New Horrors: #China Harvesting Muslim Organs in Concentration Camps - China is removing live organs from executed Uyghur Muslims & markets them as “halal” & distributes them to a network to wealthy Saudi clients & others 👎🇨🇳👎 @UyghurCongress @AidUyghur medium.com/@cjwerleman/ne…
This week, UK lawmakers warned citizens desperate for transplant operations that they could be unknowingly “playing a role in the profiteering of atrocities against inmates in the Communist government’s network if prisons and detention camps.”
The authors also observe how “another medical witness described being forced to administer blood tests of Uyghur political prisoners on behalf of a handful of ageing, high-ranking, Chinese Communist Party officials who needed tissue-matching organs.”
A UK panel has found the evidence and testimonies that have emerged during its investigations into China’s live-organ harvesting program so “overwhelming,” it took what Biter Winter has described as the “unusual step” of releasing interim findings before its final ruling.
Urumqi Int Airport has a Human Organ Transportation Green-Path, a channel to ship large numbers of human organs to international recipients. A claim supported by a picture showing a priority lane sign marked “Special Passengers, Human Organ Exportation Lane.”
China Southern Airline reported more than 500 organ transportations since Tohti gave the newspaper an interview in early March, according to the Uighur Times. The China Daily announced the airline had launched a “green passage” to transport what it claims are “donated” organs.
These crimes against humanity are every bit as horrific as they unimaginable, but given Uyghur activists have described to me & many others how Uyghur Muslims detained in concentration camps are being subjected to gang rapes, sterilization programs, systematic torture 📲.....
.... forced marriage to Han Chinese citizens, forced disappearances and executions, there’s every reason to believe claims of live-organ harvesting barely scratch the surface of what is the largest cultural genocide of Muslims in modern times.
Researchers, medical professionals, journalists & survivors from around the world gave testimonies before a tribunal in London on allegations of #OrganHarvesting targeting persecuted groups in #China (#FalunGong practitioners & #Uyghurs muslims). 👎🇨🇳👎 theepochtimes.com/uk-tribunal-he…
From April 6-7, 24 international witnesses, including researchers, doctors, journalists & survivors, gave testimonies to the tribunal on allegations of state-sanctioned organ harvesting targeting persecuted groups in China, including Falun Gong practitioners & ethnic Uyghurs.
The tribunal follows a three-day hearing that took place last December, when tribunal members passed a draft interim judgment concluding that forced organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience has taken place in China “on a substantial scale.”
Chaired by Sir Geoffrey Nice, who led the prosecution of former Yugoslavian President Slobodan Milosevic at the International Criminal Tribunal, the panel consists of 7 experts tasked with conducting the world’s first ever independent analysis of forced organ extraction in China.
According to legal counsel Hamid Sabi, the tribunal invited representatives from the Chinese regime, including top health officials and Chinese embassy officials in London, to participate in the hearings, but did not receive a response.
The US Department of State & other international experts estimate that China is holding more than 1 million Uyghurs, ethnic Kazakhs, & other Muslim minorities in a vast network of internment camps in Xinjiang, as part of a purported campaign to combat “extremist threats.”
Tursun said she was tortured under interrogation for three days in April 2017, after which she was transported—while hooded, cuffed, and shackled—to an exam room in a hospital.
Dolkun Isa, president of the World Uyghur Congress, told the Tribunal on April 7 that the organization has received first-hand evidence from former Uyghur detainees of widespread medical examinations inside the facilities & detainees taken from their cells & never returning.
“You have maybe a million and a half people who have all been blood tested and they’re in detention, and their families have lost sight of them,” Gutmann said.
Evidence indicates the Chinese regime is targeting this group for organ extracting, including accounts of DNA testing being conducted at the homes of Uyghurs in Xinjiang and the known construction of regional crematoriums &a dedicated lane for shipping organs at a local airport.
In 2016, Gutmann co-authored, with Canadian human rights lawyer David Matas & former Canadian Secretary of State David Kilgour, an in-depth report that found a huge discrepancy between China’s official transplantation figures and the number of transplants performed in hospitals.
By analyzing the public records of 712 Chinese hospitals that carry out liver and kidney transplants, the report showed that roughly 60,000 to 100,000 transplants are being conducted each year, far outstripping the officially reported number of 10,000 to 20,000 per year.
The shortfall, the report concluded, is made up by organs forcibly harvested from prisoners of conscience in China, primarily from practitioners of Falun Gong (also known as Falun Dafa), while Uyghurs, Tibetan Buddhists, and some house Christians also have been targeted.
“The evidence is overwhelming that this terrible trafficking of organs is taking place, and is increasing, in China,” said Kilgour, who testified at the tribunal on April 7. “There has been no been serious attempt [by the Chinese regime] to rebut or refute what we say,” he added.
Several Falun Gong practitioners gave evidence during the December & April hearings, speaking of their experiences of being detained for their faith in China. Aside from personal accounts of torture they all spoke of undergoing physical examinations during detention.
Feng Hollis, who was arrested in 2005, said in her December testimony that at the time, she wondered why she was given a medical test despite being frequently tortured in prison.
Two researchers who conducted an unprecedented study of China’s official voluntary donor transplant data told the Tribunal on April 7 that according to their analysis, the official data curiously aligned with a basic mathematical equation, suggesting that it was manufactured.
“We found many anomalies that are difficult, if not impossible, to explain without concluding that the data had been manipulated manually,” said Matthew Robertson, study co-author and doctoral student at the Australian National University.
The tribunal is due to release its final judgment on June 17, to determine whether international crimes have been, and continue to be committed with regard to forced organ harvesting in China.
