Taiwan: Mainland Affairs Council Expresses Its Position on Illegal Sujiatun Organ Harvesting and Selling
(Clearwisdom.net) The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has imprisoned several thousands of Falun Gong practitioners in Sujiatun Concentration Camp, where it harvests body organs from living practitioners, and cremates their remains in a crematorium on site to destroy the evidence. Witnesses have come out to testify one after another. The Mainland Affairs Council expressed its position on March 24, 2006 with regard to the CCP's atrocity: "It is hard to imagine that a country can adopt such a form to deal with people with different views." Taiwan is similar to other countries in the world in its objection of this manner of harvesting organs for transplant, which cannot be accepted in any country.
Deputy Minister Johnnason Liu said in a routine press conference that Taiwan's position is the same as other countries with regard to improving people's health through the medical system and health standards. Maintaining peoples' health through commercial mechanisms such as illegal harvesting and selling of human organs is hard to accept in any country.
It has been just over ten days since the Sujiatun atrocity has been revealed. Why does the CCP regime keep silent to the outside world's condemnation and request for the facts? Johnnason Liu said that the CCP's handling is generally this way to hide their inhuman deeds, and those substandard policies.
He said that in the case of the Sujiatun incident, the CCP is thinking about how to minimize the adverse effect of this disclosure, and indicated that this is often the CCP's way of handling things. For example, in the case of an epidemic, the CCP would deny it at the beginning and then delay an official announcement if it turns out to be something it cannot deny. Such a manner of handling important developments harms peripheral countries.
Insiders think that the CCP's silence to the Sujiatun incident indicates that there are different opinions among top level CCP officials. Human rights lawyer Gao Zhisheng mentioned that the Sujiatun incident relates to crimes against humanity and genocide. If these two crimes are recognized, international prosecution will be initiated and head of state status will be ineffective in evading the punishment of the International Court of Justice.
"Organ transplants are life risking. There are many doubts about the mainland medical system as to the quality and facilities [for organ transplants]," reminded Johnnason Liu. Thus, if people in Taiwan want to go to the mainland to have an organ transplant, they "Should think it over. Otherwise, there is no possibility to reverse the course."
