Wiesbadener Kurier (Germany): Living people selected for their organs and their bodies burned to destroy the evidence

The Wiesbadener Kurier newspaper published an article called ‘‘human rights not made by China’’ on March 29th, and reported on a China related seminar held in Koenigstein the day before. A human rights expert pointed out at the seminar, ‘‘China has not made the slightest improvement in the freedom of the media and legal system aspects, furthermore the banned Falun Gong and Falun Gong practitioners are suffering not only political persecution, the more severe thing is, for a long time, they are being used as human body organ storage. According to needs, living people will be killed after being selected for their organs and then the rest of body burned in order to destroy the evidence. ’’

The article says that the well-known Canadian human rights lawyer David Matas and the former Canadian government Asia department leader David Kilgour published their report which was written after several months’ research. They believe that surely there is a kind of organ dealings on the evidence of sudden huge profits existing in China. Since 2001 until now, there were at least 42,000 organs that were used for those organ-transplanting operations; the government can’t explain the source or where they have come from. On the other hand, in labour camps Falun Gong practitioners were systematically medically examined. Ms. Dai Ying, who is living in Norway at present provided evidence of what she suffered in person in China’s labour camps.

Manyang Wu, a member of the International Human Right Association Council said ‘‘The CCP government makes use of the persecution to make profits. The foreign enterprises in China very seldom think about human right issues. China is increasing fast economically, but at the same time lots of human right abuse is happening there too. Many Chinese products were produced in labour camps by those who were forced to work. As some specialist figured, most of those are low value products, such as Christmas goods, gloves and chopsticks etc. but there are also some valuable kinds like monitors, computers and computer accessories. The International Human Right Association Council spokesman Martin Lessentin warned, not to criticise that the consumption of these kind of products will bring more adversity.’’

The seminar also mentioned that the Olympics will be held in Beijing in 2008. In the article: ‘‘Peter Kutilek who comes from the German Czech Olympic watch stressed that the principle of the Olympics can not be separated from human rights issues. So officials of the international and national Olympic committee have the responsibility of urging China to respect human dignity and to honour freedom of speech and freedom of the press. But the appeal of the Olympic committee has been ignored. He was not positive about China’s situation.
