Chinese Army harvesting body parts from imprisoned Falun Gong prisoners.
CHINA'S military is harvesting organs from unwilling live prison inmates, mostly Falungong practitioners, for transplants on a large scale - including to foreign recipients- according to a study.
The report's authors - Canada's former secretary of state for the Asia Pacific region David Kilgour and human rights lawyer David Matas - implicated dozens of hospitals and jails throughout China in July, after a two-month investigation.
Chinese officials denied those allegations.
The report released today said that it interviewed with organ recipients in more than 30 countries and also the Canadian Hospital Staff who provided post surgery treatment for patients who had surgery overseas in China. David Kilgour, Canada's former Secretary of State and the Human rights lawyer David Matas found from these interviews, that the People's Liberation army were heavily involved in these transplants procuring and approving these surgeries in China. Most of these surgeries were done in Military hospitals and the organs that was used were taken from Falun Gong practitioners (a minority religious group in China) held in prisons. This was done with high secrecy, no one know about it until this investigation. Chinese officials deny these allegations. There is no way to coerce China to investigate further or stop these inhuman practices. Neither UN will investigate nor the major countries will be interested in this case.
Based on the interviews with the hospital staff, a substantial number of Canadians have traveled to China from Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto and the report says the numbers are increasing in people getting these transplants from China. The irony is Canada sells large number of organ anti-rejection drugs to China and ask Pharmaceutical firms to stop exporting.
But the report concludes in the end, there is no way of prosecuting these patients, only Government can stop banning Canadians traveling to China to get these organ transplants.
