Who is responsible for stopping organ harvesting from executed criminals?
This November, the World Health Organization (WHO)
cited words from the deputy director of China Liver
Transplantation Registry Research Center, Wang Hai Bo, in its communiqué.
Wang said, Mainland China would develop a new organ
donation system which would replace the current system that relies on organs from executed criminals.
However, analysts wonder whether the CCP authority
can keep this promise, saying that the words are credible only if the CCP’s acts are open to public supervision.
According to a BBC report, the deputy director of China Liver
Transplantation Registry Research Center, Wang Hai Bo,
recently made comments addressing China’s organ
He said that the current system is not moral and sustainable
since it relies on organs from executed criminals.
Wang revealed that China would abolish this system
no later than early 2013.
Beijing lawyer Li Zhuang once cited one of his doctor friends
who said that,
“In order to keep organs fresh for VIP patients, we directly
removed the organs without using any anesthetics.”
Recently, Li further revealed that during the ‘striking black
forces’ movement in Chongqing, many failed to have a look at the bodies of their executed family members.
They hence questioned whether the bodies were complete
with all the organs before cremation.
Beijing independent producer Zhu Rikun remarked that it is
cruel and inhuman to harvest organs from executed criminals.
Zhu believes that the Chinese cannot trust whatever
the CCP authority says;
Public supervision has to be involved to monitor
whether the organ harvest has really come to an end.
Zhu Rikun, Beijing independent producer:” Now we can only
conclude that, if the (CCP) authority has really promised
to change the organ harvesting system, it must result from
some kind of pressure from public attention.
However, a more clear and transparent supervision system
If the CCP authority really wants to change the situation,
it should make whole process subject to some kind of supervision.
It is especially important to have the public and media involved.
Nothing will change if only oral promises are made.”
In April 2006, shortly after the crime of live organ harvesting
was first revealed, former Canadian Secretary of State
for Asia-Pacific, David Kilgour, and Canadian human rights
lawyer David Matas requested a visit to China’s forced labor camps and prisons for investigation.
However, they were refused by the CCP authority.
Zhu Rikun: ”If there is something that you are afraid of
letting others know or investigate, there must be some matter behind it.”
Shandong independent writer Gong Lei remarked that
the crime of live organ harvest committed by the CCP’s prison
and police systems had not been revealed for a long time.
This is mainly because there lacks effective supervision
over the rich and powerful in China.
Therefore you cannot expect the CCP to keep its promise.
Gong Lei, Shandong independent writer: ”It is hard to
handle the problem because it involves the whole regime instead of individuals only.
It is the CCP’s regime that protects the criminals
in a systematic way.
Therefore the regime has to be changed to completely
solve the problem.
A democratic framework has to be established which will
place all the powers under public supervision.”
In July, 2005, the CCP’s vice-health minister Huang Jiefu
acknowledged for the first time that 95% of the transplanted organs came from executed criminals.
However, in March 2006, the Foreign Ministry spokesman
Qin Gang said in a press conference,
“It’s completely untrue that China ever harvested organs
from executed criminals for the usage of transplantation;
such charges are fabricated to deceive the global media.”
The CCP authority further denied the fact several times
over the next few years.
But a China Daily report again revealed on August 26th, 2009,
that most transplanted organs are from executed criminals.
The organs harvested from executed criminals include
kidneys, livers, corneas and among others.
According to a recent interview of Huang Jiefu, statistics
of Ministry of Health, shows that until the end of 2009,
65% of transplanted organs are removed from dead
bodies which exclusively come from executed criminals.
In addition, the other 35% come from organ harvesting
of live bodies.
During the 21st UN Human Rights Council meeting in Geneva
this September, the editor-in-chief of The Epoch Times, Guo Jun, was invited to speak.
In her speech, Ms. Guo revealed to all the attendees how live
organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners took place in China.
All were completely shocked by the CCP’s atrocious crime.
On September 12, 2012, the U.S. Congress held hearings
on “Communist China harvesting organs of living religious and political dissidents.”
The US Congress members called the topic of the hearing
“the most evil crime taking place on this planet.”
As the truth of live organ harvest is widely exposed, Bo Xilai
was expelled from the CCP and removed from office on September 28th.
The party mouthpiece, Xinhua News Agency, once mentioned
that “Bo was also suspected to have committed other crimes,” which seems to be a mysterious hint.
