By ASSOCIATED PRESS
11/12/2010
Kosovo — A European Union prosecutor has named seven people as suspects in an international organ trafficking network, according to the indictment obtained Thursday by The Associated Press.

The indictment is the starkest revelation of the extent of organized crime in the country since Kosovo declared independence in 2008.

In the document, EU prosecutor Jonathan Ratel said that "the organized criminal group" trafficked persons into Kosovo for the purpose of removing "human organs for transplant to other persons." It added that the investigation found that some 20 foreign nationals "were recruited with false promises of payments" in 2008.
