The response from Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Canada and Citizens
On Wednesday, during an interview, Pamela Greenwell, the Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, said that the Canadian government has "serious concerns" about illegal harvesting of organs from inmates and urges China to obey its own law. She said that the recommendations made during the investigation reports match the Canadian government's policies, including urging the CCP to stop the persecution of Falun Gong.
On the day the Globe and Mail reported the investigation results by the Canadian independent investigation group, dozens of readers made comments on its website. A reader from Toronto said that, if true, this is nothing short of genocide and it should be investigated by international organisations. Another said that it is a crime and must be punished.
A woman from Calgary has had two kidney transplant surgeries. She said that it would be horrifying, if she found out that one of her kidneys was harvested from a living person without permission. A man from Waterloo said that it is sickening and is an insult to human beings. He asked: "Cannot we do something about the serious violation of basic human rights? We have lost our moral compass!"
Mr. Jaffer told the reporter that the Parliament and Ministry of Foreign Affair of Canada have serious concerns and are studying the investigation report carefully. He said that the Canadian government will take actions soon.
