Since 1999, international media has reported on the illegal, irrational and vicious persecution of Falun Gong practitioners by the CCP and since 1994 the US senate and international media has reported on the illegal organ harvesting from prisoners in China’s state-run prisons and labor camps.
The new human rights report alleges the increase in organ availability can be attributed to one fact: the execution of Falun Gong practitioners detained by the Chinese Government, who are then quite literally harvested for parts.
A human rights lawyer and a former cabinet minister in Canada have added their weight to charges that China has been killing Falun Gong dissidents so it can use their organs. They provided English transcripts of phone calls, in Mandarin, made to detention centres and organ transplant clinics in which officials said organs from Falun Gong practitioners could be made available for speedy use.
Former director of the Asian Pacific Division of Canada’s Foreign Affairs Ministry and member of Parliament, Mr. David Kilgour, and human rights lawyer, David Matas, released an independent report, concluding that the allegations that vital organs are being seized from Falun Gong practitioners in China are true.
A former Canadian cabinet member and a human rights lawyer issued a report overnight alleging China harvests organs from unwilling live prison inmates, mostly Falun Gong practitioners, for transplants on a large scale.
The Government of China released a statement in response to our report titled Report into Allegations of Organ Harvesting of Falun Gong Practitioners in China dated July 6, 2006.
We have these reactions to this statement:
A respected Canadian human rights lawyer and a former Canadian cabinet member lent their weight on Thursday to charges that China has been killing Falun Gong dissidents so it can use their organs.
A 45-page investigative report was released today in North America that addresses allegations of organ harvesting from Falun Gong detainees. Coauthored by former Canadian Secretary of State (Asia-Pacific) David Kilgour and human rights attorney David Matas, the report draws “the regrettable conclusion that the allegations are true.”
“The very horror makes us reel back in disbelief,” the report says. “But that disbelief does not mean that the allegations are untrue.”
Former director of the Asian Pacific Division of Canada’s Foreign Affairs Ministry Mr. David Kilgour talked with Chinese Embassy officials on Friday, June 23, 2006 about entering China to investigate the CCP’s live organ removal from Falun Gong practitioners. The Chinese official was evasive and dodged responsibility.
