The Supreme Court of Pakistan has directed concerned authorities to immediately implement all directives and strategies, finalized in earlier conference, to control the illegal organ transplantation in the country.
A statement issued by the Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation (SIUT) said that “an SC bench comprising Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Saqib Nisar, Justice Umar Ata Bandial and Justice Ijazul Ahsan directed the authorities to implement the report in letter and spirit which was finalised at a conference held earlier at the SIUT on the directive of the CJP”. The statement cited the court directed transplantation units, ICU interventionist and coordinators to fulfill their professional obligations. Further print and electronic media asked to create awareness campaigns about deceased organ donation.
The Supreme Court (SC) earlier formed a four-member commission led by surgeon Dr Adibul Hasan Rizvi to formulate suggestions on how to control the illegal trade of human organs in the country, while hearing a suo motu case based on a letter addressed by Dr Rizvi, the director of the Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation (SIUT) at the SC’s Karachi Registry.
