Port Sudan: Body of Organ Harvesting Victim Found

On a news item it carried on March 7, 2014, the Sudanese website alrakoba.net stated that “Sudanese police announced that it found a body of a mentally sick young person [identified by some people] at the Thewra neighborhood of Port Sudan.”

Several organs were harvested from the body before it was discarded on the street.

For almost a decade now, Eastern Sudan, particularly the town of Kassala and its environs, have seen scenes of gruesome crimes related to criminals engaged in human trafficking and organ harvesting.

This is the first such crime to be reported from Port Sudan which receives lesser number of Eritrean refugees  compared to Kassala which is around thirty kilometers from the Eritrean border towns.

According to alrakoba, the police reached the crime scene after they were tipped by citizens who found the body, with clear signs of abuse, on a street. It further stated that  the police took the body to a morgue for an autopsy where it was declared that the heart, the kidneys and private parts of the body were harvested.

Gedab News called a contact who verified the news and said that “the operation to extract the parts seem professionally done which means knowledgeable medical personnel were involved in the crime.” He also stated that, “this is the first time I hear of harvesting private parts.”

Alrakoba also quoted the police as a saying the crime is a work of organized human traffickers.

It is unclear as to what the nationality of the victim is but for over a decade now, young Eritreans have been fleeing their homeland from gloomy living conditions, lack of future prospects and unlimited conscripted military service.  Many have ended up in Sinai, victims of human smugglers and organ harvesters.

    I have come to the conclusion that presence of an armed opposition unit on the Sudan border is the only mean to protect the refugees, considering that individuals connected to the governments of Eritrea and Sudan are making money out of it.

    Unless we are ready to put our hands in our pockets, unfortunately this problem will linger until change comes. The news about Port Sudan should not surprise us as people are being snatched from the heart of Asmara.

    The bitter truth that I heard from few people and an old lady is that, we have no MEN, DIA has armed every house, but nobody is willing to protect himself, those in the country say they are waiting for the Diaspora to bring relief and we are waiting for them. In the meantime, the criminal entity are having a free ride.

    Sorry that I can’t provide a cost analysis for that some are insistent that it should have been done last time, implying we should do that each time before we move next time. The current situation is very distractive and it can only spread like a cancer if not halted.

    Some quotes from the Quran

    22:40 (They are) those who have been expelled from their homes in defiance of right,- (for no cause) except that they say, “our Lord is Allah.. Did not Allah check one set of people by means of another, there would surely have been pulled down monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques, in which the name of Allah is commemorated in abundant measure. Allah will certainly aid those who aid his (cause);- for verily Allah is full of Strength, Exalted in Might, (able to enforce His Will).

    8:53 53. “Because Allah will never change the grace which He hath bestowed on a people until they change what is in their (own) souls: and verily Allah is He Who heareth and knoweth (all things).”

    I like to believe that this “enjoy” thing is an inadvertent overlook.

    Did I understand it correctly. Is the article saying that the Police determined, after having conducted a postmortem examination, that the person was mentally deranged.

    According to the article “Sudanese police announced that it found a body of a mentally sick young person at the Thewra neighborhood of Port Sudan.”

      Good catch Dawit. It was corrected a while earlier. This is the correction:

      “Sudanese police announced that it found a body of a mentally sick young person [identified by some people] at the Thewra neighborhood of Port Sudan.”

    • SMichael

      Yes indeed Dawitom a dumb and silly report but it sound that they already identified him as a mentally ill person before he was brutally murdered
