I remember watching a few horror flicks about organ harvesting. One of my favorites had nothing to do with the Balkans. TURISTAS was released in 2006.. it didn’t get the best reviews, but I enjoyed it! It was about a few friends that took a vacation down in Brazil and end up being trapped by an organ trafficking organization that was harvesting organs.
I had heard rumors of organ trafficking in the past, but blew them off as B.S. I never dreamed that humans would actually be capable of such a dastardly deed! During my travels in Serbia ….. I heard many Serbs telling stories of Serb captives being dismembered and having their organs sold throughout the world. I really didn’t believe it. I did sit down one night and Google organ trafficking in the Balkans. WOW.. There was lots of information that popped up. The accusations went all the way to the top of the Kosovo government! I am not here to get political or stick my nose places It shouldn’t be….. BUT I think this information should be made public. The world community has always blamed Serbs! Can’t we spend a few minutes and listen to some of their accusations??
In 2010, 7 people were charged with organ harvesting in Kosovo. The accusations stated that poor people were lured to Pristina with promises of money, work, etc…. Organs were said to have been harvested and sold for $20,000 USD and up to people in Israel and as far off as Canada. Here is a great article from New York Times stating the claims in great detail. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/11/16/world/europe/16kosovo.html
Yesterday…. a BIG break occurred in the case…. A former Kosovo rebel witness came forward telling of his involvement in organ harvesting. He told of being sent to a crash course class on removing organs! He told of an account where he had removed the beating heart from a living Serb that was tied to a table begging for his life!!! The story sent shivers down my spine!!!! http://www.smh.com.au/world/live-prisoners-heart-cut-out-for-illegal-organ-trade-says-witness-20120911-25qfk.html
The French made a film about organ trafficking in Kosovo. It is called “CAPTIFS” I have received a few messages from Serbs that have seen this film and they say it portrays Serbs in a bad light. The internet description claims that the organ traffickers are NON SLAVS in the review. You can read about it here..http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1600701/
Once again, My point is not to be political. I am not accusing, spreading rumors, spreading hate…. just providing some information for you to make an informed decision. Have we investigated these charges enough?? Did we choose the right friends??? Just asking………..
