China issues first-ever prison terms for dealers in human organs
Catholic World News - September 16, 2010
A Chinese court has sentenced 7 people to prison terms for illegal trafficking in human organs.
The convictions marked the first time that anyone had been convicted in connection with the booming Chinese business in organs for transplants. Because the trade in human organs is not illegal in China, and court sentences were for an “illegal business operation.”
