Australian police have extradited Asia’s first-most wanted suspected drug lord, who faces a possible life sentence.

Tse Chi Lube is accused of leading a multibillion-dollar drug operation that spans several countries in the Asia-Pacific, from Japan to New Zealand.

The man is a notorious figure, whose status in Asia has always prompted comparison with Mexican drug lord El Chapo, and he was arrested by the International Police (Interpol) last year at a Dutch airport.

After a battle that lasted nearly two years, he was finally handed over on Thursday to Australian authorities.
