The whole illegal organ trading is revolving around Prof. Yehuda Jehuda Hiss
(also, Jehuda) (born
c. 1946) is the chief pathologist at the Abu Kabir Institute of Forensic Medicine and has held this position since
. Hiss has
also served as part of the faculty for the Terrorism and Medicine Program at the Institute for Counter-Terrorism (ICT) at IDC Herzliya and in the
Department of Pathology for the Sackler Faculty of Medicine at Tel Aviv
As director of the Institute at Abu Kabir, the only place in Israel and the occupied territories authorized to conduct autopsies in cases of
, Hiss conducted the autopsies of and authored the pathology reports for notable figures, including Yitzhak Rabin and Rachel
Corrie, among others. He was dismissed from this position after the legal system took up some of the charges against him. Investigations revealed that
Hiss had removed organs, bones and other tissues from corpses, against the expressed wishes of family, and had sold many of the organs he removed to
medical institutions and universities.[Source

As per Israel International News article: Infamous Chief Pathologist to Once Again Evade
In all of the 125 cases, Dr. Hiss and his subordinates removed organs, bones and tissue without the permission of, and in many cases, against
the expressed wishes of the families of the deceased.
According to evidence submitted in the past, Abu Kabir had a “museum of skulls” set up by Dr. Hiss that included the skulls of IDF soldiers that
had been shot in the head. He has also been investigated for selling organs and falsifying testimony.
Other alllegation including him in the past:
1. In July 2002, while Hiss was under police investigation for suspicions including the removal of organs from 81 deceased persons without
familial consent, the Supreme Court rejected a petition by the Movement for Quality in Government (MQG) demanding his suspension.
2.In August 1999, Jerusalem District Court Judge Ruth Orr sharply criticized him for testifying that a 12-year-old Arab rock-thrower died as a result
of a beating by Beitar security chief Nachum Korman three years earlier. She wrote that Hiss "was carried away by his desire to find the exact
cause of the death... and ignored important pathological findings that did not correspond with this desire."
3, Dr. Hiss’ name has turned up repeatedly in relation to controversial events in Israel’s history, including the investigations into the
Israeli government’s involvement in taking Yemenite children away from their parents in the 1950s, putting them up for adoption and the telling
the parents that the children had died.
4. Hiss has also been the subject of controversy regarding the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin. The police were asked to investigate
charges that Hiss altered Rabin's wounds and submitted false evidence to the Shamgar Commission that investigated the killing. In March 1999, a group
of Israeli academics presented findings showing that Hiss' pathology report contradicted other authoritative findings. Prof. Hiss had stated that
Rabin suffered no damage to his spinal cord, nor was he wounded by a frontal gunshot wound to the chest. But Dr. Mordechai Gutman's surgical report,
as well as taped testimony by Ichilov Hospital Director Dr. Gabi Barabash and former Health Minister Ephraim Sneh, indicate that Rabin's backbone was
shattered and that there was a frontal chest wound.
Now what is intresting is his defense backed up by the Institute in which he is Chielf Pathologist
The MQG had requested that former Rubenstein reconsider his decision not to indict Chief Pathologist Prof. Yehuda Hiss. Rubenstein had stated that
even if the Institute did not act properly, "there is no suspicion of corruption or profiteering on the part of Prof. Hiss, whose only interest
was the advancement of medical research."

Fabrication of circumstances surrounding fatal events is not uncommon in forensic medicine. Reasons for this may include financial gain, shame and
guilt. The use of a specific sociopolitical phenomenon as a fabricated scenario for lucrative purposes is reported. The importance of thorough scene
of crime investigation and documentation, as well as a meticulous autopsy in order to determine the manner of death is emphasized.
Other major incidents when Israel Govt. backed Health ministry "bailed" out Prof. Hiss.

According to the arrangement, the prosecution will request that Prof. Hiss receive only a reprimand for his involvement in the unauthorized removal of
parts from 125 bodies. In exchange, Hiss will admit to the acts. The plea bargain is subject to the approval of the court. In all of the 125 cases,
Dr. Hiss and his subordinates removed organs, bones and tissue without the permission of, and in many cases, against the expressed wishes of the
families of the deceased. According to evidence submitted in the past, Abu Kabir had a “museum of skulls” set up by Dr. Hiss that included the

Court rejected a petition by the Movement for Quality in Government demanding his suspension.
