Investigation Lead: In 2000, Suspicious Physical Exam Conducted on Falun Dafa Practitioners at the Wuhan City Drug Rehabilitation Center
(Clearwisdom.net) Since the inhuman atrocities were exposed of the Chinese Communist Party's harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners and cremation of their bodies to destroy evidence, concerned people took action. On April 4, 2006, the Falun Dafa Association and the Minghui website co-founded the Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong. Leads were collected from people in society, as the example below describes. We hope kind people with information can continue to help us expose the brutalities against Falun Gong practitioners taking place in labor camps, prisons and hospitals, which are colluding with each other in various parts of China, so we can together end this persecution.
The Largest Human Organ Transplant Center in North China will Officially Open its Doors

Medical equipment is being installed and the facility is being advertised. The facility is being prepared to open its doors to patients.
In 2000, Dafa Practitioners Illegally Held at Wuhan City Drug Rehabilitation Center Were Subjected to Physical Exams
In July and August 2000, He and Yang, group heads at the Wuhan City Drug Rehabilitation Center transported more than twenty Dafa practitioners illegally incarcerated at the Rehabilitation Center in two vehicles to the Wuhan City No. 1 Hospital. This is the designated hospital for labor camps and detention centers. The practitioners were taken there for a physical exam for all in the group.
According to a fellow practitioner who was present, it seemed like a physical exam for the guards, but they mixed the practitioners with the guards to also be examined. Someone said the government allocated between 10,000 yuan and 20,000 yuan for the exams. It is estimated each exam cost around 400 yuan. The practitioners were not made to pay for these exams. By contrast, people have to pay grossly inflated prices, several times higher than market price, at the labor camp for medicines for a slight illness. This group physical exam was very suspicious.
All routine exams were conducted at the time, including liver exam, other organs, EKG, eye exam, blood pressure, testing for infectious diseases and B-ultrasound, among others.
