(Clearwisdom.net) Since the exposure of the Chinese Communist Party's organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners, the Falun Dafa Association and Clearwisdom.net have jointly initiated a committee to travel to China to comprehensively investigate the facts about the persecution of Falun Gong and collect information broadly from society. The following are some leads we have obtained recently. We hope kind-hearted people with inside information will continue to assist us in exposing the true situation of the brutal abuse of Falun Gong practitioners in labor camps, prisons and hospitals throughout Mainland China, and help us to end the persecution.

Investigative Lead: Staff from Jilin University Second Hospital and Paramilitary Hospital in Changchun Work Overtime to Complete Kidney Transplants

Dr. Gu with Jilin University Second Hospital in Changchun is now supervising kidney transplants. Initially, Gu was the person in charge of kidney transplants in this hospital. Prior to 2005, for every kidney transplant, the Second Hospital charged the patient's family 10,000 yuan for "transportation fees." It only takes three to five days to find a suitable kidney before the patient has the transplant operation. During busy times, they conduct two to three operations per day. Sometimes they do six to seven operations per week. At low times, they do more than ten kidney transplants a month.

Staff at the Paramilitary Hospital in Changchun are also working overtime to do the kidney transplants. Where do so many kidneys come from? At the Heizuizi Labor Camp, Heizuizi Prison, Weizigou, Jiutai, and Jilin prisons in Changchun, Dafa practitioners are being brutally tortured. Their safety is at critical risk every minute.

Investigative Leads: A Few Reports on Illegal Organ Transplants in China

1. Six kidney transplants were done at the Zhongshan Hospital in Shanghai on one evening in September 2005. The operations went from 7:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. the next morning. The recipients of the transplants were from Korea, Japan, and China. According to an inside source, one of the kidneys was harvested in a prison in Guangdong from a healthy man about 30 years old from Northeastern China.

2. A Korean man planned to have a liver transplant in May 2006 at the Renji Hospital in Shanghai. After he arrived in Shanghai, however, Renji Hospital received orders that no organ transplant operations may be done in Shanghai. He had to go to Zhejiang Provincial First People's Hospital in Hangzhou to receive an operation. The operation occurred around June 3. According to sources familiar with the situation, the patients awaiting operations are from all parts of the world and of a variety of ethnic groups, and some are from Korea and Japan. The source also said that the organs were harvested in prisons by doctors in military uniforms from inmates serving prison sentences.

3. In Korea, there is an agency that specializes in facilitating organ transplants. They arrange for the patients to travel to Shanghai, Guangdong, Tianjin, Chongqing, and other places to receive transplants. We hope relevant personnel can conduct further investigations.

Investigative Lead: A Military Hospital and a Missile Base Are Located in Huaihua, Hunan Province

Besides the First, Second, Third, Forth, and Fifth People's Hospitals, there is also a military hospital in Huaihua City called the 535 Hospital. Military medical experts often visit there to "gather and discuss treatment." This site is worthy of further investigation.

A military missile base is located in Huaihua. A military missile division is stationed at Dongkou County, Hunan Province. Jiang Zemin has visited Huaihua a few times.

Investigative Lead: The source of the kidneys for operations conducted by Fu Yaowen at the First Hospital of Jilin University involves the court system

Fu Yaowen, 48, is the director of the organ transplant center at the First Hospital of Jilin University. His wife works for the Jilin Provincial Court. As a result, Fu was able to obtain many kidneys. Sources say that many kidney transplant patients confirmed the time of the operation after contacting Fu Yaowen. The operations are often conducted by Fu's student Wang Gang, who was transferred from the Third Hospital of Jilin University to the First Hospital.
