Epoch Times: SYDNEY—Calls have again been raised about the need for an independent investigation into illegal organ harvesting in China.
The motion calls on the house to note their concern about the allegations raised in the Canadian report, Bloody Harvest: Report into Allegations of Organ Harvesting of Falun Gong Practitioners in China, that was first published in 2006.
In the report, former Canadian Secretary of State and lawyer David Kilgour, along with Canadian humans rights lawyer David Matas, cite over 50 sources of evidence, including hospitals in China who gave voice-recorded admissions that they were sourcing organs for transplant from Falun Gong practitioners in China. The two lawyers concluded that practitioners of the ancient meditation and exercise practice were indeed being used to service a lucrative and burgeoning transplant industry.
Sev Ozdowski, OAM, Australian Human Rights Commissioner from 2000 to 2005, said NSW Greens MP Ian Cohen should be congratulated for once again bringing the issue to the public’s attention, saying “organ harvesting” was “abhorrent” and
'Stealing people’s organs for profit should be stopped,' Says Sev Ozdowski.
“one of the worst crimes of genocide against a particular group of Chinese population”.
