Investigation Lead: China has become a large "organ transplant country," then where do the organs come from?
According to a June 10, 2006 Xinhua News Agency article reprinted in the Sanxiang Metropolitan News, China "has performed more than 85,000 organ transplants, cumulatively. All organ transplants that are done overseas can be done in China." Chen Shi from the Transplant Society of the Chinese Medical Association said, "In the past few years, we have performed over 10,000 transplant surgeries annually and set a new record in 2005 by completing more than 12,000 transplants."
According to the report, "It is said that most of the 85,000 transplant surgeries were kidney transplants, as more than 74,000 kidney transplants have been performed." "More than 10,000 liver transplants have been performed." "More than 400 heart transplants have been performed."
What are the sources of these organs when voluntary organ donation is extremely rare in China? Whether the answer is harvesting of organs from living Falun Gong practitioners, or organs extracted from executed prisoners as the Communist government claims, it means the Transplant Society of the Chinese Medical Association and numerous participating hospitals and medical staff have committed severe ethical violations and crimes.
Investigation lead: A wave of transplant surgeries at the Tongji Hospital in Wuhan City in late 2006
The Tongji Hospital in Wuhan City was performing transplants continuously in October, November and December 2006. The surgeries included liver transplants, kidney transplants, and pancreas transplants. The patients came from Japan, Vietnam, Pakistan, Syria and other countries, and there were also many domestic patients.
Patients wait less than twenty days before they get a kidney transplant. The hospital lies to the patients and tells them the organs come from executed prisoners. According to the doctors, the kidney supply is now tight and hard to come by. A Pakistani patient who received a liver transplant died in early December 2006. The hospital completed kidney transplants and pancreas transplants on December 17 and December 18, and two kidney transplants on the evening of December 22.
The Organ Transplant Research Institute and its patient wards at Tongji Hospital are located in Building 21 and Building 22 at Division 2 of the Inpatient Surgery Department. The surgeries are performed on the third floor, at Division 1 of the Inpatient Surgery Department. Following is a partial list of doctors who took part in transplant surgeries: head surgeon Zeng Fansheng, deputy surgeon Ming Changsheng, and doctors Chen Zhishui, Jiang Jingping and Meng Fanying. The director in charge of the kidney supply for the Tongji Hospital is Ji Changquan.

Investigation lead: Bus advertises transplant business at Dalian Friendship Hospital
A bus with the license plate number "Liao B12346" has an ad painted on its side reading "Please go to the Friendship Hospital for kidney and liver transplants. Address: No. 8 Sanba Square, Dalian City. Surgery Department at Liver and Gallbladder Surgical Research Institute: 86-411-82718822-3308, 3309. Kidney Transplant Center: 86-411-82706688.
Judging from the appearance of the bus, this ad was placed a few years ago. One patient called the medical experts at this hospital to inquire about kidney sources. Through their response, it is certain that the hospital has access to a reliable and fixed network to obtain human organs, and crimes are being committed.
