A Malaysian Victim of a Drug Syndicate is Stuck in Cambodian Prison – Bring Him Back!

 In 2016, Hemakavin s/o Karthigesu, who was 19 years old at the time, was arrested in Cambodia for drug trafficking. He was sentenced to 25 years in prison. But was the evidence sufficient? Details that have emerged indicate that Hemakavin could’ve been a pawn that was duped to do their dirty work by a large syndicate. 

It’s been 7 years since Hemakavin’s arrest. His dad Karthigesu has appealed to the Malaysian government to bring back his 26-year-old son who is being imprisoned in Cambodia. 

Question is, how did this happen? Where is the justice?
