    Police smash Israeli organ-trafficking ring

    Police smash Israeli organ-trafficking ring




    A retired army brigadier general is among six suspects arrested by Israeli police investigating an organ-trafficking ring, police say.

    The organisation offered as much as $100,000 (65,600) for kidneys, which were transplanted by doctors in poor countries, a sting operation uncovered.

    Police said they had been "shocked" by the extent of the smuggling ring.

    Retired Gen Meir Zamir, arrested in connection with the trafficking, won a medal of valour in the Yom Kippur War.

    'Dream come true'

    The trafficking ring came to light after a 50-year-old woman from Nazareth came to police.

    We ran an undercover investigation and we were shocked by the proportions of this


    Superintendent Ahron Galor


    She told them she was flown to Azerbaijan where doctors removed her kidney.

    On her return to Israel she was expecting to be given $100,000, but she never received the money.

    Another 18-year-old man complained to police after he was offered $80,000 and flown to the Philippines to have the operation.

    "We ran an undercover investigation and we were shocked by the proportions of this," Police Superintendent Ahron Galor told Ynet News.

    "We learned there are many people willing to sell a kidney for just 10,000. These are people who have severe financial difficulties, for whom such a sum is a dream come true."

    Forging documents

    The traffickers advertised online, suggesting there was another solution for people who had been waiting for kidney transplants for years.

    They offered the kidneys for sale for $140,000.

    As well as Gen Zamir, two lawyers were among those arrested in the sting operation.

    The lawyers are suspected of forging documents which said the recipient and donor were related.

    Police said members of the ring tried to cover their tracks by hiding the Israeli medical records of the donors.

    This made it hard for donors to be treated if they became sick following the surgery.

    Must be a bastard of a thing to get on and off the boat. You would think these trouble-making christian's would try to keep a low profile with the altar boy-fiddling scandals still in the headlines.

    this systmem is benefitting everyone.
    Even piss poor people can make substasial money and help people.

    Imagine you are a poor farang in thailand and have the possibility to sell off one of your kidneys and make 1/2 mill bath. Its a sweet deal and you will do very good with just one.
    Instead in the piss rotten system existing now people are dying wating for a transplant at the same time poor people all over the world are dying pennyless but could have had a ok life if it was allowed to sell of some spair parts.
    Maybe you are a dying man and would go to rest alot more peacefully is you could sell off some organs and set your kids up with a few bob.

    our rotten world is full off dobble standards and meaningless laws.
    This is a smart set up buying/selling bodyparts.
    Do you want to be piss poor in eritrea with two eyes or able to keep your family fed and secure with only one eye.

    The reality being ,,, that the world is in such a state in the year 2010 that people around the planet,, need to sell their body parts to survive .
    That is pretty fukin weird man. And it's true. Fukin true. People have to sell body parts. Has to be said though that the possibility of black market business in that area would be a big step backward for mankind.
