Tse Chi Lop: Alleged Asian drug lord arrested in Amsterdam


Tse Chi Lop was arrested at Amsterdam airport on Friday

Police in the Netherlands have arrested the alleged head of one of the world’s biggest drugs gangs, on a warrant issued by Australia.

Tse Chi Lop – a Chinese-born Canadian national – is said to be the head of The Company, which dominates a $70bn illegal drugs market across Asia.

Listed as one of the world’s most wanted fugitives, Mr Tse was detained at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport.

Australia will now seek his extradition to face trial there.

The Australian Federal Police (AFP) believe The Company is responsible for up to 70% of all illegal drugs entering the country.

The AFP has been tracking Tse Chi Lop, 56, for more than a decade before his arrest on Friday. (BBC)
