Eight get jail terms for sending 37 Vietnamese to Cambodia to sell their kidneys

A court in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) has handed prison terms to eight people involved in a kidney trading ring that sent 37 Vietnamese to Cambodia as organ donors.

Each of the eight defendants received 10-16 years behind bars for the charge of “trading human body parts.” They all worked as brokers for the kidney trading ring, the largest ever that Vietnamese police have busted.

The ring leader, Ton Nu Thi Huyen, 46, died of kidney failure during the investigation.
