Australian drug smuggler sentenced to 23 years in Cambodian

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Yoshe and the story were the subject of a two-part "Australian Story" doco that aired last month.
Interesting and a bit easier to understand how it unfolded if you can get to see it. There was a fairly elaborate scam involving giving her a job importing art and textiles to Australia. The French woman was part of the entrapment, and Yoshe plainly unaware, hence the eventual submission by prosecutors as well as defence to reduce her sentence.

Wow!

I understand she was duped. However, it's FUNDAMENTAL you don't take a bag/package that is not yours across an international boarder... no matter what or how well you think you know the person who wants you to carry the bag.
You could be next.
