Dutch police have arrested the alleged leader of a large Asian drug syndicate who is listed as one of the world's most-wanted fugitives and has been compared to Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman.
The alleged meth dealer, who is believed to be responsible for up to 70 percent of all narcotics that enter Australia, was reportedly taken from a plane in the Netherlands after an Interpol request for his arrest was issued by Australian Federal Police. He was released in 2006, and in later years, was said to be moving between Macau, Hong Kong and Taiwan. After release from an OH prison in 2006, he found his way back to Asia, where police allege he led the transformation of the region's $70 billion annual drug trade. While living in secret, however, he attended lavish parties and even lost $85 million at a casino in Macao in a single night.
Authorities also refer to the syndicate as Sam Gor - or Brother Number Three in Cantonese - after one of Mr Tse's nicknames, Reuters reported at the time.
Police and analysts said the syndicate drove a rapid expansion of crystal-methamphetamine trafficking in the region, which increased fourfold in the five years to 2019.
The publication also reports that suspected members of Tse's crime organization may have high level links to governments across Asia, having invested in large infrastructure ventures under the Chinese Communist Party's Belt and Road Scheme, a massive economic project that aims to build trade and transport links from East Asia to Europe.
Tse Chi Lop has been likened to Mexico's El Chapo due to his crimes and the police tracked the drug lord for over a decade. No charges have been revealed.
The group has "been connected with or directly involved in at least 13 cases" of drug trafficking since January 2015, the documents showed.
"Tse Chi Lop is in the league of El Chapo or maybe Pablo Escobar", Jeremy Douglas, South-East Asia and Pacific representative for the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, told Reuters in 2019, referring to two of Latin America's most notorious drug lords. According to police sources and the UNODC, with the exception of a few countries, the trafficking of illicit substances has been largely unaffected by the COVID-19 pandemic in the Asia-Pacific, unlike other regions.
