Netcare denies international organ syndicate

Lusanda Bill
16 September 2010

Police charged Netcare CEO Friedland and ten other people with more than a hundred counts of fraud, counts of serious assault and counts of contravening the Human Tissues Act and Prevention of Organised Crime Act.

Netcare has since denied any wrong doing with kidney transplants at Durban’s St Augustine’s Hospital.

Netcare CEO Friedland has since said in the group’s website that they have been fully co-operating with the police on the matter for years. He also added that they are surprised and disappointed that the police have now brought charges against Netcare and him personally.

The case relates to more than a 100 operations in which mainly Brazilians were allegedly paid as R42,000 to donate their kidneys to Israeli patients.
