A Canadian Chinese drug lord who had been hunted by police of several nations is going on trial in south China's Guangdong Province charged with manufacturing and selling drugs.

Deng Rihua, 49, who had run a drug ring under an alias Chen Weihua, appeared at the Intermediate People's Court of Guangzhou City at the first-instance hearing on Thursday and Friday, together with nine accomplices.

The court heard that Deng and his accomplices bought 3,150 kg of drug-producing raw material from northwestern Qinghai Province and stored it into a warehouse in Guangzhou in May last year.

In July and August last year, Deng and his accomplices manufactured about 100 kg of met amphetamine, commonly known as ice, in an orchard of Gaoyao City of Guangdong. In November, they manufactured another 4.5 kg of ice in an abandoned quarry in Guangzhou.

The ice drugs were sold by the ring at a price of 130,000 yuan (17,300 U.S. dollars) per kg at the end of last year.

The ring also allegedly manufactured a number of Yaba tablets -- a combination of methamphetamine and caffeine which means crazy medicine in Thai -- in an old house in Foshan City of Guangdong in October last year, the court heard.

Deng and his accomplices were captured by police in an orchard of Guangzhou on Dec. 28 last year, when they were manufacturing drugs. Police also seized three kg of ice and 400 kg half-finished products of ice.

Deng, a native of Qujiang County of Guangdong's Shaoguan City and now of Canadian nationality, had been manufacturing and selling drugs for more than ten years in several nations.

He had been listed as wanted by China, the United States, Canada, Australia, the Philippines and India.

The trial on Deng's case is continuing.
