Taipei Bar Association Condemns Organ Harvesting in China

Largest association of lawyers in Taiwan calls for legislation prohibiting trafficked organs

The Taipei Bar Association Committee for Human Rights, with endorsement by the bar’s board members, released a statement condemning the CCP’s conduct. The statement is expected to help pave the road for later legislation.

Mr. Weng Kuo-Yen, lawyer and Chairman of the Taipei Bar Association’s Committee for Human Rights, said, “We especially do not wish to see Taiwanese people traveling to mainland China for organ transplants, thus becoming co-conspirators in the CCP’s criminal enterprise of illegal organ harvesting.”

David Matas and David Kilgour, co-authors of the book Bloody Harvest, investigated over 50 organ recipients, including those from Taiwan, who went to China for organ transplants. Quoting from that book, David Kilgour read, “Four more sets of kidneys were tried out, until the 8th set of kidneys worked, were compatible. He is doing fine now, but you can imagine eight human beings, probably Falun Gong practitioners, at least some of them, have been killed, murdered, if you like … .”

 On Feb. 25, Matas said to listeners of Radio Taiwan International that although many changes have taken place since the CCP’s organ harvesting was exposed seven years ago, the crime of organ harvesting is continuing, and a global effort to end it is necessary.
