PP Appeal Court dismisses jailed for life Belgian drug smuggler’s bail request


Recommended Posts

Phnom Penh Court of Appeal yesterday denied an application for bail by a Belgian man jailed for life by the lower court in 2018 for allegedly transporting more than one kilogramme of cocaine from Brazil to Cambodia at the Phnom Penh International Airport. Presiding Judge Sin Visal identified the convict as Tanguy Eddie J. Taller, 37, a freelance designer.


Judge Visal said that Tanguy was sentenced on December 18, 2018 by the Phnom Penh Municipal Court to life in prison. He was charged with “drug transport and trafficking” under Article 40 of Cambodian Law on Drug Control. He said that Tanguy appealed this to the Phnom Penh Court of Appeal which upheld his sentence on April 6 last year. He filed an appeal with the Supreme Court.


Judge Visal said pending the final hearing for his case at the Supreme Court, Tanguy had asked the Appeal Court to grant him bail. “Based on the hearing and after the judges’ council at Phnom Penh Municipal Court has properly inspected all the related documents in case, the Appeal Court’s judge council has considered that the rulings made by Phnom Penh Municipal Court and the Appeal Court dated April 6, 2020 were right and made in accordance with the laws,” Judge Visal read the verdict yesterday.
