A West German businessman said Sunday he plans to set up a base in Britain selling kidneys for transplant. Rainer Adelmann, who already carries out the trade in France and West Germany, said transplant patients would have to pay between $26,000 to $52,000 per kidney. "I take only 20%," Adelmann told Independent Television News. Controversy erupted earlier this month in Britain when poor Turks were reported to have been paid $3,500 to donate their kidneys.

Although the scheme to match broke but healthy people with the rich and ailing has infuriated West German government officials and state prosecutors, it is apparently legal.
