Were missing SA men victims of Vietnamese organ harvesting syndicate?
Disaster relief group Gift of the Givers fears two South African men who went missing in Vietnam may have fallen prey to an organ harvesting syndicate.
Teachers John Bothma and Mushfiq Daniels - who were not known to each other - disappeared in May and July respectively.
Dr Imtiaz Sooliman says certain things said to him by John Bothma's aunt led him to the organ syndicate theory.
She said an American lady close to John had told her she had some issues in Brazil - that's a country where organ trade takes place.Imtiaz Sooliman, Director - Gift of the Givers
She also told her, after John disappeared that he had wanted to sell one of his kidneys.Imtiaz Sooliman, Director - Gift of the Givers
It doesn't make sense. It means that this is some kind of a cover-up.Imtiaz Sooliman, Director - Gift of the Givers
Sooliman says upon investigation, he discovered that earlier this year the Vietnamese government had smashed one of the biggest organ smuggling syndicates in the country.
Further, of the 95 million people living in Vietnam, 5 million are in need of organs.Imtiaz Sooliman, Director - Gift of the Givers
