(Clearwisdom.net) The horrifying discovery of organ harvesting from living Falun Dafa practitioners and the immediate cremation of their bodies to destroy evidence was first reported on March 4, 2006. The Falun Dafa Association and Minghui website (the Chinese version of Clearwisdom) founded the "Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong in China" (CIPFG) on April 4, 2006. CIPFG is collecting evidence of the crime of illegal organ harvesting. The following are several investigation leads obtained recently. We hope that people will continue to help us expose how Falun Gong practitioners are brutally persecuted in re-education labor camps (also called forced labor camps), prisons, and hospitals in China, and help stop the persecution.

Investigation Lead: The People's Hospital in Zhengzhou City, Henan Province, Found a Liver and Kidney for Transplant in Three Weeks

The Oriental Today reported from Zhengzhou City that eight doctors and three nurses from the Organ Transplant Department of the Peoples' Hospital in Zhengzhou conducted an eleven-hour liver and kidney transplant operation for Mr. Zhang Jian (assumed name) at 4:00 p.m. on June 15, 2008. The Director of the Organ Transplant Department, Qu Qingshan participated in this operation. It took the hospital only three weeks to find the matching organs for the transplant.

On May 21, 2008, Mr. Zhang Jian, suffering from a swollen abdomen, was brought to the People's Hospital in Zhengzhou by his family. Director Qu Qingshan said that the examination showed that Mr. Zhang previously had ascites and urine poisoning, but the diseases had gotten worse and he now had cirrhosis of the liver and chronic kidney disease. "A simple kidney transplant will not resolve the fundamental problem for the patient" he went on to say. Mr. Zhang needed a liver and kidney transplant. Qu Qingshan said, "Luckily, after three blood matching tests, we found the right organs. At 4:00 p.m. on June 15, the transplant surgery was performed."

What is noteworthy is that "finding the matching organs" only took three weeks. Such a short time is impossible even for a single organ transplant in the West, not to mention transplanting both a liver and a kidney at the same time. This clearly indicates that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) maintains a large living organ bank (live people whose organs are to be harvested for transplant).

The People's Hospital of Zhengzhou is the Zhengzhou Number Five Hospital. It is on the list published by the CCP of medical institutes authorized to conduct human organ transplants.

Investigation Lead: The Number One Hospital Affiliated with Beijing University Has Performed Many Organ Transplants; Are They Doing "Human Testing?"

In November or December 2005, a medical team at the Number One Hospital Affiliated with Beijing University performed a lung transplant. The lead surgeon was Doctor Li, in his thirties. The source of the organ is unclear.

The patient was Miss Qu Yongyun, 22, from Quzhou County, Hebei Province. Her parents ran a small business selling auto parts.

At the time, Miss Qu had a hard time breathing. The doctor at the Number One Hospital said that she could only be saved by a lung transplant. Officials at the hospital said that they would provide the organ and post-transplant anti-rejection drugs free of charge. This medical case was called the first "No-Pain Surgery" in China.

It was said that many organ transplants were being been performed at the hospital then. It seems that they were doing "human testing." Now officials at the hospital refuse to cover the cost of the anti-rejection drugs since they are very expensive. The patient's family could not reach an agreement with hospital officials about the expense and they plan to sue.

Investigation Lead: Doctor Li Xin from the Cardiothoracic Surgery Department of the Hospital Affiliated with Luzhou Medical Institute in Sichuan Province Performed Heart Transplants

The July 10, 2008 edition of the Chengdu Commercial newspaper published an article titled "Two Patients with Heart Transplants Care for Each Other" on page 14 (the article is available at http://news.idoican.com.cn/cdsb/html/2008-07/10/content_8124018.htm). It said that five heart transplants had been performed in Sichuan Province since 2005. Two patients survived. One was Mr. Zhong Shouguo and the other was Mr. Luo Jiangming. The surgeon was Doctor Li Xin from the Cardiothoracic Surgery Department of the Hospital Affiliated with Luzhou Medical Institute.

Doctor Li Xin performed the heart transplant for Mr. Zhong Shouguo on June 28, 2008 and for Mr. Luo Jiangming from Jian'an County, Sichuan Province on January 19, 2007.

Mr. Zhong Shouguo, 60, is from the Fourth Group of Lianmeng Village, Foyin Town, Hejiang County, Luzhou City, Sichuan Province. The Sichuan News reported that the heart donor for Mr. Zhong Shouguo was a thirty-year-old young man.

We ask for an investigation into the sources of the five hearts.
