For each of the years Oct 16 to Sep 17, Oct 17 to Sep 18 and Oct 18 to Sep 19, how many instances of organ trafficking, and harvesting have been detected?

Offences of Organ Trafficking and Harvesting would be recorded crimes under the Human Tissue Act (2004). A search of MPS crime systems for all offence codes under this Act for the date period requested produced a null return, i.e. the MPS have not recorded any offences under this Act. A similar search was performed for allegations (unconfirmed offences, or initial classifications): again, this produced a null return.
