The Foreign Ministry has warned the Egyptian citizens against human organs trade in China after a law has been issued there to organize such matters.
Deputy Assistant Foreign Minister for of Consular Affairs Ashraf Shiha said our embassy in Beijing reported that many Egyptians went to China for organ transplant especially for liver transplant.
Shiha added that the new law in China read such operations were only to be done under certain organizations tasked by the Chinese government.
The amendment has caused such operations to cost 250-300 thousand dollars.
Shiha said those who want to undergo such operations in China need to communicate with the website www.cot.org.cn before they decide to travel to Beijing.
