PETALING JAYA • A Malaysian is reportedly involved in organ trafficking by luring poverty-stricken victims from around the world to sell their organs, according to a British newspaper.
The Sun reported that the man had boasted to the British paper that he had masterminded 45 illicit kidney sales.
The report claimed he began using a Facebook group two years ago to buy and sell kidneys, sourcing potential organ donors from the poor.
According to The Sun, the Malaysian has allegedly been involved in the illegal trade since 2010.
His operation was then centred in China in which he had asked patients to leave China within two weeks to “dispose of the evidence” even though they were still not completely healed.
However, the report said the man stopped his China operations in 2016 when he heard that kidneys were mostly taken from the Uighur communities who were held in concentration camps.
