A Cambodian court on Tuesday, May 8, indicted a Nigerian and Romania of cross-outskirt tranquilize carrying, and sentenced them two to life in jail.
Romanian man Adrian-Calin Varadi, 40, was gotten on Aug. 14, 2016 when he touched base at the Phnom Penh International Airport from Brazil with 4.96 kg of cocaine covered up in his baggage.
Nigerian man Chukwuemeka Ibe, 35, was captured soon thereafter when he held up at his lodging space to get the medications to take them to neighboring Thailand.
The pair are accused of “illicitly transporting the medications” under the nation’s Drug Law, said a decision perused by Phnom Penh Municipal Court’s Presiding Judge Im Vannak.
“The court chooses to sentence each of them to life in jail and to fine them 40 million riel (10,000 U.S. dollars) each,” the decision said.
Amid a trial a month ago, Varadi admitted to the wrongdoing, yet Ibe denied the charge, guaranteeing that he didn’t know the bundle he expected to get was conveying drug.
