Kosovo requests extradition of Israeli organ trafficker from Cyprus
Pristina - Kosovo on Saturday requested the extradition of an Israeli national arrested last week in Cyprus on suspicion of operating an international network of organ trafficking.


According to the prosecutor's office, the Israeli national, whom the local press has identified as Moshe Harel, is suspected of having organized more than 30 kidney transplants that were made illegally in the Medicus clinic, near Pristina, closed in 2008 when the scandal broke.


Moshe Harel is also charged in Tel Aviv, along with six other Israelis, for allegedly belonging to an international network of organ trafficking and illegal transplants in Kosovo, Azerbaijan, Sri Lanka and Turkey.
