Thais warned against smuggling drugs into Japan

Thai travellers have been warned of the dangers of smuggling illicit drugs into Japan, amid a “shocking” increase in the number of Thais arrested there for trafficking.

The Thai embassy in Japan said visitors should be aware of the harsh penalties for drug trafficking, and also warned travellers not to carry items into Japan for other people.

The embassy statement said the number of Thais arrested in Japan for drug trafficking “has shockingly, sharply increased”. The embassy did not provide details, other than saying “several dozen” were imprisoned there.
