Transplant Surgeon Shocked by the CCP’s Organ Harvesting Crimes

Saber Mannai is a Tunisian doctor who specializes in liver transplants. He was in France for training. He said he had been to North Korea for organ transplant training.

He saw the message about the CCP harvesting organs from living Falun Dafa practitioners and wanted to know what was happening. He was shocked to learn that the CCP persecutes practitioners who live by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and even kills them to sell their organs. “This is a disaster!” he said.

“Organ transplantation is medical science and a method of treatment. It is bound by rules and requires the consent of the organ donor or the family of the deceased,” he said. “Human organs cannot be stolen [like the CCP is doing]. This is a real disaster. I didn’t know this. I’m going to read this material.

“This is a real disaster,” he repeated, “It’s really sad. It’s a shame. My heart aches. Medical science is not meant for this. It’s meant for treatment, for healing, for saving lives. It’s not meant for killing. This is to take people’s lives. This is too inhumane.”

Claude Fridelance, a retired English teacher, was taking a walk with his wife. After learning about the CCP’s crimes of harvesting organs from living practitioners, he said, “Persecution is absolutely unacceptable, intolerable, and should not exist.”
