Ukraine tries Israeli human traffickers
(Nov. 4, 2011)
Three members of the ring, which specialized in selling body organs from trafficked victims, worked at a clinic in Azerbaijan's capital city of Baku, IRIB reported on Friday.
Run by an Israeli national with no medical training, the clinic was used as a front for trafficking body organs harvested from Azeri children.
An official report issued by Ukrainian authorities said that the criminal Israeli ring has been involved in 25 cases of organ trafficking, though the actual number of operations is presumed to be much higher.
Although the ring operated in Azerbaijan, the Azeri press has remained silent on the case so as not to disrupt relations with the Zionist regime of Israel.
It is believed that the trial is being in Ukrainian capital city, Kiev, in order to prevent disclosure of other crimes committed by the criminal ring which is directly supported by the Israeli regime.
Political observers believe that Azerbaijan eagerness to develop closer with Israel is the main reason which has emboldened the Israeli regime to commit such crimes in the country.
This is not the first organ trafficking case Israelis have been involved in. In August 2010, Ukrainian police smashed an Israeli-run organ trafficking network illegally recruiting donors to send their body organs to Israel.
The network, which sought mostly kidneys, offered as much as USD 10,000 per organ and according to Ukraine's interior ministry most of the donors were impoverished young women.
While the organization sold the kidneys for USD 140,000, some of the organ donors received no money after their kidneys were removed in countries like Azerbaijan and the Philippines.
