Romania busts Israeli human egg-trafficking ring


Israelis Nathan Levitt (L) and Genya Ziskind have been arrested in Romania on suspicion of trafficking in human eggs.

Two Israeli doctors and three others have been arrested and are being held in detention in Romania over suspicion of trafficking in human eggs.

The two Israeli gynecologists are accused of “human egg-trafficking, involvement in a criminal group, and practicing medicine without a permit,” the chief prosecutor of Romania’s Organized Crime Department, Codrut Olaru, told AFP on Tuesday.

He said that after questioning the suspects for several hours on Tuesday, the prosecution decided to place them in detention for 24 hours.

The two gynecologists, who were banned from leaving the country last week, “did not have the required authorization to practice in Romania,” he added.

The Israeli consul general to Bucharest, Lili Ben-Harush, identified the detained Israelis as Professor Nathan Levitt and Dr. Genya Ziskind.

Last week about 30 Israelis were arrested in a Romanian fertility clinic for similar offences.

The clinic is owned by Israeli father and son Harry and Yair Miron, who remain in detention on the orders of Romania’s prosecutors.

The two ran the Sabyc clinic in Bucharest, which specializes in in-vitro fertilization (IVF) and plastic surgery.

They are suspected of recruiting Romanian women aged between 18 and 30 and paying them 800 to 1,000 leis ($271 to $338) for their eggs, and selling the eggs for 8,000 to 10,000 euros ($11,339-$14,174) to women in need of artificial fertilization, reported the Romanian daily Gardianul.

According to the newspaper, the clinic’s annual earnings are around 20 million euros ($28.4 million).

Most of the clients came from Israel, Italy, and Britain.

    It more and more looks like Antisemitism is actually not an offense, but the only normal reaction.

    Well, kidneys aren’t lucrative enough.

    I mean, you can only get 2 kidneys out of an uncooperative Palestinian, whereas, you can get 4-6 eggs out of doners we don’t even have to capture!

    Good business sense.

    I was reading an article in Haaretz, and it mentioned that when the clinic was raided there was an Israeli patient there wo had been referred there by her doctor at an IDF Clinic in Israel. I was wondering why, are there not legal egg donor programs inside Israel. I then went to the website of one IVF Clinic in Northern Israel and read this about the use of egg donors in Israel:

    “Egg Donation Pricing

    Egg donation is subjected to restrictions by the Israeli Ministry of Health. A new “egg donation” law is expected in the “near” future, hopefully. Currently, availability of eggs for donation in Israel is low, since the law limits donation from IVF patients only. However, we do offer egg donation in Kiev Ukraine (a major European airline hub). The IVF in Kiev had received formal recognition by the Israeli Ministry of Health, and is run by Israeli physicians. Donors are healthy, fertile women, who undergo routine tests as recommended by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM).

    How does it work? After receiving full medical information via email, uterine preparation is synchronized with expected day of egg retrieval. All medical steps are to be done at home country according to medical instructions given over the phone or email. Flight to Kiev is booked to coincide with egg retrieval; stay in Kiev is limited to 3 – 5 days. Price for 6 mature eggs is 6,000 Euro (allows for a fresh transfer and for embryo cryopreservation for future use). Pregnancy rates for fresh and thaw cycles are 50% and 40%, respectively.

    Please contact us for further information.

    All prices are effective through December 31, 2009.”

    So, I think the information I just retrieved from the Israeli IVF Clinic raises some interesting questions.

    Are the eggs transfrerred into Israeli women in the Clinic in the Ukraine legally obtained?

    The article reads like the Israeli government is approving of this clinic, perhaps even reimbursing patient’s expenses to undergo these procedures and egg donations? I say this because I read another article that stated the Israeli government paid for fertility treatments for Israelis.

    The title says it all – an empire begging to dissolve – all out of control – people are getting caught – not the big wigs – but it is a filter down process – guided from above.

    Israel is living with a survival paranoia in a very fertile Palestinian environment. Spoiling people’s lives, looting organs or eggs to help procreate more Israelis seems a very convincing zionfascistic logic.
    Zionfascism is second to none in creative criminality. Another first that uglifies more and more Zionists

    Not surprising. The “state” of Israel is itself illegal. Apartheid, colonialism, organ and egg trafficking, ponzi schemes…. the list will grow with every passing day I reckon.

    If you know anything about Israelis and Israeli culture, it is considered something worth bragging about if you can get away with something illegal or if you can screw someone in a business deal. Yes, they brag about it! It’s a crazy place to live, and a weird place to visit. Never deal with an Israeli if you want to keep your shirt (and your wallet.)

    Kosher Vampires??? With each passing day, these organ harvesting stories emerge to reveal the corrupt vile medical mindset of nazi- zionism. Israeli doctors and scientists now pale in comparison to the techniques used in the nazi biomedical experimentations intended to perfect a seamless genocide.

    Two words describe Israel’s scientific community – KOSHER VAMPIRES.

    I found another article, about the investigation at Abu Kabir, that actually states found there was the skull of a deceased Israeli soldier, displayed in a jar. That was found, along with body tissues, and body parts, to include skull fragments, of four Israeli soldiers.

    I do not understand why an Israeli Ministry is dispalying and collecting body parts of it’s dead soldiers, and others (other reports called the site an organ warehouse), at it’s only official autopsy facility.

    And others have told me, Hiss, the Professor in charge there, was not criminally prosecuted or even fired.

    I find all of this unbelievable, unfathomable.

    “Rabbi Gafni Calls for Pathologist’s Suspension in body parts Scandal
    by Yated Ne’eman Staff

    UTJ MK Rabbi Moshe Gafni called for the immeidate firing or suspension of Professor Yehuda Hiss, head of the L. Greenberg Institute of Forensic Medicine at Abu Kabir, over the retention of parts from autopsied soldiers’ bodies. On Monday it was revealed that a soldier’s skull was on display in a glass case, and most of his body was held in the Institute, in violation of the law and of basic principles of human decency. The family of the soldier was not aware of the situation and had not approved it.

    But MK Anat Maor, chairman of the Knesset Science and Technology Committee, also called on Health Minister Nissim Dahan to suspend Hiss immediately.

    The ministry, which owns and supervises the institute, had last week identified body tissue illegally stored there as belonging to four soldiers whose bodies had been autopsied. The soldiers’ families had been informed by the Israel Defense Forces that the parts, including skull fragments, had been identified as belonging to their dear ones.

    The story about the body tissues began last year, when Attorney-General Elyakim Rubinstein ordered a criminal investigation into alleged misdeeds over several years at the Abu Kabir institute

    Health Minister Nissim Dahan had asked Rubinstein to state his position on findings released the previous April by a ministry investigating committee.

    Health Ministry Associate Director-General Yitzhak Berlovich, who was put in direct control of the institute last spring, suspended all of its research activities and obtained funds to renovate the 70-year-old building, whose autopsy rooms and refrigeration facilities were reportedly in terrible condition.

    A newspaper report published a year ago claimed that Abu Kabir had been involved in “selling” body parts removed from corpses without permission from their families to medical research institutes for use by medical students. They wrote that the organs were not returned, but replaced by “broomsticks, cotton wool, garden hoses,” and other objects to fill out the bodies after autopsy. Removal of organs without the family’s written permission is a crime.

    Attorney Nitzana Darshan-Leitner, who has already accused Hiss twice of violating corpses in cases she represented, also called on Rubinstein to suspend Hiss following the new charges. In 1998, Darshan-Leitner sued the institute on behalf of the family of Alisdair Sinclair, a Scotsman who died under mysterious circumstances in the Ben-Gurion Airport lockup.

    Sinclair’s parents discovered that their son’s heart and other organs were missing. The institute later sent the parents a heart and other missing organs, but the family is still not certain they belonged to their son.
    The IDF claimed yesterday that the soldiers’ body parts were kept without its knowledge or approval. They said that no one at Abu Kabir had notified the army they were keeping body parts of soldiers who had been killed in training accidents.”
