3 Taiwanese arrested for Cambodia human organ harvesting scam

Snakehead arranged for delivery of 'piglets,' unwitting organ donors, to clients in Cambodia.

Three Taiwanese people have been arrested in connection with a human organ harvesting ring that sent victims to Cambodia under the pretext of high-paying jobs.

While investigating a fraud case tied to Cambodia, Taoyuan prosecutors found a mobile phone belonging to a 25-year-old woman surnamed Lin who described a victim who had been duped into going to Cambodia to have their organs harvested. Lin can be seen using terms such as “full dismantlement,” meaning that the heart, liver, kidney, and cornea could be removed, reported ETtoday.

The Taoyuan City Police Department in Chungli set up a special task force to pinpoint the participants in the international human organ harvesting ring. Thus far, the investigation has led to the arrest of three suspects, including Lin, a 27-year-old man surnamed Tsai, and a 31-year-old man surnamed Hsieh.
