Xu’s article was very soon unpublished from the Caijing website and other Chinese media did not pick it up. During its brief time online, the article attracted strong interest, and its removal likely reflected a power struggle taking place behind the scenes
In showing there was systematic involvement by officials in the
activities of Zheng Wei’s gang, Caijing hinted at much greater crimes
carried out by the regime. A network such as Zheng described needs to
have been in place to carry out the atrocity of forced, live organ
harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners and other prisoners of
Harvesting organs from Falun Gong practitioners began soon after
then-Chinese Communist Party head Jiang Zemin launched a campaign in
July 1999 to eradicate the spiritual practice. He established the 610
Office, an extra-constitutional Party organ, to carry this out.
“There is a mechanism in China that facilitates 10,000 organ
transplantations per year, many of them scheduled on two- to four-weeks
notice,” said Dr. Torsten Trey, executive director of Doctors Against
Forced Organ Harvesting, a group of medical doctors who are working to
end illegal organ harvesting.
“The findings of Xu Qianchuan come very close to what we have already
anticipated in our analysis,” said Trey. “There are plenty of hints
that suggest that military hospitals, the courts, and likely the 610
Office are involved in this organized, illegal organ business.”
Canadian international human rights lawyer David Matas, co-author
with former Canadian Secretary of State (Asia-Pacific) David Kilgour of
the groundbreaking investigative report “Bloody Harvest: The Killing of
Falun Gong For Their Organs,” estimates that approximately 8,000 of the
organs transplanted each year are taken from Falun Gong practitioners,
Caijing magazine is rumored to be closely associated with the new CCP
head, Xi Jinping, who has been involved in a power struggle with Jiang
Zemin and his faction.
Both Caijing’s investigative report into organ harvesting and the
April 6 exposé by Caijing’s Lens magazine of torture in Masanjia have
put pressure on Jiang.
With both stories, crimes Jiang Zemin has sought to keep in the dark have been brought closer to disclosure.
