(Minghui.org) Professor Yaakov J. Lavee is an Israeli doctor and Director of the Heart Transplantation Unit at Sheba Medical Center, the largest hospital in Israel. He is also the former President of Israel's Transplantation Society. Professor Lavee was interviewed last week in Taiwan while participating in an international conference against the forced organ harvesting taking place in China. The interview was broadcast at prime time on channel 1 (IBA) on Saturday, March 2, 2013, on the popular weekly news program "Ro'eem Olam."

In his interview, Professor Lavee shared how his suspicions have risen about the gruesome practice of forced organ harvesting in China, and how, as a descendent of holocaust victims, he felt he could not stand aside.

In his introduction, the host of the TV program said: "The issue of forced organ harvesting in China is a grim concern for doctors and transplant experts, who are participating today in an international conference in Taipei, Taiwan. Among them is Israeli Professor Yaakov J. Lavee, head of the Transplant Unit in Sheba Hospital in Tel-Hashomer. Professor Lavee is committed to ending the forced organ harvesting in China. From Taipei, we received the following report from NTDTV, the American-based independent Chinese Television network."

Professor Lavee is one of many conscientious doctors and transplant experts that belong to the voluntary international organization Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting (DAFOH) http://www.dafoh.org/.
