Two Malaysian drug traffickers were jailed for 25 years each on Friday for bringing more than two kilos of cocaine into Cambodia from Peru.


Mohamad Rizduan Binramly, 27, and Hemkavin Karthig Su, 26, were convicted of trafficking the drug after being arrested at Phnom Penh International Airport in 2016.

Presiding Judge Ros Piseth said Interior Ministry anti-drug police inspected them and found the cocaine.

During their trial last month, both denied being traffickers but confessed to bringing the drug in return for payment.

They said they were offered $10,000 by an unidentified Nigerian man in Peru to bring the cocaine to an unidentified man in Hong Kong, but had not received the money.

They said they had brought the cocaine through Brazil, Qatar and Vietnam to Cambodia. They planned to transfer it to Hong Kong but were arrested in Cambodia.
