Cannibalism and Extraction of Migrants’ Organs Revealed on Trafficker’s Cellphone

Preliminary investigations into the notorious migrant trafficking kingpin Medhanie Yehdego Mered revealed images and videos of cannibalism, dismembered bodies, murders and the sale of migrants’ organs, according to prosecutors.

Mered, nicknamed “The General,” who was arrested in Sudan last May and extradited to Italy in June, stands trial for the trafficking of thousands of illegal immigrants from Africa to Italy in exchange for millions of dollars.
Images found on the 35-year-old Eritrean’s cell phone and entered into evidence have been described as “a graveyard of horrors,” and allegedly include scenes of cannibalism and the murder of migrants unable to pay the agreed-upon fees.
Testimony from Nuredin Wehabrebi Atta, a former migrant smuggler who now cooperates with law enforcement officials, stated that in the course of the long trek across the Sahara Desert to the Libyan coast, “migrants who are unable to pay the agreed-up sums are systematically killed by criminal organizations involved in human trafficking so as to extract their organs by individuals nicknamed ‘doctors of the Sahara.’”
The organs are reportedly “taken straight to Egypt” where they are sold on the black market. According to Atta’s testimony, kidneys, for instance, are sold for 15 thousand dollars each.
Reports from Eritrean refugees suggest that Sudanese drivers carry migrants to the Libyan border, where they cram them into trucks driven by Libyan smugglers, who take them on a torturous journey across the desert into north-eastern Libya.
Intelligence obtained from Atta enabled Italian police to break up a criminal ring of migrant smugglers, arresting 38 individuals spread throughout ten different Italian provinces in early July. The suspects have been charged with association to abet illegal immigration, financial crimes, and even international drug trafficking.
On May 24, Mered was arrested in the Sudanese capital of Khartoum after a year-long manhunt, in what was touted as the most significant breakthrough to date in Europe’s fight against Africa-based migrant trafficking.
Upon his capture, Italian prosecutor Francesco Lo Voi said that Italy had seized “the boss of one of the most important criminal groups operating in central Africa and Libya.” Fellow prosecutor Calogero Ferrara said that Mered was involved in an operation that was “much larger, more complex and more structured than originally imagined.”
The UK’s National Crime Agency (NCA), which also took part in the investigation, said that “one of the world’s most wanted people-smugglers” had been arrested.
Mered emerged on law enforcement radar after 359 people drowned off the coast of the Italian island of Lampedusa in 2013, a catastrophe linked to Mered’s network.
The trafficker’s Tripoli-based smuggling network was reportedly responsible for the journeys of some 10,000 migrants in just three months in 2014, at a price of up to $915,000 per boatload. Wiretaps obtained by Italian law enforcement suggest Mered’s involvement in extracting ransom payments from the Eritrean diaspora, and also reveal him bragging of his bribes of Libyan policemen to release migrants held within detention center.
Mered now faces a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison if convicted.

    My name is Natasha Hayes from UK. My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity Powerful and really spell caster.

  4. This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experienced. I visited a forum here on the internet on the 17 APRIL 2016, and i saw a marvelous testimony of Tracie Aldana from United States on the forum about the good works DR OSEMU. I never believed it, because have never heard anything about such miracle before. No body would have been able to convince me about it not until DR OSEMU did a marvelous work for me that restored my marriage of 4 years by getting back my divorced wife just as i read on the internet. Am Brooklyn Gray from USA. I was truly shocked when my wife knelt down pleading for forgiveness to accept her back. I am really short of words to use to show my appreciation to DR OSEMU. For his a God sent to me and my entire family for divine restoration of marriage.
