Court Sentences Three Drug Dealers to Death


The Vientiane People’s Court recently sentenced three people to death after they were arrested in connection with a drug deal involving 132,000 amphetamine pills, the Khuamsangob newspaper reported yesterday.

The three were named as Ms Maychualee, 26, of Taothan village in Phonhong district, Vientiane province; Mr. Touveu, 35, of Xiengda village, Xaysettha district; and Mr. Yerveu, 21, of Thongkang village, Sisattanak district. Mr. Touveu said he bought the pills from a Thai national and sold them to Ms Maychualee. He told Mr. Yerveu
to pick her up and go to a hotel to collect the money and wait for him there. However, when Mr. Touveu arrived at the hotel he was arrested with the pills in his possession. Police then raided his house and found more drugs there.
