Anti-Drug Police Arrest 2 Americans, 1 Brit & 1 Cambodian Woman For Using & Trafficking Drugs (Meth)

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.

1,14 isnt a number its either
a failed attempt at putting 1.14 grams or
a failed attempt at putting 1,140 grams...

1, 14 Grams = 1 lot of 14 Grams confiscated
Hahaha, this even funnier now!

While I still think you're wrong (and after reading this, you will probably agree with my assumption too), but it makes a bit more sense now, at least.

Speaking of English lessons (and thanks for yours), I'm gonna learn you sumthin right now...

While both the US and the UK use a "." as a decimal mark/point, some countries use a "," (although I believe maybe the UK uses the "." too).

So both the US and the UK could use "1.14" when talking about "one point one four of something," there are some countries (maybe yours too?) that use "1,14" instead of "1.14" sometimes.

LL just lifted that off Koon Khmer, and the owner/writer is not a native English speaker.

So, you're the only one claiming it was 14 grams, but I see now it's because you misread LL's cut and paste from Koon Khmer.

Is that clear?

Yeah, I'm not sure which counties use the "," but I'm certain that what you are referring to was using the COMMA as a decimal mark, making it also read 1.14 grams, like it's reporter here on CEO and everywhere else.

HAHAHA! ! ! Yeah, I was rolling laughing! I really thought you were quoting yourself! :ROFL:

I get it now...
Spoiler:
But I swear, you're reading the other articles wrong; the original author was using that fucking comma as a decimal mark!

Khmer Times:

Three foreigners and a Cambodian woman were arrested and charged in Phnom Penh yesterday by the Phnom Penh Municipal Court for alleged drug trafficking and use, according to police.


The three foreign men were identified as Andrew John Sloman, 50, who is British, Safari Saari Ian Wood Berry, 40, an American, and Chaponot Cyril Guy, 46, who is French, according to Major Duong Vichetre, a police officer in the Interior Ministry’s anti-drug department.

At least two of them look like they do a lot more than 1.14 (1,14) grams of meth a day.

He got busted while living at Walkabout,he didnt pay his room for awhile,so Shane and the owner{Glenn}went up to throw his gear out,found a load of ice,and the cops were called. This was told to me by the Shane{RIP},who was manager at the time.
