Prosecutors of Kosovo organ trade want to find victims abroad

EU prosecutors in Kosovo trying seven people accused of organ trafficking in a landmark case said Tuesday they have asked Russia, Ukraine, Israel and Turkey to help identify victims of the scam.

“We have several requests for legal assistance out to many countries including most importantly the Russian Federation, Israel, Ukraine and Turkey, requesting legal assistance to identify and locate victim donors as a matter of urgency,” EU special prosecutor Jonathan Ratel said.

Seven people are accused of organ trafficking and being part of an organised crime ring in the so-called Medicus case named after the Pristina clinic where the crimes allegedly took place.
