[SOH Radio Network, April 13, 2006]:

Reporters from Sound of Hope Radio Network (SOH) have contacted major organ transplant centers in hospitals in China. Most of the medical doctors confirm that there would be an unusually large amount of organ transplants before May 1. One doctor confirmed the extraction of organs from Falun Gong practitioners while they were alive.

The Clearwisdom.net issued an urgent announcement on April 6, 2006 which states : "Falun Gong practitioners in underground concentration camps, including Sujiatun Camp, have been secretly relocated and are subject to slaughter at any time. Meanwhile some hospitals in China have suddenly increased the number of transplant operations. There is a massacre apparently taking place right now aimed at exterminating all the witnesses of such extermination camps in China."

Reporter Ms. Mei Tang from SOH called organ transplant centers in Hubei Province, Shanghai, Liaoning Province, Beijing, Shanxi Province and many other regions and received similar answers from doctors (MD). The following are excerpts from phone conversations.

Doctor S from Changzheng Hospital in Shanghai: "April. We should have a substantial number of organs before the end of April. We are receiving them more and more frequently, but you have to grasp the opportunity. Do you understand what I mean? After this period of time has passed, the supply will diminish significantly to the point where we will be left with nothing. If you don't have an organ transplant when there is supply, you are leading yourself to a dead end when the supply runs out."

Doctor W, from the Organ Transplant Center in the No.2 Affiliated Hospital of Dalian Medical University in Liaoning province : "You will have to get it done by May 1. This week and next week! After May 1, we will have very few organs left."
Doctor W from an affiliated hospital of Xi'an Jiaotong University in Shan'xi province: "If you want to have an organ transplant, you must try to come before May".

The doctors have confirmed that all donors are in their 20's and 30's. They are very healthy. They guarantee livers and kidneys from living human beings. They can provide a whole liver. For some blood types, they can find matching donors right away.

Doctor W from Dalian also stated: "Normally they are in their 20's and 30's. I can guarantee they are very healthy and the organs are fresh."


Reporter: "Can I receive a whole liver?"

Doctor W from Dalian: "A whole liver. A whole liver."

Reporter: "I heard some of the donors are young and healthy people in their 20's and 30's."

Doctor W from Dalian: "Yes! That's right."

Doctor W from Dalian: "We should be able to find an organ (with an HLA tissue match) from a donor of AB blood type. In fact, we should be able to find one very quickly."

Reporter: "Do you mean kidneys from living people?"

Doctor W from Xi'an: "Yes. We also supply livers from living people!"

Reporter: "Livers from living people? "

Doctor W from Xi'an: "Yes, Yes."

Reporter: "I heard you can supply organs from young, healthy people in their 20's and 30's?"

Doctor W from Xi'an: "Yes,Yes."

Reporter: "I heard that they will be extracted from living human beings."

Doctor W from Xi'an: "Yes, Yes,Yes."

Reporter: "Some labor camps imprison Falun Gong practitioners and then harvest
their organs when they are alive? "

Doctor W from Xi'an: "(Sneering) Right!"

The number of patients at organ transplant centers in China has suddenly surged. Major hospitals in China are now working overtime for organ transplant operations.

Doctor W from Dalian: "There are 30 patients right now waiting in line for organ transplant operations."

Doctor S from Shanghai: ¡°There are already a number of patients waiting¡­¡±

Reporter: "Are you all working overtime for organ transplant operations? "

Doctor S: "Yes,Yes,Yes. We have several organ transplant teams here working around the clock. We have a total of four teams that can perform organ transplants."

Reporter: "Have you been doing a lot of organ transplants lately? "

Doctor from Tongji Hospital in Wuhan City in Hubei province: "Well...that's right."

Several hospitals admit that they began to carry out organ transplants at the end of 2000 performing about 100-200 organ transplant operations each year.

Doctor W from Xi'an: "We started organ transplants at the end of 2000!"

Doctor Liming Wang from Dalian: "It has been five years since we commenced organ transplants."

According to the official statistics of the Chinese Communist government, there were only 78 liver transplants in China between 1991 and 1998. Since the official persecution of Falun Gong in 1999, the number of liver transplants has doubled and even tripled. China has become the country with the largest number of liver transplants in the world. The number of liver transplants in China in 1999, 2000 and 2001 was 118, 254 and 486, respectively. This represented a total aggregate of 936 cases. By the end of 2003, the number of liver transplants in China had jumped to over 3000. The statistics clearly indicate that the number of human organ donors has increased rapidly since 1999. The liver transplant is used as an example here because each human being has only one liver. A human being will not survive once his liver is removed.

Doctor S from Shanghai: "In China, we receive our supply of human organs from the same coordinated source. How do I explain it to you? Only we doctors know where the organs are from."

When Sujiatun Concentration Camp in Liaoning province was first exposed, the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG) immediately launched an investigation throughout China. This investigation revealed that there are at least eight provinces and cities in China that harvest internal organs from living Falun Gong practitioners, including Henan Province, Shandong Province, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Beijing, Tianjin, Liaoning Province and Hubei Province. Employees and surgeons of hospitals in these areas have admitted when answering calls from our investigators that there is a constant supply of Falun Gong practitioners' internal organs. According to a recent witness, a senior military doctor, there are 36 concentration camps in China where human organs are systematically removed and Falun Gong practitioners killed.

On April 12, 2006, the Communist government denied claims that Falun Gong practitioners were the victims of illegal organ extractions in the basement of the Liaoning Thrombosis Treatment Center in Sujiatan concentration camp. However, this denial was issued about 4 weeks after initial testimony from witnesses. The Chinese authorities have made no mention of other concentration camps, focusing exclusively on Sujiatun.

"Was it so long ago that this regime hid SARS from the world with similar statements of denial, falsified reports and outright lies? If the Chinese regime is serious about investigating these matters," Mr. Erping Zhang, the spokesman from Falun Gong Association, said, "it must open the doors of every concentration and forced labor camp throughout the country, and allow in any and all investigative teams... not at specified locations and specified times, but anywhere and anytime."

SOH has requested an independent third party investigation, eliciting no response. To this day, no third party investigation has been granted by the Communist government in China.

On Capitol Hill, congressmen have signed a dear-colleague letter urging President Bush to demand the release of Mr. Yang Jianli, a political dissident incarcerated in China. Another dear-colleague letter requests the president to seek an explanation from China's president Hu Jintao and a full third party investigation into concentration camps across China which persecute Falun Gong practitioners.
