BONSERNEWS.com – DPR Speaker Puan Maharani appreciated the National Police regarding the disclosure of the TIP case of the syndicate selling kidneys to Cambodia. Puan believes that disclosing this case will minimize the number of victims.
“Disclosing this case minimizes further victims. The practice of trading organs abroad is a serious violation and is a criminal act that cannot be tolerated,” said Puan, Saturday, July 22, 2023.
In this case, Polda Metro Jaya named 12 suspects, including a police officer with the initials M alias D with the rank of Aipda for being involved. Aipda M is not part of the syndicate but has helped the TIP suspect to get rid of his tracks. Aipda M was arrested for obstructing the investigation.

The police also arrested an unscrupulous immigration officer on duty at Ngurah Rai Airport, Bali, with the initials AH for abusing his authority. AH received a sum of money by helping arrange the departures of the syndicates.
While the other 9 suspects were victims of organ trafficking practices who were later recruited by an international network, to return to look for prey in their homeland. And another person with the initials H is a liaison between the victim and the hospital where the transplant was carried out. Police are still hunting for the other perpetrators.

Puan asked for this case to be thoroughly investigated. He hopes that the National Police will work professionally in investigating the TIP case.
“We also hope that the police can work professionally in investigating the individual members involved in this case, including elements from the Immigration Service,” said Puan.
Furthermore, Puan encouraged the National Police to find the brains behind the creation of the organ trading syndicate. Puan also asked the police to investigate the possibility that there were other authorities involved in the organ trafficking case to Cambodia.
“This is a practice that carries a lot of risk. It must be traced how the syndicates have so far safely carried out their crimes. Moreover, syndicates net people, so efforts and parties must be known which can pass their departure to their transactions,” he said.
Puan also asked the government to cooperate with Cambodia and other countries which have indications that they are also locations for the practice of organ trafficking. Thus, the investigation of this case will run smoothly.
“International cooperation with related countries is very important. Sharing information and cooperation with law enforcement agents from other countries can also help uncover organ trafficking syndicates more effectively,” explained Puan.
Weak education about the dangers of the practice of organ trafficking in Indonesia is considered to have been taken advantage of by international syndicates because victims are lured by money. According to Puan, the government must promote education and socialization regarding the dangers of this crime of TIP.
