Ex-officials Arrested in Kosovo for Organ Trafficking

A former Kosovo health minister and another Pristina official are among eight suspects in a new EU probe into a human organ trafficking case, a local daily reported Tuesday.

Last Tuesday, a day after a European Union-led court in Kosovo convicted five doctors of harvesting and selling kidneys at a Pristina clinic, the EU’s Pristina mission announced the new probe without revealing the identity of the suspects.

It said they were under investigation for “organised crime, trafficking in persons, grievous bodily harm, abusing official position of authority, fraud and trading in influence.”
