European investigators have been pursuing the global organ black market for years. Here, police escort Turkish doctor Yusuf Sönmez to a local court in Istanbul in January 2011. He was suspected of carrying out illegal organ transplants in the clinic in Kosovo and is thought to have performed the operations on Vera and Walter. His nicknames are Dr. Frankenstein and Dr. Vulture and he has boasted of having transplanted some 2,200 kidneys.
