Country Report Macau

On September 18th a three-month campaign in Hong Kong, Macau and China's Guangdong province against "triad" criminal gangs was concluded. On September 24th the Hong Kong media reported that more than 19,000 criminal suspects had been arrested in the three jurisdictions.

The anti-triad campaign is a welcome sign of co-ordination in cross-boundary matters involving the three regions. It is an annual affair that normally lasts a month, but the police sweep was disrupted in 2014 by the Occupy Central protests in Hong Kong. The latest operation was consequently extended to three months, netting an unusually large number of suspects.

Hong Kong is generally noted for its safety and strong rule of law. However, in recent years the local authorities have expressed concern that the triad gangs that run drug-trafficking, prostitution, loan-sharking and gambling operations have begun to extend their activities into mainland China. The anti-triad campaign saw 4,343 arrests made in Hong Kong, including 1,177 mainlanders. These followed some high-profile recent cases that have been at least tangentially linked to the triads, notably a knife attack on a former newspaper editor, Kevin Lau, in February 2014.
