Documentary investigation The World’s Biggest Druglord TSE CHI LOP premieres today

- ADVERTISEMENT -

This month will see Discovery premiere an exclusive new special, The World’s Biggest Druglord -Tse Chi Lop, which documents the rise and capture of a criminal mastermind, and one of the world’s most wanted fugitives for the very first time.

Tse Chi Lop is the alleged architect behind the largest drug trafficking operation in history, yet unlike his global counterparts, he remained under the radar for more than a decade.

From the drug factories in the Golden Triangle of Southeast Asia and Italian mafia, to Yakuza of Japan and motorcycle gangs of U.S., Tse Chi Lop silently captured the global drug network like no other.

His arrest in Amsterdam in January 2021 was a collaborative effort of more than 20 countries and organisations, including Interpol and the States Drug Enforcement Administration, in a sting led by the Australian Federal Police. 

Featuring unparalleled commentary from the FBI, DEA and AFP, the documentaryexamines how Tse Chi Lop allegedly orchestrated a US$60 billion global drug business, while remaining virtually unknown.

Drawing upon the expertise of Harvard professor Laura Huang, it unpicks Tse Chi Lop’s character to reveal the drug lord’s business insights and entrepreneurial strategies, exploring how he capitalised on the shift in consumer demand to the tune of billions of dollars…until he was eventually caught.

The World’s Biggest Druglord – Tse Chi Lop is produced by IFA Media and Discovery, Inc. For IFA Media, Executive Producers are Dean Johnson and Mike Welsh and for Discovery, Executive Producer is Lynn Ng and Supervising Producer is Ishaan Misra.

Stream or watch The World’s Biggest Druglord -Tse Chi Lop on Monday 15, November at 8.30pm AEDT on Discovery.

Discovery is available in Australia on Foxtel and Fetch
