He said: “We only exhume bodies that are known to us because we must know the dead person when he or she was alive. We must also know his or her name as well as the mother’s name.

“Knowing the mother’s name of the dead person that we want to sell the body parts attracts extra cost from those that buy the human parts from us.”
