Health Ministry to Fund Reburial of Forensic Tissue


The Health Ministry told the Knesset Constitution, Law and Justice Committee, Sunday, that it would fund the reburial of tissue samples that had been stored for years at the Institute for Forensic Medicine in Abu Kabir, near Tel Aviv.

In a change of policy, the funding will apply to tissue to be buried with the body of the person from whom it was taken as well as tissue buried in a mass grave. An uproar was created when the tissue was discovered and the ministry wanted to bury it all together.
