Many Koreans Seek Organ Transplants in Major Hospitals in China, and Other Investigation Leads

The Falun Dafa Association and the Clearwisdom website established the Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong in China (CIPFG) on April 4th, 2006. Some recently collected investigation leads are presented below. We hope that people will continue to help us expose the organ harvesting and other cruel persecution that continues today in labour camps, prisons and hospitals in China, and to help stop it.

Investigation lead: Many Koreans Seek Organ Transplants in Major Hospitals in China

Investigation lead: many transplants performed at the Zhenzhou City Central Hospital since 2002; organ source unclear

Investigation lead: Jiangsu Province Chinese Medicine Research Institute suspected of involvement in harvesting living Falun Gong practitioners’ organs for transplant

Investigation lead: Many Koreans Seek Organ Transplants in Major Hospitals in China

Most of the patients for organ transplant who are currently staying at the No. 1 Central Hospital in Tianjin City (also called the Oriental Organ Transplant Centre), Renji Hospital in Shanghai, the Ruijin Hospital in Shanghai and Gaoxin Hospital in Xi’an City, are from Korea.

The Oriental Organ Transplant Centre (OOTC) has performed large numbers of transplant surgeries at the end of April and June of 2006, and most of the organ recipients came from Korea.

Many Koreans are taking advantage of the illicit organ supply in China, and for a fee, they introduce Korean patients to Chinese hospitals where such transplants are available. A Korean man named Jiang specifically introduced patients to the Renji Hospital in Shanghai. Another Korean individual named Jin, who currently lives in Japan, specialises in recommending Japanese transplant patients to the Tongji Hospital in Wuhan City. The phone number of one contact person for this kind of business is Director Ren, 6376-3175. There are several Koreans who introduce Korean patients to the OOTC as a means to make money.

As of March 2006, however, only two middle men were permitted to refer Korean patients to the OOTC. They are Xu Jingshu, a Korean woman living in Tianjin City, and Jin Zhenri, a Chinese man from Jilin who now lives in Tianjin City. His phone number is 22-13102218568.

Dr. Jin Zaiyun, deputy head of the third largest hospital in Korea, introduces Korean patients to Jin Zhenri, and Jin Zhenri refers them over to various Chinese hospitals.

Korean Falun Dafa practitioners should work harder to expose the persecution and the atrocities taking place in China to the Korean people, in order to prevent from creating opportunities for Chinese transplant hospitals to do evil and stop the crimes of the persecution towards Falun Dafa practitioners.

Investigation lead: Zhenzhou City Central Hospital began performing transplant surgeries in 2002; organ sources unknown

1. Ms. Wang from Taiwan a received kidney transplant in 2002

Ms. Wang from Taiwan received a kidney transplant at the Zhenzhou City Central Hospital at 10:00 a.m. on October 12, 2002, after which she left the hospital and returned to Taiwan. Head of the hospital Lu Jinxiang, Deputy Party Secretary Guo Xin’e, head of the Surgery Department Zhang Dapeng, head of the organ transplant centre Cai Xianan and other hospital officials and medical staff at the transplant centre saw Ms. Wang off for her return trip.

Mr. Wang, a Taiwanese contact person who worked for the China Kidney Transplant Cooperation Centre, also called the Cross-Strait Medical and Life Service Committee, which is part of the Zhenzhou City Central Hospital, introduced Ms. Wang to the hospital. Dr. Cai Xianan was likely the surgeon for this operation.

2. Mr. Cai from Taiwan received a kidney transplant

Mr. Cai from Taiwan received a kidney transplant at the Zhenzhou City Central Hospital. He left the hospital at 6:00 a.m. on August 24, 2002. Zhang Dapeng, head of the surgery department and Cai Xianan, head of the Organ Transplant Centre saw him off.

3. Pancreas-kidney dual transplant at the Zhenzhou City Central Hospital

Organ transplant experts from Henan Province performed a dual pancreas-kidney transplant at the China Kidney Transplant Cooperation Centre inside Zhenzhou City's Central Hospital.

Head surgeon Cai Xianan performed the surgery. Patient Mr. Zhu is 53 years old, a farmer from Dagangliu Township, Zhenzhou City. Zhu developed diabetes 15 years ago and was diagnosed with uraemia in 2001. According to Cai Xianan, only a dual transplant of both pancreas and kidney would serve as a cure to his diabetes and uraemia. He did not explain the source of both of the donor organs.

Investigation lead: Jiangsu Province Chinese Medicine Research Institute suspected of involvement in harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners for transplants

The Jiangsu Province Chinese Medicine Research Institute, also called the Jiangsu Provincial Hospital of Integrated Chinese and Western Medicine, was not listed among the first group of targets for the investigation of organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners, but this hospital has very likely participated in it. We suggest that Jiangsu Province Chinese Medicine Research Institute be added to the list of hospitals targeted for investigation and evidence collection.

The following is some information on organisations and people who have possibly participated in live organ harvesting.
