Indonesian Maid ‘Had Kidney Stolen in Qatar’ in Suspected Case of Organ Trafficking

March 1, 2017

(The Telegraph) – An Indonesian domestic worker has claimed her kidney was stolen without her knowledge while she worked in Doha, Qatar, three years ago. Sri Rabitah, 25, told the Indonesian press on Monday that she only realised what had happened earlier this year when she returned to her home island of Lombok and went to hospital complaining of constant back pain. Doctors told the young mother that one of her kidneys was missing.
