Mayor Bloomberg insisted yesterday that city morgue workers had every right to seize the body of an NYPD cop from a funeral home and expunge references to 9/11 toxins from his death certificate.

"The bottom line is that if the law requires, for nonnatural causes, to do an investigation, that's what it's going to be . . . I'm sorry that anybody felt upset about it," Bloomberg said.

Relatives of cancer-stricken retired Officer George Wong held a belated funeral yesterday, saying they still hadn't heard directly from city officials apologizing for having plucked the officer's body from the Ng Fook funeral home Monday night.

FINAL RESPECTS: Officers yesterday carry the casket of 9/11 hero cop George Wong. Right, how The Post broke the story of city morgue workers grabbing Wong's body from a funeral home for re-examination.

"I was really upset. They took the body again to cut it or whatever," Wong's mother, Mei Sin Wong, 73, said through an interpreter. "It's not respectful for the Chinese people."

Facing accusations they carted away the body of a dead cop to prove he didn't die from a 9/11-related illness, city officials claimed Wednesday they're not body snatchers - just bureaucrats.

George Wong, 48, died last Thursday of gastric cancer - and his doctor listed his cause of death as a result of "9/11 toxic exposure."

Mayor Bloomberg said the city was simply following the law when workers snatched the cancer victim's body from a Manhattan funeral home Monday, causing Wong's funeral to be postponed a day.

"When there is a death that the death certificate says is not of natural causes, the medical examiner is required by law to go and to perform whatever they think is appropriate," Bloomberg said.
