Two council members discuss the "Wenyi Wang" Case
According to Mr. Pan, he has a very good relationship with practitioners and listened to their two presentations on the persecution. He said that he was shocked by the Chinese Communist regimes atrocities of harvesting organs from Falun Gong practitioners. He believes that the international community and Taiwan should condemn the CCPs atrocities and help end such practices. Therefore, he wanted to sponsor the resolution, hoping to help end the crimes happening in China. Before the resolution was submitted for discussion, he told practitioners that the resolution would be passed for sure, as the council shall speak out for human justice.
Mr. Pan also told practitioners that he had heard cases in which Taiwan residents went to China for organ transplants in the past several years. Though he didnt know the sources of those organs involved, he sensed the urgency of the issue after he listened to the practitioners briefing on the CCPs atrocities of harvesting organs for profit. He urged local residents to be cautious and not to receive organs removed from innocent Chinese citizens. In addition, he called on governments of other countries and health organizations to investigate the organ transplant practice in China and called on related entities to inform people not to go to China for transplants, because such organs may come from dissidents murdered by the communist regime.
To stop the CCPs killing of innocent civilians for organs, the resolution requested the following:
1. Delegate Pingtong County Government to retain the Taiwan Strait Exchange Foundation to pass the resolution to the Chinese government;
2. Request the United Nations and international human rights organizations to deploy experts to go to China to investigate the Chinese Communist regimes atrocities of harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners. Suggest Taiwan residents not to go to China for organ transplants.
