Switzerland: Press Conference in Geneva to Condemn the Atrocities Committed by the CCP

On the afternoon of June 29th, 2006, a press conference entitled “Health, Morality and Human Rights” was held at the United Nations Offices in Geneva. Participants condemned the CCP's crime of harvesting organs from live Falun Gong practitioners in prisons and labour camps.

According to a report from Sound of Hope Radio on June 30th, the Vice President of the European Parliament, Mr. Edward McMillan-Scott, sent the conference a report about his investigation of the persecution of Falun Gong in Beijing. The host of the conference, the secretary of International Multiple Belief Organisation, Dr. Charles, said that what they need to do during this conference was to discuss the CCP's trade in organs harvested from Falun Gong practitioners, as well as whether the CCP has been lying about this issue and trying to cover up the truth.

Mr. Charles said that some Falun Gong practitioners are jailed in a concentration camp in the North-East area of China, many doctors work there. Falun Gong practitioners’ organs have been harvested. Some witnesses found that the organ harvesting not only happens to Falun Gong practitioners, but also happens to political prisoners and other prisoners.

Mr. Charles read Mr. Edward McMillan-Scott’s investigation report. In the report, Mr. Scott said that when he visited China in 1996, he saw a lot of Falun Gong practitioners doing the exercises in parks, but the CCP launched a large scale persecution in 1999. Mr. Scott said that he wants to ask why the government, which governs a country with the biggest population in the world, would have this programmed genocide.

Mr. Charles said that the report by Mr. Scott is a challenge to many human rights organisations and non-government organisations. He said that, of course, it is hard to hear the criticism of the CCP from the Western newspapers, political parties and parliaments. However, we should appreciate what this British gentleman has done. He is trying his best against the CCP. In China, nobody is for the Cultural Revolution. Falun Gong has attracted a lot of people. Falun Gong combines a lot of ancient belief, including Buddhism and Taoism, so we should also appreciate that Master Li Hongzhi founded Falun Gong.

Mr. Charles said that, what is hard to understand is that in Western society, the society leaders would use Falun Gong and benefit from it, but it seems that the CCP leaders don’t think Falun Gong is beneficial. Mr. Charles said that the persecution of Falun Gong by the CCP has reached the peak. The recent investigations show that in Northern China, doctors in the military hospitals harvest organs from jailed Falun Gong practitioners. When those practitioners were first arrested, they were registered with their real names. But when they were found to have healthy organs, they would be assigned fake names. Their organs have been sold in the market to people from other countries. The average price is between forty and fifty thousand US dollars.

The participants to this conference include Falun Gong practitioner, Ms. Chen Ying, who had been persecuted in China, the president of the Special Committee of Non-government Organisations, Mr. Peter and the former president of Human Rights Committee of the Geneva Parliament, Mr. Thomas.
