Human Trafficking Remains Returned

Monday 27th May / presented by Jeff Bullen

An ugly chapter of human trafficking and black-market trading of body parts in Western Australia has been laid bare, with the return of fourteen sets of human remains that were sold to Germany more than a hundred years ago.

The remains of an estimated two thousand people are yet to be returned, with a number of institutions around the world still holding on to skeletons of Australian people decades later.

Melbourne School of Population and Global Health Centre for Health Equity Indigenous Studies unit research fellow and Australian Heritage Council member Dr Lyndon Ormond-Parker joined RTRFM to discuss this issue and the possible ramifications of what actually went on a century ago.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander listeners are warned that the following interview contains vague reference to deceased persons.
