Latest Report from the WOIPFG: Falun Dafa Practitioners are Still Being Killed for Organs
Between March 2014 and September 2014, the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG) has made phone calls and spoke with more than 1,000 transplant surgeons in 30 provinces and direct-controlled municipalities in China. The results show that:
1. Almost all hospitals capable of performing transplant surgeries across China are still actively recruiting patients, indicating that there is ample supply of donor organs. Many doctors promised to procure young, healthy and high-quality organs with wait time as short as one to four weeks.
Recorded phone messages:
1. Surgeon at the PLA No. 303 Hospital’s Organ Transplant Department: It’s very fast, ten days to two weeks, we do several kidney transplants every week, since we have the kidneys we also have livers…. usually no more than one month [wait time]. We would have [organs from donors with] blood types A, B and O, so there must be one that matches [with the patient].
Zheng Shusen, president of the First Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University Medical School: It depends, if you are lucky, one to two weeks, usually no more than one month…we have a case tomorrow, we have done dozens every month this year…
2. Hospitals across China still acknowledge having Falun Gong practitioners as organ sources, but sometimes less overt in response.
Zeng Wen, Associate Chief Physician of Cardiac Surgery at Anzhen Hospital in Beijing said, “We both know what the source is, I cannot give you specific information.” When pressed about whether Falun Gong practitioners are used as donor sources, he did not deny it and simply said, “I can’t talk anymore”.
Shen Zhenya, Director of Cardiovascular Surgery and Research Department at the First Affiliated Hospital of Suzhou University, said, “We are doing some cases every month. If you come here, the estimate is about two weeks or a little longer, we should be able to find the donor. Falun Gong (practitioners)…we also have, we did a case this year.”
The investigation proves once again, that almost nine years after live organ harvesting was first exposed in 2006, despite the international community paying close attention to this, the Chinese communist regime continues to slaughter Falun Gong practitioners while denying it in public. As of now, millions of Falun Gong practitioners are still being used as live organ donor sources and killed “on demand”. It is still possible for Falun Dafa cultivators to be slaughtered through live organ harvesting by the CCP at any time in mainland China!
The WOIPFG hereby calls on everyone for urgent actions to help end organ harvesting in China.

Investigator: Can I please speak to Director Sun?
Doctor: Can you call his office?
Investigator: Can I ask you questions about liver transplant?
Doctor: Sure, sure, what is your situation?
Investigator: If you can do it at your hospital, how long is the usual wait period?
Doctor: We are fast.
Investigator: Very fast?
Doctor: Yes, yes, only about ten days or two weeks before you get it.
Investigator: About ten days or two weeks?
Doctor: Because we do several cases of kidney transplant each week, if we do kidney transplants, we will also have livers, so that’s how it is.
Investigator: Yes, so with the kidneys, there would also be livers.
Doctor: Yes, if we have kidneys, we would also have livers…
Doctor: The average wait time is about two weeks, usually no longer than one month. We would have [organs from donors with] blood types A, B and O, so there must be one that matches [with the patient].
Investigator: So Director Sun makes the final decision on whether to proceed with the operation, right?
Doctor: Of course, and he will perform the surgery if it’s a go …He’s in control of the overall situation.
Case 2: Zheng Shusen, Director of the First Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University Medical School and Director of Key Laboratory of Combined Multi-Organ Transplantation, Ministry of Health: It would take approximately one to two weeks to perform (the surgery)…Several dozen every month…

Investigator: Hello, Director Zheng.
Zheng Shusen: Hello, hello.
Investigator: I just want to ask you, are you still the chief surgeon performing the liver transplants?
Zheng Shusen: Yes, I am the chief surgeon.
Investigator: So how long does the process take, from the patient being admitted into the hospital until when the surgery is completed? (I am asking this,) because we are from out of town. We don’t live here.
Zheng Shusen: Where are you?
Investigator: I’m calling from abroad; the patient is inside China.
Zheng Shusen: So the patient is in China, you are calling from outside China.
Investigator: Yes, I am seeking pre-surgery consultation on his behalf, so I can have a rough idea.
Zheng Shusen: If you are lucky, maybe, it would take approximately one to two weeks to perform (the surgery), if it’s fast.
Investigator: Ok, one to two weeks, what if I’m not lucky and it takes more time?
Investigator: It could be one month.
Investigator: So one month in unlucky scenarios.
Zheng Shusen: Right, right, right, right.
Investigator: So based on your experience, it should take no more than one month or two months at most to complete the surgery.
Zheng Shusen: Yes, two months at most, I’m sure there is space to schedule the patient.
Investigator: Oh, two months maximum.
Zheng Shusen: Shouldn’t take that long.
Investigator: Oh, it shouldn’t take that long. It shouldn’t take two months.
Zheng Shusen: No, it shouldn’t take that long. Right, right, right, right…So basically, tomorrow we have a case.
Investigator: Oh, tomorrow. How many cases have you performed since beginning of this year to now, for example, how many cases in these four months?
Zheng Shusen: You mean at our hospital?
Zheng Shusen: Several dozen cases since the first season this year, quite a few.
Investigator: Several dozen cases, so quite a few.
Zheng Shusen: Several dozen every month.
Investigator: Several dozen each month?
Zheng Shusen: Right, right, right, right. Last year, we did more than 200 cases at our hospital.
Investigator: Oh, more than 200 cases last year…

Investigator: Hello, Dr. Zeng.
Zeng Wen: Hello, who is this?
Investigator: I got your phone number from a friend; can I ask you questions about heart transplant?
Zeng Wen: Ok, go ahead.
Investigator: Do you still perform heart transplant surgeries?
Zeng Wen: Yes, I still do.
Investigator: What the patient’s family cares about the most is the successfulness of the surgery. So I want to ask you, besides the patient’s physical condition and his family [support], is the organ donor also very important?
Zeng Wen: Yes.
Investigator: If the family wants to know, is it possible to learn more about the health condition of the donor?
Zeng Wen: They (i.e. the donors) are all healthy. We screen all donors prior to the surgery.
Investigator: Ok, so there are indicators and screenings. Are there more details such as numbers, a detailed report with indicators? Is it possible for us to see that?
Zeng Wen: No.
Zeng Wen: No.
Investigator: So no? What if…
Zeng Wen: I think you know where most of the donors come from; I think you know that, so we don’t need to spell it out. So, it’s impossible to have that [report].
Investigator: I know, I’ve asked about it, because my relative works in a court, so [I know] many donors are…
Zeng Wen: Well…
Investigator: [They are] prisoners, right? The donors are Falun Gong (practitioners)…can you secure their organs for us?
Zeng Wen: Oh, I can’t talk anymore, bye.
Case 4: Shen Zhenya, director of Cardiovascular Surgery and Research Department at the First Affiliated Hospital of Suzhou University: Falun Gong (practitioner donors)…we also have, I think we had one case this year…

Investigator: Hello, is this Dr. Shen Zhenya’s office?
Investigator: Can I speak to Dr. Shen?
Receptionist: What is this about?
Investigator: I want to consult Dr. Shen about heart transplant; someone referred me to Dr. Shen.
Receptionist: Ok, so you are patient’s family member, right?
Receptionist: So it’s about heart transplant?
Receptionist: Let me see if Director Shen is here. Please hold.
Investigator: Thank you.
Shen Zhenya: Hello?
Investigator: Is this Dr. Shen?
Shen Zhenya: Yes, yes.
Investigator: Hello, I’m calling from overseas. I want to ask how long do I have to wait for an organ?
Shen Zhenya: Basically, right now we have [organs] every month. If you come, I think it’s a little over two weeks, and we should be able to secure the donor.
Investigator: So I’ve heard, are Falun Gong people healthier?
Shen Zhenya: Ah, that kind, now we have to get consent from them [if they choose to donate organs], but yes we do have these. But it’s less and less now.
Investigator: So, you still have access [to that type of organs]?
Shen Zhenya: Yes, we also have.
Investigator: So you also have.
Shen Zhenya: Yes, yes.
Investigator: How many? Any cases this year?
Shen Zhenya: About one case this year.
Investigator: One case…Ok, doctor, since we live abroad, we saw information from United Nations saying Falun Gong (practitioners’) organs were harvested live, which means without consent…
Shen Zhenya: That was a few years ago, many years ago, also you need evidence to prove that, so I think….[laughs]
Case 5: Lu Wei, deputy director of Transplant Department at Second Artillery General Hospital: We still do it, we used to have Falun Gong (practitioner) donors.
Date: November 1, 2014
（Audio download：MP3 )
Lu Wei: Who is this?
Investigator: Hello, director. So I have a relative suffering from hepatic failure. Does your hospital do liver transplants?
Lu Wei: Yes, he has to wait in line. We do it.
Investigator: How much is it?
Lu Wei: About 700,000 to 800,000 yuan [about US $111,982 to $127,979]
Investigator: So how is your technique? How many cases do you perform per year?
Lu Wei: Our technique is proven. We did 16 cases last year.
Investigator:…You guys did a lot in 2004.
Lu Wei: Yes, that was the peak time.
Investigator: So we have to wait. Why did you go from doing so many cases a year to so little?
Lu Wei: So now we have an issue with the donors…
Investigator: I heard many of the death row inmates were Falun Gong practitioners, and their organs were harvested live, is that true?
Lu Wei: That was a long time ago, it’s no longer taking place.
Investigator: Oh, so it took place before.
Criminally responsible hospitals and persons involved in these cases:
1. Sun Xuyong, Transplant Department at the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) No. 303 Hospital
Sun Xuyong is chief surgeon from the Transplant Department at the PLA’s No. 303 Hospital, member of the PLA Organ Transplant Committee, and deputy director of Guangxi Organ Transplant Committee. Between June 2003 and June 2005, he participated in 69 cases of liver and kidney excisions and three cases of combined excisions of liver, kidney, pancreas and duodenum. At the hospital, he participated in three cases of liver transplants, one case of combined liver-kidney transplant, and 113 cases of kidney transplant; he assisted another institution in 61 cases of liver transplant and 24 cases of kidney transplant.
Each year, the PLA’s No. 303 Hospital performs about 200 cases of kidney transplant, between 30 and 50 cases of liver transplant, and around 10 cases of combined heart-lung transplant. The hospital has been performing kidney transplants, liver transplants, heart transplants, lung transplants, multi-organ transplants and cornea transplants.
2. Zheng Shusen and the First Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University Medical School
Zheng Shusen is the president of the First Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University Medical School and the director of the Ministry of Health’s Key Laboratory of Combined Multi-Organ Transplantation. As of February 2014, He had led his transplant team to perform more than 1,400 liver transplants, as well as multi-organ transplants, combined pancreas-kidney transplants and 25 cases of combined liver-kidney transplants.
Zheng Shusen mentioned in an article that the Hepatobiliary Surgery Department at the hospital performed 46 emergency liver transplants between January 2000 and December 2004, and all of these patients received orthotopic liver transplantation within 72 hours after being admitted into the hospital.
The number of liver transplants at the hospital increased drastically after 1999. Only two cases of orthotopic liver transplant were performed at the hospital between 1993 and 1997, compared to 1,521 cases of liver transplants performed between 1999 and August 2014.
Between July 1977 and December 1999, the hospital performed 898 kidney transplants (903 cases/times), with an average of 40 cases per year. As of May 2012, the hospital had performed a total of more than 3,300 kidney transplants. Currently, 280 cases of kidney transplants are implemented at this hospital each year, which is a seven-fold increase after 1999.
3. Zeng Wen and the Cardiac Surgery Department of Anzhen Hospital in Beijing
Zeng Wen is the deputy chief surgeon at the No. 9 Cardiac Surgery Department of Anzhen Hospital in Beijing. As of April 2006, Zeng Wen had participated in 51 orthotopic heart transplants; the donors were all males aged between 21 and 43, with no cardiovascular disease or past history of significant organ conditions. The donors’ location was less than one hour from the hospital by car. Between 2006 and 2011, he participated in 12 cases of heart transplant, and the donors’ ages were between 28 and 44 years.
As of now, Anzhen Hospital has completed more than 200 cases of heart transplant.

Shen Zhenya is a professor and chief physician at Cardiovascular Surgery Department of the First Affiliated Hospital of Suzhou University. He is also the director of research and teaching.
Between January 2003 and June 2006, Shen Zhenya participated in 17 cases of allogenic single lung transplant at Shanghai Pulmonary Hospital. He participated in one case of combined heart-lung transplant on December 24, 2004. Between 2000 and 2006, he participated in six cases of harvesting organs from heart transplant donors. In June 2004, he participated in the harvesting of one left lung from an organ donor, who was 32 years old.
5. Lu Wei and the PLA’s Second Artillery General Hospital Transplant Department
Lu Wei is deputy director of Transplant Department at the PLA’s Second Artillery General Hospital.
Between 2004 and 2007, 103 cases of liver excisions were performed at the Second Artillery General Hospital. All donors were healthy young peoples. Rapid harvesting techniques were used and the warm ischemia times were between zero to five minutes.
Since 1999, Jiang Zemin, Zhou Yongkang and other high-ranking CCP officials have launched a nationwide genocide against Falun Gong practitioners. Under protection from the Politics and Law Committee, the extralegal 610 Office, the judiciary system, the armed police, the military and local medical institutions colluded and systematically committed crimes against humanity.
Hereby, the WOIPFG calls on all people to assist us in monitoring and tracking criminals responsible for live harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners’ organs, such as court policemen, surgeons, and organ brokers, as well as the directly-responsible officials from all levels of the government; and collecting information about them and reporting to the WOIPFG when they leave China and their relatives and assets hidden abroad.
On your reports, please clearly identify the suspect’s name, gender, occupation, main features (photos preferred), visiting country, city, reason for visit, whether he or she has illegally obtained assets abroad or business activities. Please report directly to the WOIPFG’s reporting mail box or send to us via other reliable channels.
Our principle is whoever committed the crime will be held responsible for the crime. If it’s a group crime, individuals involved in the group will be individually prosecuted; instigation of crime is the same as direct involvement. Based on this principle, all crimes ordered by the government will be tracked down to individuals, who will be held responsible for the crimes. All who participated in the persecution of Falun Gong will be subject to thorough investigation and prosecuted to the fullest extent of law.
The WOIPFG hereby warns those who have participated in the persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners: this persecution is genocide and a crime against humanity—the same type of crime that was committed by the Nazi war criminals. “Carrying out orders” cannot be used as an excuse for exemption from punishment; all participants are responsible. Confessing one’s crimes, forsaking darkness for a bright future, reporting on others’ crimes and striving to perform merits to redeem oneself are the only way out.
The World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG) was founded on January 20, 2003. Its purpose is to assist and facilitate the international community and criminal justice agencies, 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, and will take them to court for justice.
