Phnom Penh (FN), June 12 – Cambodian interior minister Sar Kheng vowed to completely stop drug distributions and usages in KTVs and clubs by 2019, speaking Wednesday in ceremony for the third mandate capital and provincial councilors to assume offices.

The minister urged police forces not to work for KTVs and clubs, which look like they are protecting the drug sites, while the ministry is drafting laws on such matter.

On 8 June, police arrested over 400 people in a drug raid in Phnom Penh’s Luxurious club. At least 100 found using drugs.
