CHINA-ZHEJIANG-HANGZHOU-KIDNEY TRAFFICKING-TRIAL (CN)

(130222) -- HANGZHOU, Feb. 22, 2013 (Xinhua) -- Defendants stand trial over kidney trafficking at the People's Court of Jianggan District in Hangzhou, capital of east China's Zhejiang Province, Feb. 21, 2013. Nine people, all under the age of 30, stood trial on Feb. 21 for kidney trafficking here. They recruited people who were willing to sell their kidneys and the kidney trafficking ring had recruited 38 people, 11 of whom sold their kidneys before the case was cracked by the Hangzhou police in May 2012. Traffickers could earn between 20,000 and 30,000 yuan (4,805 U.S. dollars) for each kidney. The nine should be prosecuted for the crime of organizing human organ trafficking, according to the procuratorate. The court will sentence the nine at a later date. (Xinhua/Ju Huanzong) (lfj)
