GORDON VUONG
Gordon Vuong is a young Australian currently detained in Cambodia's Prey Sar prison, [Phnom Penh municipal prison]. It is about 20km out of Phnom Penh.

He has been sentenced by the court 13 years for drug related offences.

The Australian Embassy conducts regular consular visits to Gordon to ensure his basic human rights are maintained.

Due to the fact that Gordon is a minor [under 18], his family have given strict instructions to the Embassy that only family approved visitors will be allowed access to Gordon.

  • The Schoolboy - The Gordon Vuong Story
    A Sydney teenager faces years in a Cambodian Jail

    A 16 year-old schoolboy from Sydney caught trying to smuggle drugs out of a foreign country. Sentenced to 13 years in a squalid Asian prison cell swarming with feral animals. Sorry? Haven't heard about him?

    Three months ago when Gordon Vuong was caught trying to smuggle heroin out of Cambodia, the news barley registered on the national radar. The former Christian Brothers Lewisham schoolboy is the youngest of the 118 Australians in prison overseas. But unlike Schapelle Corby, The Bali None and now Michelle Leslie, Gordon Vuong is not a household name!

    Teen in Cambodian jail could come home
    A SYDNEY teenager convicted in Cambodia of drug smuggling could serve his 13-year jail term in Australia under a prisoner transfer deal expected to be signed next month.

    Chinese-Australian Gordon Vuong was 16 when he was arrested at Phnom Penh International Airport in January, 2005, with 2.1kg of heroin concealed on his body.

    He was sentenced by Phnom Penh Municipal Court in May last year to 13 years in prison.

    His family and friends say Vuong, a former student at Christian Brothers Lewisham in Sydney's inner-west, was coerced into acting as a drug mule by two adults, who have since been convicted of drug smuggling in Cambodia.

    Customs Minister Chris Ellison said today he hoped to sign a prisoner transfer deal with Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen when he visited Canberra next month.
