After the incident of live harvesting of human organs from abducted Falun Gong practitioners at the Sujiatun Concentration Camp was revealed, "World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong" (WOIPFG) immediately launched its urgent investigation process. Due to the ongoing nature of the investigation, the result will be published in several phases. This is the Phase 1 of the systematic investigation report.

Based on the preliminary investigation, it had been verified that there is indeed a very large "market" for human organs in the Sujiatun area, Shenyang City, Liaoning Province. From the death concentration camp where "organ supplier" prisoners were abducted, to tissue type matching, organ removal procedures, disposal of the corps, all the way to the hospitals that were the final customers of the organs (not necessarily at Sujiatun), a systematic operation has been established and put in place. This is another totally separate system, above and beyond the illicit operation reported by world wide human rights organizations on harvesting "death row" prisoners, even determining how the execution should be performed based on the organs to be harvested in China. The Falun Gong practitioners whose organs were harvested were abducted without any legal due process, completely isolated from the society, no one knew their whereabouts and disposal, and their bodies were immediately cremated after their organs were harvested so that no trace were left behind.

The operation at Sujiatun Concentration Camp started in 2001, and reached its peak in 2002. The Concentration Camp was located near a particular hospital in Sujiatun. The whole facility was underground, and was modified from what was originally a "civil air defense" (underground air defense fortification facility) and other ancillary underground facilities. At least one entrance was located at the rear entrance of said hospital. There was nothing appeared out of ordinary above ground. This establishment was a high security area that is totally closed off. It has its own supply system, including underground shops.

A large number of Falun Gong practitioners were secretly abducted to this place and detained ever since. Eye witness described the situation as "despicable and abhorrence beyond human words." Because there was no time line as scheduled execution, the removal of organs was entirely determined by the schedule of the final customer hospital. Harvesting the organ was done live. Because the entire procedure was extremely cruel and callous, a high percentage of doctors and other medical professionals who were involved in this operation contracted severe mental disorder syndrome. Many experienced insomnia and nightmares. Some tried to reduce the psychosomatic pressure through prostitution. There were even cases of suicide because of the significant mental disorder.

The trail of organs from live prisoners at this concentration camp involved receiving patients, the military and regular local hospitals who carried out such organ transplant procedures, associated logistic and supply chain, etc. Even though organizations and individuals that participated were sworn to strict secrecy, there were enough people who gained partial knowledge of what was going on. Many high level government officials in Shenyang City and Liaoning Province, especially those who were working at the Health Administration organizations, were all knowledgeable parties and accomplices. The establishment, control and administration of this operation, however, were under direct orders from the Central Authorities of the CCP and the Government.

Due to the ongoing nature of the investigation and to protect the source of information and method of obtaining such information, we have withheld the reference information in this report until further notice.
