Three members of the ring, which specialized in selling body organs from trafficked victims, worked at a clinic in Azerbaijan's capital city of Baku, IRIB reported on Friday. Run by an Israeli national with no medical training, the clinic was used as a front for trafficking body organs harvested from Azeri children. Read more.

Quote from this story....

.....It is believed that the trial is being in Ukrainian capital city, Kiev, in order to prevent disclosure of other crimes committed by the criminal ring which is directly supported by the Israeli regime.


If the trial is being held in Kyiv......what is there to hide.....??

Expose these and all those associated with this ugly crime.

&quot;Directly supported ty the Israeli regime&quot;.......

I highly doubt this statement.......

Organ and human trafficking are despicable but, I don't believe the allegations made in this article are true. What jurisdiction would a Ukrainian court have over crimes committed in Azerbaijan? You can't just change venue to another sovereign state, even if they used to be part of the U.S.S.R. The article is also extremely and unnecessarily anti-Semitic and anti-Israel in it's rhetoric. Please consider the source and do not insult our intelligence.
