The officer, whose real age and identity have been kept secret, posed as a student from October 2005 to January 2006 using a tactic from a 1991 movie “Fight Back to School”, featuring Hong Kong superstar Stephen Chow.

The officer made friends with the gangsters operating in and around the school and watched them deal drugs, recruit students and beat up other students, according to testimony at the trial of one suspect.

Hong Kong’s Triad gangs (δΈ‰εˆζœƒ) are secret societies that operate drug trafficking syndicates and protection rackets. Hong Kong police estimate that they are responsible for 3 per cent of all crime in the city.

In Fight Back to School, Stephen Chow goes undercover as a student at a Hong Kong high school to recover a senior officer’s missing revolver, and accidentally exposed a triad gang. It was a comedic movie… but it doesn’t sound fun at all when the undercover happens in real life.
