Investigation Lead: Heart for Transplantation Available in Only 10 Days at Harbin Medical University in 2000 (and Other Leads) (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) After the disclosure of the Chinese Communist Party's crimes of harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners, the Falun Dafa Association and the Clearwisdom website established the "International Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong in China" (CIPFG) on April 4, 2006. The CIPFG calls on all those who are in a position to investigate to provide evidence of this illegal organ harvesting.

1. Investigation Lead: Heart for transplantation available in only 10 days at Harbin Medical University in 2000
Retirement Life, a magazine published by the Heilongjiang Party Committee Elderly Official Division, carried a series of articles beginning in July 2006 entitled, "A Story of a Heart Transplant Patient." CCTV also covered this story in 2006, in a program called Senior Life.
The story, as well as information on the Internet, has many suspicious points. I think it may be related to live organ harvesting from Dafa practitioners. If so, this could be one of the earliest cases of harvesting hearts from Dafa practitioners.
The transplant operation took place on January 14, 2000. The patient was Yang Mengyong, a resident of Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province. He was an editor for Beidahuang Wen, a magazine in Jiamusi City, Heilongjiang Province. Yang retired in 1998 because of heart disease, and was first hospitalized in December 1999 in Harbin Medical University, Division II. After five examinations, including cardiology, blood work, gastrointestinal and renal function, and anesthesia, doctors concluded that only a heart transplant could save Yang's life.
In Part I of "A Story of a Heart Transplant Patient," the hospital not only took the initiative to find the donor--which merely took a little over 10 days, but also waived the usual expense of 200,000 yuan. I think that, according to the transplant information exposed, finding a donor normally takes a long time. However, Harbin Medical University Division II took the initiative of looking for the donor and waived the expense, implying they knew they could use this to gain recognition. Yang was 57 years old when he had the transplant surgery. At that time, the oldest heart transplant recipient was 55 years old.
2. Investigation Lead: New building constructed at Oriental Organ Transplant Center
According to a report this August in This Evening, a Tianjin City newspaper, a new building at the Oriental Organ Transplant Center was recently constructed and put in use, implying that more transplant operations and organ harvesting are anticipated. We hope that more evidence can be found on organ transplantation conducted there.
3. Investigation Lead: Liver transplant at First Hospital in Jiujiang City, liver source unknown
Recently I heard that a liver transplant from a living person was carried out in Jiujiang City. I searched the Internet and found some relevant information. Suffering from both sclerosing cholangitis and obstructive jaundice, a patient surnamed Chen had benign final-stage liver disease. At around midnight on August 5, 2006, a classic orthotropic liver transplant was conducted on Chen in the First Hospital in Jiujiang City. This was the fourth liver transplant done in that hospital.
On August 15, on the website of this hospital, there was an article entitled, "Medical Techniques Improvement: Successful Liver Transplant at First Hospital in Jiujiang City." It only mentioned that the liver was from Wuhan City. No further detailed information was available. We hope that more evidence will be obtained.
