Peter MacKay's letter on Organ Harvesting

Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs Peter MacKay states his concerns about organ harvesting targeting Falun Gong practitioners in China in a letter he wrote to a practitioner.

  • "We continue our active efforts to seek verification and corroboration with respect to allegations of organ harvesting from prisoners in China."

  • "I can assure you that the Government of Canada will continue to express clearly its concerns regarding human rights and fundamental freedoms to the Chinese authorities." (more)
