Taiwan: Government Information Office Issues a News Release Urging the CCP to Stop Harvesting Organs from Falun Gong Practitioners
(Clearwisdom.net) On October 17, to let more of the world's media,
especially the Taiwanese media, know about the human rights situation in
Mainland China, the Taiwan Government Information Office issued a news release
requesting the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to stop harvesting organs from
living Falun Gong practitioners. The Office also posted the link to the Canadian
investigation report, "Report into Allegations of Organ Harvesting of Falun
Gong Practitioners in China."
The article said that on October 13 the Office Minister, Mr. Wen-tsang Cheng, met with former Canadian MP David Kilgour and renowned human rights lawyer David Matas. During the meeting, Minister Cheng said that the CCP's grave human rights violation is well-known and Taiwan is very concerned about human rights on the Mainland. He said, "People can go to sleep, however, human conscience cannot sleep." Facing the atrocities of organ harvesting, he said that the world must pay much more attention. Minister Cheng demanded the CCP to stop the organ harvesting and hoped that the media around the world will all focus on the CCP's human rights violation.
Kilgour and Matas conducted a 2-month independent investigation after receiving a request from the Committee to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (CIPFG) last May. They released their report on July 6, 2006. Since then, they have traveled to many countries around the world to collect support from government officials and various organizations to stop the atrocities.
