Phnom Penh (FN), June 26 - Minister of Interior Sar Kheng asked Minister of Justice Ang Vong Vathana to freeze assets of drug and human traffickers, addressing Wednesday, June 26, on the occasion of International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, at Diamond Island Exhibition and Convention Center, Phnom Penh.

“Drug destroys our human resources and the future of our nation. Drug also influences users to be terrorists or thieves or conduct crimes,” said Sar Kheng.

"Money made from selling drugs is Black Money, thus affects our capital circulation,” he added.

Regarding human traffickers, their acts violate the human rights. Also, the money they made can be used to finance terrorists, according to the minister.

He appealed to justice ministry to freeze drug and human traffickers’ assets, including money, real estates, and vehicles.
