8 jailed in Vietnam for kidney racket in Cambodia

A court in Vietnam has handed down jail sentences of between 10 to 16 years to eight people after they were convicted of luring 37 people to Cambodia for “trading human body parts” as part of a kidney donation racket.

The accused worked as brokers for an organ trading ring, the largest in Vietnam, between April 2017 and January 2019, a court in Ho Chi Minh City was told last week.

In a report on March 24, the Hanoi-based VNExpress news portal said the ring leader, Ton Nu Thi Huyen, 46, died of a kidney failure during the investigation but had attracted 100 kidney sellers and sent 37 of them to neighboring Cambodia where the transplant surgery took place.
