Topic: The allegation of the Falun Gong practitioners having their organs harvested in China
Two Canadian lawyers Mr. David Matas and Mr. David Kilgour issued "Report into Allegations of Organ Harvesting of Falun Gong Practitioners in China" on July 6, 2006, according to their independent investigation. The investigation content is the disturbing revelation from China, which is the organizations of People Republic of China have harvested the innocent living Falun Gong practitioners' organs without their consent. In the process of harvesting their organs, these organizations execute the death penalty, which is beyond the judicial system, to torture and kill the Falun Gong practitioners. It is said that the mutilated bodies whose organs were harvested were cremated immediately to destroy all evidence of the crimes. It is said these crimes are happening on a large-scale in China, and these are done on purpose and systematically.
To harvest the organs from the unwilling specific living object or groups is an atrocious crime and against all international laws and regulations. The CCP regime has strongly denied these allegations. Does the Committee understand these most serious allegations? Has the Committee read the adducible report and if asked the Chinese delegation further investigating the allegations regarding this case, and replied the evidence behind their findings?
