Belgian MPs Jan Peumans and Jan Loones published an open letter demanding an investigation into the harvest of organs in Chinese concentration camps and subsequent cremation of bodies. The letter demanded the European governments to take immediate actions utilising all possible avenues to stop this new round of genocide from happening in mainland China.

An Open Letter to
Mr. Guy Verhofstadt, Federal Prime Minister
Ms. Zhang Qiyue, Ambassador of China to Belgium
Mr. Yves Leterme, Flemish Minister - President
Mr. Geert Bourgeois, Flemish Minister of Foreign Policy, Media and Tourism
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
In the past few weeks, evidence of the existence of Chinese concentration camps began to surface. According to two witnesses, a death concentration camp of Falun Gong practitioners is hidden inside a hospital, which specialises in organ transplants, located in Sujiatun District, Shengyang City in northeast China. The concentration camp was built to supply fresh human organs for transplant operations. After these terrible facts were disclosed and while according to media reports the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) was urgently evacuating Sujiatun area, a third witness, a self-proclaimed veteran military surgeon, came forward with the fact that there are more than thirty-five such concentration camps in existence in China.
The organ trade is an extremely lucrative business. Organs are harvested while victims are still alive. As a cost-saving measure only a little anaesthesia is applied. Afterwards the victims’ bodies are immediately cremated. Families do not have a clue as to the fate of their loved ones after they have disappeared.
Such a surge of organ harvesting apparently has its root in a recent piece of legislation in China – “Interim Regulations on Organ Transplants”. The legislation, which was published by the Ministry of Health on the 28th of March, in theory defines forcible organ removal as illegal. However, the law will not come into effect until 1st of July, which leaves a full three months for the profit-seeking CCP officials to wantonly harvest organs. The new legislation follows immediately the disclosure of the Sujiatun concentration camp of Falun Gong practitioners on the 3rd of March. Prior to this, China has never adopted such measures, not even after the secret Chinese organ trade was testified in detail at US Congress. The whole sequence of events is obvious: concentration camps were exposed, the alarmed CCP officials took three weeks to discuss actions, a giant machine of cover-up was started, which included denial, whitewash legislation, and crazy profit seeking prior to the law taking effect.

The above crimes of the CCP are utterly devoid of conscience, revealing the most evil concentration camps that do not belong to the 21st century. Today, however, in the most excruciating way a country regarded as an important economic partner by the world’s leaders made us face these appalling crimes. Belgium should organise an urgent independent investigation of these crimes. Once the truth is known, history is not to be repeated.
Deeply regretted that they had not been able to stop the massacre, international society solemnly promised “never again” after World War II. Sixty years have gone by before history gives the civilised world a chance to make things right. We hope this generation can proudly say, “Not only did we make a promise, we fulfilled it.”
We urge European governments to take immediate actions utilising all possible avenues to stop this new round of genocide from happening in mainland China. Every minute of delay is at the expense of innocent lives and is a shame for mankind.
We look forward to hearing your views on this matter.
