Foreigners among five charged over drug trafficking

Siem Reap Provincial Court yesterday charged a Danish national, an Argentinian national and three Cambodians with drug use and trafficking.

Brigadier General Oum Mara, chief of the provincial anti-drug department, identified the accused as Gundel Sejr Donal, 41, a tourist from Denmark; Comerci Eric, 29, a tourist from Argentina; Kim Sal, 37; Thy Vuthea, 27; and Tan Chanthou, 30.

Brig Gen Mara said they were all charged with drug use and trafficking after they were arrested by provincial anti-drug police in Siem Reap city on Monday. They are currently in pre-trial detention, he added.

Captain Huoth Dara, a police officer working with Siem Reap city police, yesterday said they were previously suspected of drug use and selling drugs to foreign tourists in the province.

Cap Dara noted that they were arrested at about 6.30pm on Monday, after police raided a guesthouse in Svay Dangkum commune, where they were staying.

He said police monitored their activities for about one month before cracking down and arresting them on Monday.

Cap Dara noted that two of the Cambodian men worked as translators for the tourists, while the woman was a cook.

“They were arrested while they were smoking drugs inside the guesthouse room,” he said.
