Harsher crackdown on illegal organ transplants


16:25, August 13, 2012

BEIJING - China's Health Ministry on Monday vowed to cooperate with police investigations into medical institutions and workers involved in instances of illegal human organ transplants.

Police will announce the list of hospitals and doctors involved in some recently-uncovered human organ trafficking rings, Deng Haihua, the ministry's spokesman, said at a press conference here.

The ministry will work with judicial departments to punish those who have violated professional codes, Deng said.

Chinese police said early this month that 137 suspects had been arrested in the latest crackdown on human organ trafficking jointly conducted by 18 provincial police authorities in late July. Police rescued 127 organ suppliers in the operation.

Police said the detained suspects illegally recruited suppliers over the Internet, facilitated the deals and made huge profits from the transactions.

Also, a court in central China's Hunan Province on Friday concluded the trial of nine people involved in the illegal trade of a teenager's kidney. A surgeon, two nurses, a surgical assistant and an anesthesiologist were charged.
