2018

At the opposite end of Kwun Tong Sai Wan, around the bay towards Kowloon facing the eastern harbour tunnel, and not far from cadaver point, there was what could only be described as a block. It was almost a perfect square. An austere cube like structure, all glass and little square portals down the north and south sides, solid rough grey concrete walls on the east and west ends....

cadaver point
2018

It was called Cadaver Point! On more than one occasion, a dismembered body had been found there. Bits scattered across the muddy allotment facing Kwun Tong Sai Wan.

Those who inhabited the concrete drabness of nearby Yau Tong estate, had regularly seen the police arrive with torches to probe the derelict precinct. Patrol cars with iridescent blue lights pulsing into the yellow shadows. Constant yet intermittent flashes that illuminated hunched figures with harried faces that walked shoulder to shoulder across the mud, looking for body parts.

The question the press and investigators kept asking; who was responsible for these grisly murders? Forensics were unable to determine to whom the bits and pieces belonged. It was all a big mystery…..

A law had been drafted that would ensure Hong Kong would be ‘left alone’! Allowed to prosper for the benefit of all. It’s citizenry given free reign to prosper if they showed allegiance to the motherland. But if they didn’t? Well therein lies the rub. Hong Kong would morph into Spookville. It had already. Central was now spy central. And The Red Corporation (TRC) the biggest corporation of them all, was taking control. Sowing the seeds of distrust.

Their internet based disinformation divisions working over the border. Working overtime. Gangsters as goons strategically placed within Hong Kong grass roots to sow the seeds of distrust and hatred. Their objective. To stoke the discontent, disillusionment. Ensure anarchy prevailed. Divide and rule was the name of the game. Yes spy central, was now where operatives from the free and not so free world played hide and seek, a dangerous game of cat and mouse. It was all about not been seen. Spooks where everywhere but seemingly nowhere!

They existed in minds of the citizenry as shadowy, hidden figures, but in fact they were right there in plain sight if only we knew where to look.

Grey was also the (Red) Corporation dress code! Actually grey and black! Those in the know confirmed it. Case officers wore grey. Swallows in black. Ravens in grey. Nobody was supposed to know how these black clad field operatives ran black ops, from black sites, operating in grey zones.

2018

Neonopolis authorities play a dangerous game of cat and mouse attempting to flush out informants! Track down those implanted by The Red Corporation to snoop! Spies embedded to eavesdrop on the labouring minions, probe the corporate management ranks, infiltrate the political hierarchy, spread disinformation. Neonopolis agents must act ruthlessly yet appear benign, for an alarmed populace would be counter productive to the 3 tenants; social cohesion, servitude and calm. The Red Corporation wants to divide and rule. Albeit clandestinely.

rule number 1 assume nothing and question everything
2018 *

He said firmly “规则第一!不承担任何责任,质疑一切” “rule number one! Assume nothing, question everything”!

This was the corporations dictum to new recruits and he offered it up with an expressionless face to the young protege over tea at the Marriott. “Compliance to this dictum was rule number two”, he added. Handlers or instructors delivered instructions with objectivity bias. There was no allowance for subjectivity. Showing friendly emotional gestures such as smiling while delivering edicts was against corporation rules. Those held responsible for maintaining field agent allegiance were trained in human behavioural psychology, and understood that behavior change conditioning was acquired through constant mentoring and monitoring! As her compliant task master he had to ensure her condition remained stable. For while she had been trained to perform corporation specific tasks, regardless of her genetic background, personality trait or internal thoughts, he knew constant brain washing or rather brain tuning was necessary. It was part of the indoctrination process and an edict that came from Red Corps central.

He prompted her to repeat after him! “I live in a world of fabrication and deceit, therefore my interpretation is everything. My exegesis has always to come from a position of objectivity. All emotional impulses or subjective reasoning and thought must be repressed at all time. Pushed back into the deep recesses of my mind. I must not take anything at face value and I know that nothing is what it appears to be. By assuming nothing and questioning everything I take chance out of the equation”.

He then gestured for her to take a sip from her tea!

watch list. cafe adriatico
2018

The news broke only after the police investigation concluded it had not been suicide! The term ‘throwaway‘ appeared later in their report. Seemingly espionage parlance for an operative deemed expendable! They passed the case onto special branch, who concluded after investigation the person identified at the morgue was Steven Ching and most certainly TRC. He had taken a tumble for speaking about his tradecraft to the wrong person. By breaking the code of silence he had sealed his fate. But who had he been confiding in? The investigation at this point turned to the maitre’d at the Cafe Adriatico. Maxine Chan. She was suspected of been Ching’s mistress.

Special branch didn’t take long to find out that Ching had been visiting Cafe Adriatic frequently over the past 12 months. Lingering over lunch or dinner depending on Maxine’s shift. They would be seen by the janitor after hours, heading down to her staff digs on the 3rd floor. Room 301. A cramped single with no windows. Ching’s case officer had the room bugged.

Questions arose. Did Maxine Chan agree to the eavesdropping? Did she sell Ching out for money? Was she signed up to play raven, ready to pull all manner of trick or treat to coax his tongue? Whatever happened or was said in room 301 we shall never know. Evidently however, the corporation set the honey trap and Ching walked right into it.
Three tall Chinese men, dressed in black and who spoke in thick Beijing accents were seen by the Bangladeshi cleaner escorting Ching to the elevator in the early hours one evening. Instead of going down they went up. That was the last time Ching was seen alive. The three mystery men then vanished.

There was no proof Maxine Chan was complicit in the killing. She’s still there at Cafe Adriatico and rumour has it, back on the watch list for the Corporation. But nobody could prove it.

for your ears only -information that is intended for the ears of one specified person only
2018

Hong Kong had become contested space. A convergence zone, where East and West ideology intersected and the line was drawn between the free and not so free world. It was the arena where two super powers presented their ideology to the world and considered it a staging point for regional hegemony. Hong Kong had been regarded as an economic powerhouse, hence corporations with three letter acronyms were common place. GKB, SMS, CAI, ISS, TRC to name just a few. This was a place where freedom and liberty had been taken for granted. The so called one motherland and two body politics.
