A UN refugee accepted by New Zealand, practitioner Guohua Huang, narrated his miserable experience of being persecuted in China to the members of Parliament. His 29-year-old, three-month pregnant wife was tortured to death by the CCP for persisting in her practise of Falun Gong. She left behind a young daughter. During his imprisonment, Mr. Huang's liver was examined three times, simply because he his coughing. After the exposure of the CCP’s live organ removal, he realised that he would have been used for the organ harvesting if his blood was not "like an eighty-year-old person" (doctor’s words). The members of parliament on site were sympathetic to his suffering.

MP Wayne Mapp said that he met many Falun Gong practitioners and was paying more attention to the persecution of Falun Gong. The severity and extension of this persecution is unimaginable. It’s horrible. After learning that many practitioners were arrested, imprisoned, or killed, he realised that it is a large-scale suppression in China. Though New Zealand has a good relationship with China, this does not mean that New Zealand should remain silent facing this most severe violation of human rights.
MP Mapp also said that during Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao’s visit to New Zealand this year, Prime Minister Clark put forward the Chinese human rights issue, which should have made the CCP feel pressure from the international community. When New Zealand talks about economic and commercial trade with China, we should persist in our basic values, that is, against the persecution and steadfastly in support of human rights.
MP Pita Paraone said that he thought that more people should know about the CCP’s atrocities of live organ removal. Today such barbaric atrocities against humans cannot be continued. He is disappointed at each government’s attitude on this issue since each government casts a blind eye on human rights issues because of concern for trade and economic interests.
The leader of the Mori Party, Tariana Turia, and a spokesperson of foreign affairs of the Greens, Keith Locke, also condemned the CCP’s live organ removal and put forward suggestions about how to get the attention of each government and organisation.
On the evening of August 24th, Mr. Kilgour and Mr. McMillan-Scott participated in a forum at the Law School of Victoria University and talked about their investigation of the CCP’s live organ removal. They also answered questions from the media and public.
