Dear Aiko,

This corporation was indicted...but was it found guilty? That seems like a
pretty important part of the story, if we ascribe at all to the
international principle of presumption of innocence until proven guilty.

I do recall there was case like this -- maybe it was this one -- in Brooklyn
with certain murky charges involving Chinese prisoners on death row whose
organs were allegedly being sold. I would like to hear how they solved the
problem of transportation and storage. There are Chinese human rights
activists like Harry Wu who claim that organs are sold. There is testimony
like this. But it is extremely hard to prove. And in the case of Russia,
there is not even testimony from credible human rights groups or lawyers as
there apparently has been in China.

One can combat trafficking of human beings without adopting a lot of wacky
stories along the way.
