Nigerian sentenced to 27 years imprisonment in Cambodia

23 year old Precious Chineme
Nwoko (pictured above) has been
sentenced to 27 years
imprisonment by a Cambodian
Court for drug trafficking in
Police sources say Nwoko was a
ringleader in a heroin smuggling
cartel in Cambodia. He was
arrested last month for handing
a backpack containing 2.2 kilos
(4.8 pounds) of heroin to two
women, 41year old Australian
Yoshe Ann Taylor and 19 year old
French Charlene Savarino, for
onward transportation to an
unidentified man in Australia.
Both women were however
caught and arrested.
At their trial last month, it was
discovered that 19 year old
Savarino was Nwoko's girlfriend
and they worked closely in
smuggling heroin. 41 year old
Taylor had also previously helped
to smuggle heroin using the
Judge Kor Vandy at Phnom Penh
Municipal Court who presided
over their case today said Nwoko
and the two women were guilty
of 'cross-border smuggling of
illegal drugs and thereafter
sentenced Nwoko's 19year old
girlfriend Savarino to 25 years in
jail, while 41 year old Taylor was
handed 23 years. They all denied
the drug belonged to them.
