World News – Just for future knowledge if you are passing through customs somewhere and involved in organ trafficking be it as a patient or a donor, it i probably not a good idea to tell the customs officer you are there to get a new kidney instead of on vacation…but if you are dumb enough to do this you really cannot expect an intelligent answer when asked “what is the purpose of your trip to Israel?” 

Border control officers at Israel’s Ben-Gurion Airport were instrumental in exposing the organ trafficking ring operating between Israel and Costa Rica last week, Costa Rican officials said over the weekend.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Her family says that they were acutely aware of the risk of illegal organ harvesting and guarded her body in order to prevent it.

They now say that doctors in India later removed her organs to hide the cause of the schoolgirl's death - and there was a hasty cover-up when medics realized they could not extract her organs in time.

RIO DE JANEIRO, May 20 2013 (IPS) - In contravention of international law, in Brazil trafficking in human beings remains invisible and unpunished, which encourages the practice of trafficking for sexual exploitation, forced labour, illegal adoption and the trade in human organs, according to experts.

Local laws punish drug trafficking more severely than human trafficking. The sale of drugs carries penalties of between five and 15 years, while trafficking of persons for sexual exploitation is punished with a maximum sentence of eight years, with work release allowed.
