UNODC DEVELOPS TOOLKIT ON THE INVESTIGATION AND PROSECUTION OF TRAFFICKING IN PERSONS FOR ORGAN REMOVAL

On 10 March, the UN Office for Drugs and Crime reported that the number of persons reported to be trafficked for the purpose of organ removal is steadily growing, and North Africa, followed by the Middle East, has the highest share of detections of victims trafficked for the purpose of organ removal.   It reports on the development of a comprehensive toolkit for the investigation and prosecution of trafficking in persons for organ removal. The toolkit consists of a 360° virtual reality crime scene investigation tool which allows law enforcement to better identify and collect evidence from medical surgeries and clinical settings, a comprehensive investigation and prosecution manual and a victim interview protocol.  It is planned to release the toolkit in May.
