Chinese authorities swoop down on traffickers


Authorities in the Glorious People’s Republic of China have indicted five people in central China over their involvement in a bizarre organ trafficking case.

The suspects face charges of organizing the removal and transplant of a kidney from a 17-year-old high school student, who offered to trade his kidney for an iPhone and iPad. A spokesperson for the local prosecutor’s office confirmed that the defendants are facing charges of “intentional injury.”

The suspects include a surgeon, hospital contractor and brokers who organized the deed. The group received $35,000 for the transplant and they gave $3,500 to the student, sharing the rest among themselves and several medical staff involved in the procedure.
