Video: Witness Describes Organ Harvesting from Living Falun Gong Practitioners (English Subtitles)
(Clearwisdom.net) On April 18, 2006, "The Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong in China" (CIPFG) held a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington DC, demanding a complete investigation into all forced labor camps, prisons, detention centers, custody centers, hospitals, mental hospitals, and related facilities where Falun Gong practitioners have been incarcerated in the past seven years. The CIPFG also invited international organizations and governments to join this independent investigative organization to work together to conduct a truly thorough investigation into the CCP's crimes.

Annie said, "It is agonizing to recall the past. The organs removed from a living human being fetch a much higher price than from a dead body. After the live organ removal, some Falun Gong practitioners were still alive and breathing, but some of their bodies were directly thrown into the crematory oven. No trace of their bodies is left. Sometimes the surgeons would stitch the openings and ask their families or representatives of their families to sign the agreement for the bodies to be cremated. Some families had no idea the organs had been removed. Moreover, some practitioners transferred from prisons were very healthy. But they were injected with psychotropic drugs that did severe damage to their central nervous system. Then they were transferred to Sujiatun for additional torture until their organs were removed and their bodies were cremated. "
She also revealed an entry in her husband's diary, "When a patient lost consciousness, he cut open her clothes with a pair of scissors. A package fell out of his pocket. My husband opened it and found a small box inside. Inside the box, there was a lucky charm with Falun Gong's symbol and a note. It said, 'Mommy, Happy Birthday.' My husband was completely devastated."
Full transcript of her testimony below.
My name is Annie. I used to work for Liaoning Province Thrombosis Treatment Center of Integrated Chinese and Western Medicine. I have exposed a concentration camp hidden inside the hospital. My work had to do with statistics. My ex-husband was a surgeon in that hospital. I am sorry that I won't be able to attend today's press conference. I have been escaping from the danger of assassination for the past few years. When my ex-husband decided to stop removing organs from Falun Gong practitioners, he was nearly assassinated by an organization in China.
My ex-husband and I worked in this hospital from 1999 and 2004. He had removed organs from Falun Gong practitioners. He was a neurosurgeon. He was responsible for removing corneas from Falun Gong practitioners, including living Falun Gong practitioners.
I have exposed the shocking news that this hospital removed organs, such as livers and corneas, from a large number of living Falun Gong practitioners. Some practitioners were still breathing after their organs were removed against their will, but they were thrown into the hospital's incinerator anyway. The hospital's incinerator in the boiler room was also used as a crematory oven. Some of the practitioners were frail and others were very healthy and robust. Because the police kidnapped these Falun Gong practitioners without any search warrant, they didn't have their identification with them. So far no Falun Gong practitioner can come out alive. Out of several Falun Gong practitioners here, many of their kidneys, cornea and skin had been removed and their bodies had been exterminated to destroy the evidence.
Liaoning Province Thrombosis Treatment Center of Integrated Chinese and Western Medicine is located at 49 Xuesong Road, Sujiatun, Shenyang City, Liaoning Province. It is the first general hospital specializing in treating heart and cerebrovascular diseases in China. This hospital consists of Liaoning Province Traditional Medicine Teaching Hospital and Shenyang Thrombosis Treatment Center. It only has...
Some of the staff in this hospital knew about, but they... Many surgeons participated in such organ removal surgeries secretly. Some other staff members dared not reveal the secret even when they knew about it. They avoided talking about it because they didn't want to be killed. The majority of the Falun Gong practitioners were transferred from Dabei Prison, Masanjia Forced Labor Camp and other prisons in Shenyang. Others were kidnapped from parks or their homes. They were kidnapped because they refused to give up their belief in Falun Gong. The police didn't have any search warrant and their families didn't know it when they were arrested. Because the Chinese Communist government's state policy authorizes killing Falun Gong practitioners without any legal consequences, the death of Falun Gong practitioners in China's penal system is nothing.
During its killing of Falun Gong, the Chinese Communist Party told the involved hospital staff members that these Falun Gong practitioners were on the brink of death because they were assaulted, they were executed for criminal offenses or they became insane from practicing Falun Gong.
It is agonizing to recall the past. The organs removed from a living human being fetch a much higher price than from a dead body. After the live organ removal, some Falun Gong practitioners were still alive and breathing, but some of their bodies were directly thrown into the crematory oven. No trace of their bodies is left. Sometimes the surgeons would stitch the openings and ask their families or representatives of their families to sign the agreement for the bodies to be cremated. Some families had no idea the organs had been removed. Moreover, some practitioners transferred from prisons were very healthy, but they were injected with psychiatric drugs that did severe damage to their central nervous system. Then they were transferred to Sujiatun for additional torture until their organs were removed and their bodies were cremated. Some of the practitioners were very frail and others were very healthy and strong. For the past few years, many of them were kidnapped without any search warrant. They didn't have any identification with them. They were truly miserable.
I knew about this at the end of 2003. At the time my husband had become absent-minded and almost robotic. He had been doing it for years, but he had never told me about it. He kept it a secret. He often had terrible nightmares at night and woke up shrieking and terrified. He had stared blankly at the TV. When the kid or I touched him, he would shriek. I found him becoming abnormal. During that period of time, I overheard some colleagues talking about it because in our Health Bureau many people work together and our friends also have friends in this circle.
It was already 2003. It was already over two years from 2001 to 2003. It took over two years for me to find out the man sleeping next to me is such an ugly person. I really could not tolerate it. I made him quit his job and he agreed. However, quitting the job brought him mortal danger. My family decided to run away from everything by moving abroad. He told me, "You have no idea of my agony. These Falun Gong practitioners were alive. It would be okay if we removed organs from dead bodies, but these people were truly alive. These things were done in secret. The involved surgeons in our hospitals were actually interns transferred from other hospitals. Because the government does not protect Falun Gong practitioners' lives, their lives are regarded as nothing. The intern doctors used Falun Gong practitioners' bodies for experimentation. There were a lot of transfers in and out of our hospital. Some doctors felt very pained after they had done it. Some were transferred elsewhere. Some changed their names and moved elsewhere. Some went abroad. Some may have been killed to eliminate evidence.
The staff in our hospital secretly calls the boiler room the "crematory oven." Really, I feel so painful when I think of it sometimes. It is most cruel. It is a doctor's mission to save people from death and treat the injured, but here...
My ex-husband had the habit of keeping a diary. There is an entry in his diary. When a patient lost consciousness, he cut open her clothes with a pair of scissors. A package fell out of his pocket. My husband opened it and found a small box inside. Inside the box, there was a lucky charm with Falun Gong's symbol and a note. It said, 'Mommy, Happy Birthday.' My husband was completely devastated.
There are a lot of hospitals in China that do this. They have removed organs from many living Falun Gong practitioners in secret. There are not as many Falun Gong practitioners detained in Sujiatun now, but I believe that the crime still continues. The workers in our hospital's boiler room were destitute when they first came. After a while, they stocked up a large number of watches, rings and necklaces. They removed them from Falun Gong practitioners before throwing them into the crematory oven. According to our hospital's staff members, some practitioners were thrown into the crematory oven before they died. These poor Falun Gong practitioners...
I am so sorry. Every day I lived in the pain of guilt. If only I could have persuaded my family to step out earlier, perhaps many practitioners would have survived. I know there are many Falun Gong practitioners imprisoned in many hospitals in China. I hope that these crimes would be exposed in the international society as soon as possible so that the remaining practitioners would be rescued. In addition, I hope my family and relatives will be able to hear my testimony.
I have divorced my husband because I cannot accept that fact my husband removed organs from Falun Gong practitioners. I myself have been severely traumatized and devastated. If my ex-husband had not told me that he had removed organs from living Falun Gong practitioners, I would not have believed it. I am not a Falun Gong practitioner. I am not speaking here with the same high level of morality as Falun Gong practitioners. But I truly have been feeling guilty as a Chinese with conscience for the past few years.
I thought of exposing this in China, but many people in the Health Bureau who knew about this disagreed. They told me if I exposed this, my family and I would all be killed.
This is a state crime. I know this is the state that is committing the crimes. I know I alone will not be able to change this, but I know a lot of doctors will step out. I truly hope that these doctors, after hearing my heartfelt testimony, will act according to their conscience. I also hope that this would be resolved quickly. I am not criticizing China. I do not mean to criticize China at all, but it is the Chinese government that caused this. I hope they will truly give an answer to those people. Thank you.
