Teenage girl’s organs nearly sold on the black market!






Young Model

Arrives in

Moscow to

Have Her

Organs Sold


By Alexander Starkov

October 22nd, 2009



A man who tried to sell a

young woman for her organs

was arrested in the

south-west part of Moscow.


a 29-year old citizen of Tashkent,

brought his 18-year old relative

to Moscow with the intentions

of making €50,000 from her.

The police uncovered the

organ trafficker accidentally,

during another investigation,

Marina Molokova,

head of the media department

of the Moscow Ministry of

Internal Affairs,

told Pravda.ru.

To arrest the criminal,

policemen introduced themselves as

buyers interested in human organs.

At first, the seller priced

the woman at €100,000,

but then agreed to make a

discount and sell her for half

of the price.

The “generous” seller offered to

sell a couple more people,

likely in bulk.




The policemen gave Temur

some time to think and

reconsider his decision to

sell his relative,

but he was determined to go

through with the deal.

The seller and the “buyers” met

a few days later on Leninsky

prospect in Moscow near

a restaurant.

Temur brought Karina,

the victim.

However, instead of €50,000

he received a ward in jail

and was charged with

human trafficking.

Karina was shocked to learn

what Temur was going to do

with her.

The police found out that the

woman had no idea that her

organs could be sold.

She came to Russia

to become a model,

and Temur,

whom she knew a

little over a year,

offered her his help in

conquering Moscow.



He even managed to earn

the trust of her parents.

He promised them to help

their daughter and took

her to Moscow.

He requested that Karina

undergoes medical tests

explaining that it would be

helpful and will prove

potential employers that she

is capable of working long hours.

In reality,

the criminal intended to show

the results of medical tests to

organ buyers as a proof

of high-quality “goods.”

Prior to his meeting with

the undercover “buyers,”

Temur told Karina that he

was taking her to meet with

representatives of

a modeling agency.

If Temur were to

meet with real buyers,

Karina would never be

able to have a modeling career

or see her parents again.

Karina was saved by sheer

accident that helped the police

to find Temur.





not all victims of organ

traffickers are that lucky.

Every year thousands of people

are forced to become organ

donors against their will.

According to the United Nations,

every year 3,500 to 7,000

(5 to 10 percent) of

68,000 kidney transplants are the

results of illegal organ trafficking.

Today, the so-called

“transplant tourism” is the

most serious threat.

Patients travel to the

countries where commercial

transplants are allowed and

donors’ rights are not protected,

and receive donor organs

without red-tape and long

waiting periods.

The lack of general international

legislation regarding organ

trafficking makes the global

struggle against illegal

transplants useless.



the UN and the European Council

suggested the development

of an international convention

that would prohibit selling organs,

tissue and cells throughout

the world.
