When investigators in Canada began looking into allegations of forced organ harvesting on a mass scale in China, one of the ways they gathered information was making phone calls to the hospitals involved posing as patients needing an organ.
It was back in 2006 that former secretary of state David Kilgour and human rights lawyer David Matas uncovered evidence that Falun Gongprisoners of conscience were being killed on demand to supply China’s organ transplant industry.
Their subsequent report, titled “Bloody Harvest: The Killing of Falun Gong for Their Organs,” concluded that imprisoned Falun Gong practitioners were indeed being used to service a lucrative and burgeoning transplant industry.
One of the many methods the researchers used in their investigation was to call the hospitals in China where organ harvesting takes place and speak to medical professionals, assuming the identity of a transplant patient or the relative of someone in need of an organ. In many cases, those they spoke to admitted that they were sourcing organs for transplant from Falun Gong practitioners.
The following is a transcript of some of the recorded calls (translated from Mandarin) documented in the 2006 and 2016 reports as well as from the China Organ Harvest Research Center.
‘This Thing is Just Like A Supply Line’
Zhongshan Hospital Organ Transplant Clinic, Shanghai, March 16, 2006:
Investigator: So how long do I have to wait [for organ transplant surgery]?
Doctor: About a week after you come
Investigator: Is there the kind of organs that come from Falun Gong? I heard that they are very good.
Doctor: All of ours are those types.
Chen Qiang, a kidney source liaison at the People’s Liberation Army Hospital No. 307 in Fengtai, Beijing, April 10, 2007:
Investigator: By the way, how can you be so sure [the source] will be a Falun Gong practitioner? Can you find out for sure?
Chen: How to identify a Falun Gong practitioner? Well, when the time comes, then our side, our boss will have people showing you information. You can be sure. We have connections with government officials. There are connections to high-ranking officials. I will show you such material even if you don’t ask me for it.
Investigator: You know that several years ago, they secretly detained many Falun Gong practitioners who went to appeal but did not provide their names. There were no records, no registrations.
Chen: Yes, this is quite normal. If Falun Gong practitioners did not give their names, they would be given a code. If their names couldn’t be identified, there would be their code numbers. Also, one can be tracked by fingerprints. … Like our boss, like the connections to the detention centers, I cannot say casually. We have close relationships with them. Since we are engaging in this business, we have our people in each and every department. How can you get things done if we don’t have our connections? This thing is just like a supply line, you know?
Chief Physician Xu, Air Force Hospital of Chendu City, April 29, 2006:
Investigator: The patient emphasizes that he wants the organ of the young and healthy. The best is from those who practice Falun Gong. Will he have this kind of chance?
Investigator: Yes ?
Xu: He will have this opportunity.
Investigator: It should be from the young and healthy, who practice Falun Gong!
Xu: No Problem.
