Cambodia facing ‘scourge’ of drug trafficking
30 January 2019
(Phnom Penh Post/ANN) — Cambodia's Deputy Prime Minister and National Authority for Combating Drugs (NACD) president Ke Kim Yan on Tuesday said while Cambodia is not a drug-producing country, the scourge is trafficked through the Kingdom to third countries.

Kim Yan was speaking at a workshop at the Stung Treng Provincial Hall which covered the monitoring of drugs in the northeast and the implementation of a “No Drugs in Villages and Communes” scheme.

The workshop was attended by some 250 representatives of ministries and institutions, the deputy president and members of the NACD, the border provinces’ Drug Monitoring Committee and delegates from Laos, Thailand and Vietnam.

“Cambodia is not a drug-producing country, but drugs are trafficked across the nation .?.?. before heading to third countries,” Kim Yan was quoted as saying on the police website on Tuesday.

He said that, according to the NACD report, drugs are trafficked through the northeast provinces, especially Stung Treng and Preah Vihear, where they enter the country over the Laos border.

Kim Yan said the drugs are then transported to Thailand and Vietnam, with some being consumed in Cambodia at places such as tourist spots, clubs, guesthouses and slums.

He said this had an adverse effect on youths and is causing a loss of human resources for national economic development.

Stung Treng provincial drug monitoring committee director Mom Saroeun said on Tuesday that he was busy with the workshop and hence was unable to provide The Post with a comment. Saroeun is also the Stung Treng governor.
