Foreword

Since March 9, 2006, the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG) has collected a large amount of evidence from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Political and Legislative Affairs Committee, and organ transplant centers and hospitals of military, armed police, and local government in 30 provinces, metropolitan cities, and autonomous regions in Mainland China. These pieces of evidence collectively confirm that the CCP has been harvesting organs from live Falun Gong practitioners and experimenting on live human bodies.

Moreover, this evidence reveals the disturbing fact that the CCP’s organ harvesting practices of live Falun Gong practitioners are not individual, isolated, occasional murder-for-money cases. Rather, they are widespread, state-orchestrated, systematic mass-killing and genocide across the whole country, plotted directly from the highest-level Communist leaders, including Jiang Zemin and Zhou Yongkang.

Orchestrated and protected by top government and party officials, members of the judiciary, military, armed police and medical institutions have been involved and implicated in these crimes. The crime sites of organ harvesting from live Falun Gong practitioners are primarily the military- and police-owned hospitals and organ transplant centers.

WOIPFG obtained evidence that indicate that the committed crimes involve related hospitals and transplant centers in at least 23 provinces, cities and autonomous regions: Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, Hebei, Henan, Shandong, Liaoning, Jilin, Heilongjiang, Anhui, Hunan, Hubei, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Guangzhou, Guangxi, Fujian, Sichuan, Yunan, Guizhou, Shaanxi, Gansu, and Xinjiang.

This evidence taken together provides a picture that is consistent and compelling. The way the parts all fit together reveals a systematic crime that enables us to understand the nature and extent of its evil. These crimes are outside the scope of normal human thinking.

The atrocities, which began in 2000 and continue today, must be stopped immediately. The WOIPFG urges the international community to help end the genocide and bring the criminals to justice.

The report contains 21 telephone investigations and selected investigative reports.
 

 

 

Part I. Telephone Investigations

From these audio recordings, people can hear:

  • Bai Shuzhong, former Minister of Health for the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) General Logistics Department, admitted that Jiang Zemin, former Chinese Communist Party Chief, had “instructed” the harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners’ organs for transplantation.
  • Former Minister of National Defense, Liang Guanglie admitted that the Central Military Commission held meetings to discuss the issues about Falun Gong practitioners detained by the military and that the military hospitals were involved.
  • Someone who served as an armed police guard on the site of organ harvesting from a Falun Gong practitioner and witnessed the whole process of organ harvesting from a live Falun Gong practitioner
  • kidney broker representative for People's Liberation Army (PLA) No. 307 Hospital in Beijing emphasizing officials, police and prison operation of the trading of organs from Falun Gong practitioners is like a supply line and they can also provide information that confirms that the supplied organs come from Falun Gong practitioners
  • Police from the first division of criminal law at the Intermediate People's Court of Jinzhou clearly show that organs of Falun Gong practitioners are available if the condition of the price is good.
  • Chief of Urology Chen Rongshan from the PLA (People's Liberation Army) 205 hospital emphasized that Falun Gong practitioners’ organs come from courts. He repeatedly assures that he will not disclose the secret of organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners.
  • From the head doctor of Organ Transplant Center from Beijing, Tianjin, to organ transplant hospitals’ doctors from Shanghai, Wuhan, Guangxi, from north to south across the country, they all have admitted bluntly to the use of Falun Gong practitioners as organ donor, and also that organ transplant surgery can be implemented in 1-2 weeks. A doctor answers a question asked by a patient in Shanghai Zhongshan Hospital: "Are there any organs from Falun Gong practitioners?..." Answer : " What we have here is all this type";
  • Beijing Political and Legislative Affairs Committee (PLAC) employee whose family name is Li answers the question of WOIPFG investigator about organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practtioners which is a state top secret. “Above bureau-director level they know about this state secret.”
  • An official of the "610 Office" confirms to WOIPFG investigator that 610 is a criminal organization, “Gu Kalai  was selling organs of Falun Gong.” Gu Kalai  traded cadavers and “they are not just from Falun Gong practitioners."
  • Finally, Li Changchun, propaganda chief of the CCP, speaks about the matter of organ harvesting from live Falun Gong practitioners. Li Changchun said: “Zhou Yongkang is in charge of this specifically. He knows it.”

 

Investigative Audio Recording 1: Bai Shuzhong, former Minister of Health for the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) General Logistics Department, admitted that Jiang Zemin Ordered the Harvesting of Organs from Falun Gong Practitioners for Transplantation.

In September 2014, WOIPFG investigated Bai Shuzhong, former Minister of Health for the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) General Logistics Department. The investigation focused on the Chinese military’s involvement in the live organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners. During the investigation, Bai Shuzhong admitted that Jiang Zemin, former Chinese Communist Party Chief, had “instructed” the harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners’ organs for transplantation. Bai said in a telephone investigation, “Back then it was Chairman Jiang … there was an order, a sort of instruction, that said to carry out such things, organ transplantation. … Because back then after Chairman Jiang issued the order, we all did a lot of anti-Falun Gong work …” “….that is to say, it was not just the military who was doing kidney transplants ….” 

This investigation result directly points to Jiang Zemin, who ordered to harvest organs from Falun Gong practitioners. This is genocide implemented by Jiang Zemin and other high ranking CCP officials. This is genocide carried out by the CCP controlled state apparatus. This genocide takes the form of live organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners. Under the secret protection of the CCP, Chinese judicial system, military, arm police forces and local hospitals colluded in this Crime against Humanity and Crime of Genocide.

Investigator: ah,
Liang Guanglie: ah, the second is that what you talked about; I am not in charge of it.

Investigative Audio Recording 3: Testimony from armed police guard onsite witness[1]

This is the testimony from an armed police guard who worked for the public security (police) system of Liaoning Province. He participated in guarding the organ harvesting process from a Falun Gong practitionerand witnessed the organ harvesting from a live Falun Gong practitioner 8 years ago.

  (Download record:MP3 )

Event Replay: In 2002, the witness was working for the public security (police) system of Liaoning Province and he participated in illegal arrests and torture of Falun Gong practitioners. Among themwas a female Falun Gong practitioner in her 30s who had wounds and scars covering her entire body, after one week of severe torment and forced food intake. On April 9, 2002, a certain office of the Public Security Bureau of Liaoning province sent two military surgeons, one being a military surgeon from the General Hospital of Shenyang Military Region of People's Liberation Army and the other one being a military surgeon graduated from the Second Military Medical University. They transferred this practitioner to another place (Note 1). Under the circumstances that this female practitioner was fully conscious, without using any anesthetics, they harvested her heart, kidneys and other organs. The witness was an armed police guard by that time and witnessed the entire process of live organ harvesting.

Excerpt from the conversation recording

Witness: A scalpel, a surgical knife at the chest. When it cut the chest, blood gushed out. It was gushing out, not…
Question: Is the person you saw male or female?
Witness: Female.
Question:  Young?
Witness: Maybe in her 30s.
Question:  Please describe what she was saying at that time.
Witness:  At that time, we had been interrogating and severely torturing her for about a week. She already had countless wounds on her body. Also, [we] used electrical batons to beat her. She had already become delirious. She was already beaten to .... Since she refused to eat anything, we forcibly poured milk into her stomach. She didn’t want to drink, so we forced it down. You know, when her nose was pinched, because of her basic human instincts, she had to drink the milk. Therefore, her life was maintained that way, but she lost almost 15 jin [equivalent to 7.5 kilograms] within seven days. However, we didn’t know at this time, it was possibly a certain office in the Public Security Bureau of Liaoning Province [anyway, it was a very secretive office] that sent two people over. One of them was a military surgeon from the General Hospital of Shenyang Military Region of People's Liberation Army [PLA], and the other one was a graduate of the Second Military Medical University. Specifically, one of them was relatively old, and the other one was young. They were doing something to her in an operating room of the mental hospital she was sent to. No anesthetics were used. They cut her chest with a knife without shaking their hands. If it were me, I would be shaking. Although I am an armed police, I held guns, I participated in live ammunition maneuvers, and I had seen many corpses, but when I saw these military surgeons, I was really impressed. Their hands didn’t shake at all; they put on their surgical mask and started cutting immediately. At that time, we [armed policemen] were standing on guard each with a pistol in hand. Then she shouted, saying “Falun Dafa is good”.
Witness: She said “you kill me, one individual.” [I think] it roughly meant “you kill one individual like me. Can you kill several hundred millions of us, people that are being persecuted by you for our true belief?” At that moment, that doctor, that military surgeon hesitated. Then he looked at me, then at our [policemen’s] superior. Then our superior nodded, and he continued to do the vessels… [Her] heart was carved out first, next were the kidneys. When her cardiac vessels were cut by the scissors, she started twitching. It was extremely horrible. I can imitate her scream for you, although I can’t imitate it well. It sounded like something was being ripped apart, and then she continued “ah”. Since then she always had her mouth wide open, with both her eyes wide open. Ah… I don’t want to continue.(Certain parts omitted.)
Witness: At that time, this person was a teacher, an instructor teaching in a high school. Her son should be almost 12 years old by now. Her husband was quite incapable [didn’t have much power]. Maybe he was a factory worker. Prior to this, she suffered even greater humiliation. Many of our policemen were perverted. They were using pincers and other equipments that I don’t know from where they got them, to molest her. I have witnessed all these with my own eyes, but I regret that I didn’t take any photos. She had some good looks, relatively pretty, [so the policemen] raped her…this was far too common.
Question:  This is what you witnessed in the police station where you stayed…?
Witness:  I didn’t stay in a police station. I was in a training center, which was the backyard of a hotel. [The policemen] rented ten rooms in a small building. They would do this in a small mansion.
Question:  A black jail?
Witness:  More or less so.
Question:  As long as they are Falun Gong practitioners, they were sent there?
Witness:  Yes.
Question:  Even before they were tried, they were sent there?
Witness:  Anyway, we [policemen] always change places on a short notice.(Certain parts are omitted.)
Question:  You haven’t told me the specific time.
Witness:  It was April 9, 2002.
Question:  April 9?
Witness:  Yes, the operation started from 5 p.m. on April 9 and lasted three hours. Before that, it continued for a month.
Question:  What do you mean by “it continued for a month”?
Witness:  Our interrogating and torturing of her lasted for a month.(Certain parts are omitted.)
Question:  Did you torture them once in the interrogation process to extract information or many times?
Witness:  Many times. At that time, Wang Lijun, nowadays the chief of the Chongqing Public Security Bureau ordered us “must eradicate all”.

Note 1: During the first conversation, in order not to expose himself, the witness didn’t specify the location where the live organ harvesting took place. In the second conversation, the witness clearly indicated that the live organ harvesting took place in an operating room on the 15th floor of the General Hospital of Shenyang Military Region. It has been confirmed that the 15th to 17th floors of the General Hospital of Shenyang Military Region are used for surgery.

 

Investigative Audio Recording 4:  Kidney broker representative for People's Liberation Army (PLA) No. 307 Hospital in Beijing emphasizes officials, police and prison operation of the trade of organ from Falun Gong practitioner is like a supply line and they can also provide information that confirms that the supplied organs come from Falun Gong practitioners [2]

Following are excerpts from the phone conversation between WOIPFG investigator andChen Qiang, a kidney broker representative for PLA 307 Hospital in Beijing city (A: Chen Qiang, B: Investigator)
B:  Hi
A: Hallo, Are you Xiaochen?
B:  Hi
A: Are you Chen Qiang?
B:  Yes I am. Speak.
A: Hallo. Last time I talked to you about contacting the kidney supply sources. How is it going?
B:  You meant that, contacting the prison, or “that something”?
A: Yes, the source of Falun Gong practitioners, I meant. …
B:  I’ve heard it’s now very strict.
A: Where did you get it before?
B:  It was from Xichen (A place in Beijing).
A: Xichen, you now--- By the way, how could you be so sure he (the source) was a Falun Gong practitioner? Did you find out for sure?
B:  How to positively identify a Falun Gong practitioner, well, when the time comes --- when the time comes then our side, our Boss will have people showing you information, you know. He will show you the information and data. You can be sure. We have connections with government officials. There are connections to high ranking officials. You know, I will show you such material even if you don't ask me for it. You know.
A: OK. Ah… There is one more thing that I don't quite understand. That is to say, these people are detained in forced labor camps or prisons. Normally, I know that they are in the police station …
B:  Right now, there are fewer in the forced labor camps.
A: Really, where are they usually detained now?
B:  Now they are in prisons. Normally, they were sent away from Beijing and from there transferred to other places.
A: I heard from others that, several years ago, they arrested many Falun Gong practitioners who did not give their names after they were detained, quite a few; they detained them underground, the kind of place that was neither a prison nor a labor camp…
B:  You are talking about what was going on around 2003. I know exactly what you are talking about. They did not reveal their name starting from 2003.
A: Oh, so there were more cases around 2003?
B:  Of course. There were tons of Falun Gongs on file around 2003.
A: You see, the 50.000 as said before is no problem. I will give you 20.000 yuan more and hope you take it serious. Later you just tell me how much money you spent, you can just tell me an amount.
B:  This thing, I also need to use contacts to find it for you. The money they ask, I think it will be around 200.000 yuan, you know.
A: Yes.
B:  Falun Gong---- Last time I made some inquiries by calling around … Later I contacted [the labor camp or prison officials] by phone. I asked my boss to call [the official], and [that official] said they will obtain the organs from “the inside [the labor camps or prisons].”
A: Oh.
B:  Now [the Falun Gong practitioners] were all transferred to remote prisons. They [the officials] need to get the organs from there; that takes money. Lots of money must be paid to people over there, you know.
A: yes. You know that several years ago, they secretly detained many Falun Gong practitioners who went to appeal but did not provide their names. There were no records, no registrations.
B:  It is quite normal, you know … If the Falun Gong practitioner did not give his name, he would be given a number, understand?
A: Yes.
B:  If they could not find out the real names, they just left code numbers, you know.
A: Yes.
B:  and also according to their fingerprints, you know, things are like this way now. (missing something)
A: Yes.
B:  After such a thing is done, I tell you. It is not that I want to tell you something. Oh, some details such as the names of some people, I cannot tell you, you know.
A: Yes.
B:  Like our boss, like the connections to the detention centers, I cannot tell you. What you said I cannot take casually. How can it be casual? We have the contacts. Since we are doing this business, we have people in every department. How can you get it done without connections?
A: Yes. I am just…
B:  Such an operation is like a supply line, you know.
A: right

Following are excerpts from the recorded conversation between the WOIPFG investigator and Guanxi National hospital Urology transplant doctor Lu Guoping


Lu Guoping

Doctor Lu Guoping introduction: No 3. Affiliated Zhongshan Hospital
(Investigator, Lu: Lu Guoping)

About this case, the CCP also provides evidence that makes Organ Harvesting undeniable. A TV film made by a Hongkong Chinese satellite TV Channel was spread to the world by Chinese consulates in Canada in 2008. Based on the goal of the TV film, to deny the organ harvesting from live Falun Gong practitioners by the CCP, the film presents some interviews with some “witlessness”. In the TV film, Guangxi National hospital doctor Lu Guoping admits that the telephone interview on 22th, May, 2006 is really with him. The video of the TV film was disseminated by Chinese embassies and consulate, so its authenticity is recognized by the Chinese government.

Investigator: hello, it’s not them....
Lu: hello, yes....
Investigator: Doctor, I trust you very much,  I trust you a lot. , They are all using organs from Falun Gong practitioners now, aren’t they?
Lu: We don’t have it any more. It is more restricted now.
Investigator: You used organ from Falun Gong practitioners before.
Lu: It’s not the same as before anymore.
Investigator: Your hospital has used it before, right? They supply it to you, right? Since I know the surgery technique of the Guangxi National hospital is relatively good. That’s to say, you used it before, why couldn’t you use it anymore? I would like to ask if it is possible to find organs from Falun Gong? If you can find that, then I will come. Can you find it?
Lu: Let me tell you that we cannot get it. If you want to get it from Guangxi it will be more difficult. If you want to get it quickly, I suggest you to go to Guangzhou. They can get organs very easily. They can search all over the country. When they are doing a liver transplant then can get a kidney for you in the meantime. So they can get an organ very easily. So a lot of places cannot get it, they only can ask them (Guangzhou) to get it.
Investigator: Tell me the one in Guangzhou. When you help me, I will thank you.
Lu: ok
Investigator: ah
Lu: ok. I will tell you and then I will tell you the phone number of the doctor from the other hospital.
Investigator: Which hospital is it?
Lu: I tell you the number. Please wait 30 seconds. I go to get the phone number.
Investigator: thank you, afterward I will thank you.
[waiting]
Lu: hello.
Investigator: hi
Lu: hello, hello
Investigator: yes, yes
Lu: First write down the number of the doctor. 13609038255
Investigator: 3825
Lu: 38255
Investigator: ah, 255. 13609038255
Lu: Yes, yes. It’s the No. 3 affiliated hospital of Sun Yat-sen University.
Investigator: Is this from Guangzhou?
Lu: yes right
Investigator: No. 3 affiliated hospital of Sun Yat-sen University.
Lu: yes
Investigator: What is the name of the doctor?
Lu: Doctor Miao
Investigator: Miao what?
Lu: Miao Bing
Investigator: Is he from liver transplant?
Lu: From kidney transplant. Because the liver and kidney transplants are on the same floor. They are together.
Investigator: Ah, they are together. How can they easily get it? Why are you not able to get it?
Lu: Because they have a good name. Since they contact the justice system in the name of the whole school.
Investigator: So are the donor bodies they use from Falun Gong practitioners?
Lu: yes right
Investigator: ok
Lu: You can also use the kidney from your family, or use a kidney from a dead body.
Investigator: Yes but he said the organ from Falun Gong practitioner is healthier and better. Is it that they all use this type?
Lu: Yes, normally the healthy one is chosen for the transplant.
Investigator: I mean, is the donor body from Falun Gong practitioner healthier, is it that they all choose of this type?
Lu: Yes. For details you can call to tell him. You say you are introduced by the National hospital doctor Lu. He was my university fellow schoolmate.
Investigator: Oh, you are his schoolmate, your name is Lu? I can tell him about you.
Lu: yes, Lu.
Investigator: Lu is from Lu xun (A Chinese name)?
Lu: No. Lu is from Lu shan (A famous Chinese mountain).
Investigator: Lu from Lu shan.
Lu: Lu guoping. Guo is from country (In Chinese, country pronounce “Guo”), Ping is from Deng Xiaoping.
Investigator: Lu Guoping. Doctor Lu Guoping
Lu: When you call him and say you are introduced by me, he will help you. We are schoolmates.
Investigator: Yes. Afterward I will thank you.
Lu: Ok, you can contact him.
Investigator: Ok. Did he help you (find organs) before? Did he help you to find this type (Life organ)?
Lu: Yes, yes, yes, every week they have many shipments because they do a lot (transplants) they have their connections.
Investigator: ah, they have good connections.
Lu: Because in the mainland China, basically every hospital can do it. But why some hospitals don’t do transplants? It’s because they cannot get organs.
Investigator: ah, but only they (Guangzhou) can find it. Where should they go to find? Do they find it from local or other places?
Lu: All over the country they have  their own   suppliers.
Investigator: O they have suppliers all over the country. So...
Lu: They have a special team that is looking for it.
Investigator: I see. They are all looking for organs from Falun Gong practitioners? Those healthy ones?
Lu: yes, yes, yes.
Investigator: O, ok. Doctor Lu do you have mobile phone? Give me your mobile number. I can contact you in the future when there is something; introducing patients to you I can contact you.
Lu: Ok, 13607710447.
Investigator: 0447.
Lu: Right
Investigator: 13607710447.
Lu: I can contact him. He has it over there. Basically, they are all my friend.
Investigator: O they are all your friend. You know this patient is  my family, She’s my child, my daughter. I care a lot about her. Hope to find a healthy one. Your hospital is also using donor bodies from Falun Gong practitioners, isn’t it? You used it before right, in 2001, in these years...
Lu: Yes we did, the point is that it’s very hard to get...
Investigator: It was very easy to find before, isn’t it?
Lu: For this thing you need to have connections in order to find it. You need to have connections and give money to all parties in order to get it. So the fee will be higher. They can get organs for wholesale price  you know?
Investigator: Wholesale price? For example the ones you used before, where did you find it? Did they come from a detention center or from a prison?
Lu: From prisons.
Investigator: From prisons, those are all healthy ones from Falun Gong, aren’t they? Healthy Falun Gong practitioners?
Lu: yes exactly, of course choosing the good ones. Because when doing such a thing quality has to be guaranteed.
Investigator: So it is to say you will choose it by yourselves?
Lu: yes
Investigator: So does your hospital do a lot?
Lu: Because our hospital cannot get it, so these few years basically we don’t do it. Because they have a special room to do it, because they do a lot, know how to do it, you know? So they quality will be better.
Investigator: Ah, better quality. O, this type....
Lu: Because we do a few, we can do it however we do less this year.
Investigator: No, in 2001 it was very easy to find Falun Gong one. This type of supply body was easy to find.
Lu: No, now it is like this. You can go to contact them.
Investigator: It’s easy to find over there, when I go, I just need to tell that you introduced me and they can find it, right?
Lu: Yes, right.
Investigator: Do you think they can find a donor body from Falun Gong for me?
Lu: IF you go there it shouldn’t be a problem at all.
Investigator: They can find it?
Lu: I can tell you, it’s an easy job for them to get organs.
Investigator: Easy job?
Lu: Since they do seven or eight liver transplants a week they can do over ten kidney transplants a week. Every month they do dozens of transplants. So they don’t worry about getting organs.
Investigator: Did your schoolmates tell you he used the organs from Falun Gong practitioners, did he?
Lu: Some are from Falun Gong, some are donors from family.
Investigator: So it is to say, if I want to find one for my child, one from the Falun Gong, you think they can find it for me?
Lu: they can absolutely find it.
Investigator: They can find it? Your hospital did it before using donor bodies from Falun Gong, did you do a lot?
Lu: We did it before, but it is very hard to get. I’ve already told you, not every hospital can get it. For this kind of thing you need to have connections. Now this kind of organ is in shortage. That’s why some hospital can get it, and some not. It’s because of this matter.
Investigator: They need to contact the court first? Or directly contact labor camps or detention centers?
Lu: Yes of course, this kind of thing it’s not a hospital who can make the decision.
Investigator: So someone needs to give them money?
Lu: Yes you have to bribe them. How could it be that easy?
Investigator: Those donor bodies from Falun Gong, are they mostly male or female?
Lu: Normally, they have both male and female; they will choose one according to your matching.
Investigator: I know. What are their ages in between?
Lu: Normally, around their thirties.
Investigator: Around their thirties. Like you, you need to go to the prison to choose?
Lu: Yes of course, need to select.
Investigator: If you select and they don’t allow you to take a blood sample, what then?
Lu: They will absolutely allow it.
Investigator: How would they allow?
Lu: There are inspectors. What are you afraid to? There is no need for you to worry about this kind of thing, they have their operations.
Investigator: Will they know they will be organ donors, do they?
Lu: They don’t know
Investigator: They don’t know? You just don’t let them know? When they know they don’t let people take blood samples?
Lu: yes, yes, yes.
Investigator: But how will you convince him, he would say what you are taking blood samples for? What will you say?
Lu: They will have their way. This isn’t something for you to worry about. What you can do is just stay in the hospital and pay all the fees. You don’t have to worry about other things.
Investigator: I’m afraid they cannot find a donor body from Falun Gong.  I worry about this.
Lu: I can tell you, if they cannot find it, basically others cannot find is as well.
Investigator: Oh, that is to say they can find this kind of donor body from Falun Gong practitioners.
Lu: If they could not find it, almost nowhere can find one.
Investigator: Oh, I see. You mean that they surely can get organs from Falun Gong practitioners.
Lu: I would not recommend you to go there if they couldn’t find one.
Investigator: So when I prepare the money I can go to there. Then I say I’m introduced by you.
Lu: Ok, I need to go to carry out a surgery.
Investigator: If there is anything I will contact you anytime.
Lu: Fine
Investigator: Thank you. Thank you very much for helping me. Goodbye

Part II. Relevant parts of the Investigative Reports

1.Evidence of Live Organ Harvesting of Falun Gong Practitioners Collected from Chinese Medical Papers

WOIPFG analyzed over 300 medical research papers from over 200 hospitals in 31 provinces and municipalities in China. We have discovered that the descriptions about “donors” sex, age, health condition and cause of death, the procedure of organ removal, the data on organ’s warm ischemia time and cold ischemia time, and the timing when transplantations were conducted, prove the existence of large organ “donors” banks consisting of living persons. This new set of evidence also strengthens the previous conclusion of harvesting organs from living persons by the Chinese regime is real, and that very large numbers of captive and healthy Falun Gong practitioners were kept as living “donors.” Huge numbers of Falun Gong practitioners were killed on demand for their organs.

After analyzing a group of Chinese medical research papers, this report presents the following conclusions:

Of the so-called “donors”, who had their organs harvested, more than 90% were healthy young adult men of 20 to 40 years old. During their life time, they were physically fit with properly functioning internal organs; they had no hepatitis B, HIV, syphilis or any other infectious diseases, and no history of alcohol and tobacco use. This group of people supplied organs to the tens of thousands of transplants taking place in mainland China every year. It is absolutely impossible to get these organs from executed prisoners alone. The illegally detained Falun Gong practitioners are the live “donors,” whose organs were taken without consent to support the ever-growing transplant needs.

In mainland China, there is a large living “donor” bank. When a “donor’s” profile matches that of a recipient, the “donor” would be put to death in the process of organ harvesting at a predetermined time. This is the only explanation for the ultra-short wait time for transplant operations, the emergency transplants, and the transplants with preselected dates.

This report analyzes the organ transplant research papers published on Chinese medical journals. The analysis results suggest that a large proportion of the organ “donors” were still alive when their organs were being removed. The research papers’ descriptions of the organ harvesting processes and the numbers of “donors” can at least partially exclude the possibility that some “donors” were executed prisoners. However, the large number of illegally abducted and detained Falun Gong practitioners seem to be the most plausible main source of living “donors.”

2. Investigative Report on the Role of Chinese Military & Armed Police Hospitals in Live Organ Harvesting from Falun Gong Practitioners

Based on the information gathered by the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG), numerous hospitals in Chinese military (People’s Liberation Army, a.k.a. PLA) and Armed Police system have been involved in live organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners, genocide and persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. Since China’s army is run in a totalitarian manner and because of its unique political standing and autonomous status, their involvement has made the military’s persecution of Falun Gong practitioners especially brutal and secretive. A policy from Chairman of the Central Military Commission Jiang Zemin called to "ruin [Falun gong practitioners'] reputations, bankrupt [practitioners] financially, and destroy [practitioners] physically." This report reveals the existence of Jiang’s policy. Jiang's use of the state apparatus (including the army and armed police) commit a comprehensive and systematic genocide against Falun Gong.

The strategy of the Chinese military hospitals is: use “organ harvesting” to spearhead the improvement of other branches. . The huge income from organ transplants increased funding for the military budget. Military hospitals have been able to purchase new equipment and to have it upgraded. In the meantime, individuals have become rich through organ harvesting. This has greatly stimulated military and armed police hospitals to participate in the crime of live organ harvesting and transplanting.

3. Investigative Report: China’s Public Security Bureau’s On-site Psychology Research Center Implicated in Live Organ Harvesting on Falun Gong Practitioners [9]

Since the Chinese Communist regime began the repression of Falun Gong practitioners on July 20, 1999, it is believed that former police chief Wang Lijun had been actively involved in the persecution. In districts under his jurisdiction, there were large numbers of severe persecution cases, especially between May 2003 and June 2008, when Wang was the Chief of Police for Jinzhou City, as well as the director of the Public Security Bureau's On-Site Psychology Research Center (OSPRC). He is suspected to have played a major role in harvesting organs from live Falun Gong practitioners. Falun Gong practitioners were subjected to organ harvesting and drug injections. He also did research on the entire process of executing a death penalty by injection on Falun Gong practitioners.

Wang Lijun and his OSPRC received awards for two "outstanding accomplishments" on September 17, 2006. One of them is the "Research on Organ Transplantation from Donors Who Have Been Subjected to Drug Injection (Translator note: from the context, it's actually the execution by lethal injection)." This research project received the Guanghua Innovation Special Contribution Award from the China Guanghua Science and Technology Foundation, and received a research grant of 2 million yuan.

4. Figures from the Central Government about the number of organ tranplants show the brutal fact of genocide

Since the beginning of March 2006, witnesses have stepped forward one after another, accusing the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) of harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners and then cremating their bodies to destroy evidence. Accordingly, the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG) has launched investigation on the organ transplants in Mainland China, focusing mainly on the period of less than five years from 2001 to 2006.The investigation has shown that by early 2006, more than 90,000 organ transplants of various kinds had already been performed in China. The rapid development, the large number of surgeries, the vast geographical areas involved, and the very short times for the patients to wait for organ matching and then receive the surgeries, and so on, have all indicated that since 2000, a huge live organ bank has existed in Mainland China, which cannot be explained by the number of voluntary organ donations and the number of organs harvested from the executed death-row prisoners.

The number of organ transplant has increased tremendously after 1999 (the time when the persecution of Falun Gong started)

Fig1.  Total number of liver transplant through from 1977-2005

For example: According to a Xinhua Net report in Tianjin on February 7, 2005, in the first month of 2005, Tianjin First Central Hospital had already successfully completed 108 liver transplants (which, based on five days in a week, amounted to four to five liver transplant surgeries per day) and 43 kidney transplants.

List 1: The start of the persecution of Falun Gong in 1999 was the watershed for the increasing number of kidney transplants in China

For example: Han Xiuwu, a surgeon at the Organ Transplant Department of Beijing Haidian Hospital, completed two kidney transplants within 48 hours. Because of the patient's violent rejection of the first transplanted kidney, the first kidney transplant failed. After this, Han immediately brought back with him a new, matching kidney. The next day, he carried out the second kidney transplant surgery for the patient.

 

Average waiting time for kidney transplant surgery

China

7 days ~ 1 month

United States

3~7 years

List 2: Estimation in 2006 of the waiting time for kidney transplant surgery in China and US

 

Analysis: According to the analysis of Pang Yubin, a medical doctor, the matching process for a transplant is completely different in China compared to that of other countries. China uses a “reverse matching” system. In other countries, they use the forward matching system, which means the patient waits for the organ. Sometimes, it will take the patient several years to find a matching donor. In China, the reverse matching system is used, meaning that the organ is waiting for the patient. It is very clearly indicated on many Chinese hospital websites that they can find a matching donor within a week.

 

The number of organ transplants performed to meet the demand far exceeds the number of organs provided through the normal channels.

For the organs from non-family members, the chance of getting the tissue match is about 6.5%, the several thousand and even ten thousand organ transplant surgeries each year suggest that the tissue-matching organs have been harvested from over one hundred thousand or even hundreds of thousands living people, who are not family members of the patients. Family members in China who have donated their live organs accounts for 0.5%. There are only nine cases where the organs were from brain-death individuals. “According to tabulations constructed from the Amnesty International reports of publicly available information in China, the average number of prisoners sentenced to death and then executed between 1995 and 1999 was 1680 per year. The average between 2000 and 2005 was 1616 per year.
