Central News Agency: Falun Gong Practitioners' Organs Harvested, The Straits Exchange Foundation Calls for Investigation
(Clearwisdom.net) Central News Agency reported on April 28, 2006, The Straits Exchange Foundation expressed today that several cases have been obtained recently accusing incidents of harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners and cremating their murdered bodies to destroy the evidence in the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP's) Sujiatun Concentration Camp, and other concentration camps, forced labor camps and prisons in China. On April 25, we sent a letter to the Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Straits (ARATS) [the Mainland China counterpart to the Straits Exchange Foundation] to request assistance in looking into related facilities of the CCP, to severely punish those unlawful people [responsible for these crimes] and to safeguard basic human rights.
The Straits Exchange Foundation expressed that freedom of religion is a universal value. The CCP's suppression of Falun Gong can only add to people's hatred of the CCP regime. In Taiwan, the constitution guarantees the freedom of religion. Falun Gong is also very active, and the government has never interfered with it. This is the biggest difference between democratic freedom and totalitarian rule.
The Straits Exchange Foundation hoped that ARATS would investigate the persecution cases, safeguard basic human rights and guarantee the freedom of religion.
