Nigerian Woman Busted Smuggling Meth into Cambodia; 25 Years

Sucks to be her.

The Phnom Penh Municipal Court sentenced a Nigerian woman to 25 years in prison Wednesday for attempting to smuggle methamphetamine into the country.

Collin Seniola Bosede, 36, was arrested in August with 1.5 kg of the drug in her suitcase at Phnom Penh International Airport.

Ms. Bosede maintained during her trial that a man in Qatar had asked her to transport a computer to Cambodia and that she was unaware that drugs were stashed inside it.

“I did not know. I did not know,” she said at court Wednesday, weeping.

“I do not understand why the court convicted me to 25 years in jail and I will die,” said Ms. Bosede. “If I knew the computer had drugs I would not have taken it.”

Presiding Judge Suos Sam Ath told Ms. Bosede that she has the right to file an appeal of the verdict within the next 30 days.

Leaving court, Ms. Bosede declined to talk to a reporter when asked if she would appeal her conviction.

Whilst I don't usually make fun of the less fortunate, I have to say that it made me laugh that I read that she's called Collin.

Seems rather odd that anyone would smuggle meth IN to Cambodia anywhere other than Vietnam.

Might as well throw it out there. A few of the wealthiest people in this country are drug lords.
