company, with more drugs later found at the factory, police said.

Lin Guo, a 28-year-old Chinese national and CEO of the Health Phat Pharma company, was arrested at the firm’s factory in the Sihanoukville special economic zone on Wednesday, said In Song, an officer at the Interior Ministry’s anti-drug department. He has been detained along with Cambodian employee Yorn Pov, 34, at the department since last week and would appear at the Phnom Penh Municipal Court today, Mr. Song said.

About 92 grams of the drug—used medically as an anesthetic and recreationally as a hallucinogen—was found last Monday inside more than 1,000 sealed bottles labeled with the company’s name inside the computers, which were being shipped to Malaysia through Phnom Penh International Airport, he said.

The bottle labels led police to the company’s factory, where nearly 1 kg of ketamine was found, he said. Under questioning, Mr. Lin confessed to exporting the drugs without a license, claiming that a customer in Malaysia urgently needed the product, Mr. Song said...

Had no problem buying in the pharmacy in Sihanoukville thru march 5 2017 though had to pay $40 per vial.
Found a pharmacy in Phnom Penh selling it for $30 per vial. After having wasted $20 by buying 6 for
$200 from Angkor Chey pharmacy which is the only place i used to know of in Phnom Penh till i asked at another pharmacy intersection streets 13 and 148 2 days before i left which sells it for $30 per vial but only bought 4 from there march 10, 2017. It could be those pharmacies were/are getting it direct from the manufacturers in Germany and had nothing to do with this bust ? Perhaps this bust was for someplace converting the liquid to solid powder form ? Would like to know for sure though.

i was told you can get it for under 10 bucks. that's quite a mark up for ignorance or greed - you decide.
