The man reportedly arrived in Rome on Thursday and presented the border officials his Israeli passport. The official noted that Gedalya was behaving anxiously and upon further inspection, discovered that the date of birth on the passport had been altered.

The 77 - year - old Israeli citizen was taken for questioning and his fingerprints were run in an international database, which revealed that he was wanted in Brazil. A search of his belongings further revealed that he was carrying multiple passports as well as a knife.

Gedalya has reportedly served as the leader of a human organ trafficking ring that offered poor people in Brazil to sell him their kidneys for $12,000. He is currently in an Italian jail and now reportedly faces extradition to Brazil.
