Malaysia seizes record haul of crystal meth worth $35m

KUALA LUMPUR - Malaysia’s maritime agency said on Sunday it had seized more than two tonnes of crystal methamphetamine worth 105.9 million ringgit ($35 million) from a boat off the country’s west coast, its largest-ever haul of the drug.

Malaysia has made several record busts of crystal meth in recent years. Authorities have said the intercepted shipments were part of a multibillion-dollar illicit drug trade that stretches across Australia, Southeast Asia and China.

The latest discovery came on Wednesday (Dec 9) when a Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) patrol encountered a recreational boat moving suspiciously off Penang island, MMEA Director-General Mohamad Zubil Mat Som said in a statement.

A chase ensued when the boat’s lone occupant, a 26-year-old Malaysian man, refused orders to stop.

He then attempted to escape by jumping into the water but was later arrested, Mohamad Zubil said.

Officials inspecting the boat found 130 sacks containing 2,118 kg (2.12 tonnes) of crystal methamphetamine disguised as packets of Chinese tea.

The origin and destination of the drugs are still under investigation. The tea packaging, though, was similar to that found in previous shipments suspected to have come from Myanmar, Mohamad Zubil told Reuters.

“This is the biggest seizure in MMEA’s 15-year history,” he said.

Crystal methamphetamine is a highly addictive synthetic drug also known as speed, shabu and yaba.

“As big as two-plus tonnes is - and it’s massive - the syndicates that run the drug trade in Asia can easily replace shipments like this,” said Jeremy Douglas, Southeast Asian regional representative for the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.

“The region needs a forward looking strategy that addresses root causes if they ever hope to get ahead of the situation.”.

A Chinese-born alleged drug kingpin accused of presiding over a multi-billion dollar narcotics operation has been arrested by Dutch authorities.

Canadian national Tse Chi Lop was detained at Amsterdam's Schipol International Airport on Friday, according to Australian Federal Police (AFP), which has taken the lead in a sprawling international investigation. Before his arrest, Tse was one of the world's most-wanted fugitives.

Authorities allege that Tse, 57, is the leader of the Sam Gor Syndicate, arguably the biggest drug-trafficking operation in Asia's history. Experts say he is in the same league as notorious drug lords El Chapo and Pablo Escobar.

"The importance of Tse's arrest can not be underestimated. It's big and (has) been a long time coming," said Jeremy Douglas, the Regional Representative of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) in Southeast Asia and the Pacific.
Asia's methamphetamine trade is believed to be worth between $30 billion and $61 billion a year, and Sam Gor, which is sometimes simply referred to as "the Company," is allegedly its biggest player.

The organization is accused of running a synthetic drug manufacturing empire in large swathes of the under-policed jungles of Myanmar, a region marred by civil war and still under the control of various competing warlords and militias -- conditions that make it easy to hide industrial-scale drug manufacturing operations from law enforcement.
From there, Sam Gor has allegedly been able to procure large amounts of precursor chemicals, the ingredients to make synthetic drugs, and then move them across the region to nearby markets in Bangkok, but also to farther-flung ones in Australia and Japan, law enforcement said.

Sam Gor allegedly had operatives working throughout the globe, with players in South Korea, England, Canada and the United States, according to a briefing on the syndicate shared with CNN by an official with direct knowledge of the investigation.
The documents described Sam Gor as a "triad-like network" -- a reference to ethnic Chinese gangs that operate in Asia and North America -- but more mobile and dynamic. The group's existence was revealed in 2016 after a Taiwanese drug trafficker was arrested in Yangon, Myanmar, the briefing showed.

Further police investigations revealed that the organization was, as of 2018, earning between $8 billion and $17.7 billion worth of illicit proceeds a year, according to the briefing. The organization uses poorly regulated casinos in Southeast Asia to launder a significant portion of those proceeds.

AFP said a warrant was issued for Tse's arrest in 2019 in connection with an operation targeting Sam Gor."The syndicate targeted Australia over a number of years, importing and distributing large amounts of illicit narcotics, laundering the profits overseas and living off the wealth obtained from crime," AFP said in a statement.

Tse allegedly ran his multibillion dollar operation from Hong Kong, Macao and southeast Asia. But his name -- or existence -- was not public knowledge until he was revealed by a Reuters investigation published in 2019.

Dutch police spokesman Thomas Aling said Tse is expected to be extradited after appearing before a judge. Authorities in the Netherlands were unable to provide details about the legal proceedings and it was not clear whether Tse had a lawyer.
This is not Tse's first run-in with law enforcement. Tse pleaded guilty to felony narcotics charges in the United States in 2000 and was sentenced to nine years in prison. Details surrounding the case are limited because it is still sealed, but the source said he was released in 2006 and returned to Canada before moving to Hong Kong.
While Douglas of the UNODC praised Tse's arrest, he said more needed to be done to ensure drug lords cannot take advantage of poor government oversight of the areas in Myanmar and Laos.

"While taking down syndicate leadership matters, the conditions they effectively used in the region to do business remain unaddressed, and the network remains in-place," he said. "A lot of difficult information is about to come out."

Australian police to request extradition of 'Asia's El Chapo' Tse Chi Lop

Australian Federal Police (AFP) are seeking to extradite an alleged Asian drug syndicate leader, compared to Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, who has been arrested boarding a plane at Amsterdam's Schipol Airport.

Tse Chi Lop was arrested by Dutch police on Friday local time at the request of the AFP, after an arrest warrant and Interpol Red Diffusion request was issued for the Chinese-born Canadian national.

Tse is listed as one of the world's most-wanted fugitives, with the AFP claiming his organisation dominates the $AU90 billion-a-year Asia-Pacific drug trade.

The 57-year-old is wanted in Australia for his connection to Operation Volante, which dismantled a global crime syndicate operating in five countries.

According to the AFP, the AFP-led operation resulted in the arrest of 27 people for importing and trafficking "substantial quantities" of heroin and methamphetamine into Australia in 2013.

The AFP said in a statement they would be working with Attorney-General Christian Porter's department to prepare a formal extradition request for Tse.

Police seized over 42 kilograms of drugs, designer goods and jewellery, as well as millions of dollars in cash, during Operation Volante raids in 2013.

Dutch police spokesman Thomas Aling said Tse is expected to be extradited after appearing before a judge, adding that his airport arrest took place without incident as he was attempting to board a flight to Canada.

"He was already on the most-wanted list and he was detained based on intelligence we received," Aling said.

Dutch police were unable to provide details about the legal proceedings and it was not clear if Tse had a lawyer.

Tse is also of interest to "other law enforcement agencies", the AFP said.

'In the league of El Chapo and Pablo Escobar'
Tse, an ex-convict who formerly lived in Toronto, has moved between Macau, Hong Kong and Taiwan in recent years, according to counter-narcotics officers from four countries and documents previously reviewed by Reuters.

"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.

The syndicate he is suspected of running is known to its members as The Company.

Authorities also refer to the syndicate as Sam Gor - or Brother Number Three in Cantonese - after one of Tse's nicknames, Reuters reported at the time.

Reuters was unable to contact Tse for the 2019 report, which described him as "Asia's El Chapo".

The AFP accuses Tse of being "the senior leader of the Sam Gor syndicate".

The group has "been connected with or directly involved in at least 13 cases" of drug trafficking since January 2015, according to the documents cited by Reuters.

I totally agree. This cartel is just a minor two-bit hoodlum the Chinese government can use as a smokescreen to hide their synthetic drug manufacturing and worldwide drug exports.
