KUALA LUMPUR -- Police have refuted allegations that any local hospital has been involved in organ trade activities.
Bukit Aman CID director Datuk Seri Mohd Bakri Zinin said their investigations had not found evidence which could prove that such activities were being carried out at any of the local hospitals.
"The police, along with the Health Ministry and Interpol, found that no hospitals in Malaysia were involved in illegal organ harvesting and trade, and we urge anyone with information on such activities to make a report, so the police can investigate.
"Organ trade is not an easy activity to carry out as it involves many processes, and we continuously monitor and investigate to prevent this crime," he told a news conference with Health director-general Datuk Dr Hasan Abdul Rahman also present.
The media reported on Sept 21, last year that Bangladeshi police launched an operation to crack down on illegal kidney trade in Southeat Asia, following the arrest of eight suspects involved in persuading illiterate victims.
Investigations revealed the eight suspects were detained at a hospital in Bangladesh, which links in India, Malaysia and Indonesia. - Bernama
