Ladies and Gentlemen: Greetings!

The persecution of Falun Gong has been ongoing for 16 full years. With a very heavy heart, I would like to inform you that the scale of forced live organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners is much larger than our previous understanding. The World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG) now estimates the number of victims at millions.

After investigating and collecting evidence for more than nine years, WOIPFG has concluded that since July 20, 1999, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), led by its former head Jiang Zemin, has utilized China’s entire state apparatus to harvest organs from living Falun Gong practitioners as part of Jiang’s campaign to “physically destroy” practitioners. This is genocide and a crime against humanity. We estimate that the number of victims exceeds two million.

Our investigation has covered 9,500 surgeons and 865 hospitals across China that are able to perform organ transplants.

The subjects of our phone investigations include five CCP Politburo Standing Committee members, one Politburo member, one vice-chairman of the Central Military Commission (CMC), one CMC member and former defense minister, one department head of the People’s Liberation Army General Logistics Department’s health division, officials from the “610” Office under the Political and Legislative Affairs Committee, an armed policemen guarding the scene of one live organ harvesting case, as well as transplant surgeons and organ brokers from many military and civilian hospitals across China.

Those high-ranking CCP officials confirmed that organ harvesting is a state-sanctioned crime under the command of Jiang Zemin.

Over the past decade and a half, the Party has systematized, industrialized, and even militarized this crime on a large scale. It has used the bodies of Falun Gong practitioners as a multi-use resource that can be liquidated.

They have used enormous economic incentives to motivate people to participate in these crimes. The CCP has involved and made complicit China’s military, armed police forces, and personnel within nearly all medical institutions across China that are capable of performing organ transplant operations, into participants in a massacre of Falun Gong practitioners.

At the same time, from the central government to the local, state, and Party institutions related to the Political and Legislative Affairs Committees, 610 Offices, public security, prosecutorial, and judicial departments across the country, all have participated in this criminal massacre.

This genocide has been being carried out under horrific circumstances in mainland China, where the CCP has willfully slandered and demonized Falun Gong practitioners over a long period of time. Chinese people have been brainwashed by the CCP’s bloody political campaigns and tools of repression. Jiang Zemin issued an internal policy that “beating [Falun Gong practitioners] to death wouldn’t be blamed on the guards—it’s recorded as suicide” and to “destroy them physically.” These atrocities, including forced organ harvesting, which this planet has never seen before, is taking place in China.

This massacre has also been enabled by the Party’s control of information and its deceitful propaganda toward the international community. In addition, it has used diplomatic, political, and military means. In particular, it has used enormous economic incentives and transactions as bargaining chips to win over and/or intimidate the international community. The CCP has induced governments around the world into silence. Some governments even demonstrate differing degrees of cooperation with the CCP in committing these crimes.

In fact, horrible crimes have again appeared in the world—shocking and deeply heart-wrenching to all who know of them. They challenge the fundamentals of humanity.

According to the United Nations’ Resolution 260 A (III), Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (CPPCG), and the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, the large-scale harvesting of organs from living Falun Gong practitioners, perpetrated by the Chinese Communist regime and led by former Party head Jiang Zemin, constitutes genocide and a crime against humanity.

WOIPFG hereby calls on the international society to help monitor and track down the court policemen, organ transplant surgeons, organ brokers, and CCP officials at all levels, who have participated in organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners. Please collect information on these people and directly send them to the WOIPFG’s reporting mailbox or via other reliable channels.

We call on all state governments, organizations and people around the world to track down and stop the CCP’s crimes against humanity and hold the CCP accountable for its persecution of Falun Gong.

We hereby warn those who have participated or are still participating in the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners: All participants in this crime will be held responsible.

WOIPFG will continue to investigate the criminal conduct of any institutions, organizations, and individuals that have been involved in the crime of persecuting Falun Gong practitioners, no matter how long it takes, no matter how far and deep we have to search. We will bring them to justice and restore and uphold justice in society.
