Kilgour/Matas release updated version of "Report into Organ Harvesting of Falun Gong Practitioners in China"

Charles Lynch Conference Room,
130-S Centre Block,
Parliament Buildings, Ottawa

Ottawa – David Matas and David Kilgour are to release their revised report into organ snatching from Falun Gong practitioners in China on January 31, 2007, following travels to approximately thirty national capitals to gather more evidence and raise public awareness about the issue.

The second report presents more evidence, including interviews with organ recipients from various countries. “There is no doubt that Canadians are among those going to China from many parts of the world for transplants and we have asked the Canadian Council For Donation and Transplantation to let us know the extent of it,” said Matas. “Only last week, we learned that such patients needing aftercare are required in some provinces to indicate where their operation occurred,” Kilgour added.

Copies of the revised report will be available at 9 a.m. in 130-S Centre Block. The earlier version can be accessed here in 18 languages.

Contacts: David Matas 613 808 3563 c (as of Jan 30th at 8am)
David Kilgour 613 747 7854 (until Jan 31st at 1.30 pm)
