Meeting an organ trafficker who preys on Syrian refugees
There's a glint of pride in Abu Jaafar's eyes as he explains what he does for a living. He used to work as a security guard in a pub but then he met a group which trades in organs. His job is to find people desperate enough to give up parts of their body for money, and the influx of refugees from Syria to Lebanon has created many opportunities. "I do exploit people," he says, though he points out that many could easily have died at home in Syria, and that giving up an organ is nothing by comparison to the horrors they have already experienced. "I'm exploiting them," he says, "and they're benefitting." His base is a small coffee shop in one of the crowded suburbs of southern Beirut, a dilapidated building covered by a plastic tarpaulin. At the back, a room behind a rusty partition is stuffed with old furniture and has budgerigars singing in cages in each corner. From here he has arranged the sale of organs from about 30 refugees in the last three years, he says. "They usually ask for kidneys, yet I can still find and facilitate other organs", he says. "They once asked for an eye, and I was able to acquire a client willing to sell his eye. "I took a picture of the eye and sent it to the guys by Whatsapp for confirmation. I then delivered the client."
