Romanian court rules fertility clinic owners must remain in custody

A Romanian court on Monday rejected an appeal by two Israelis suspected of human egg trafficking, keeping them in custody. The lawyers of father and son Harry and Yair Meron, the owners of a Bucharest fertility clinic, claimed that their clients did not pose a danger to the public, and asked that they be allowed to move around Romania, albeit with restrictions. However, prosecutors expressed concern that the suspects would obstruct the investigation. Last week, the two were remanded for 29 days.
