Special Organ Harvesting Bulletin



Canadians David Matas, an international human rights lawyer, and David Kilgour, former Secretary of State for Asia Pacific and former Member of Parliament, have jointly issued a 45-page investigation report about the allegation of organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners in China. The July 6 report concluded that:

The allegations here are so shocking that they are almost impossible to believe. The allegations, if true, would represent a grotesque form of evil which, despite all the depravations humanity has seen, would be new to this planet.

We have come to the regrettable conclusion that the allegations are true. … the government of China and its agencies in numerous parts of the country, in particular hospitals but also detention centres and 'people's courts', since 1999 have put to death a large but unknown number of Falun Gong prisoners of conscience. Their vital organs, including hearts, kidneys, livers and corneas, were virtually simultaneously seized involuntarily for sale at high prices…
It appears to us that many human beings belonging to a peaceful voluntary organization made illegal seven years ago by President Jiang because he thought it might threaten the dominance of the Communist Party of China have been in effect executed by medical practitioners for their organs.

The report recommends that governments request that the United Nations investigate organ harvesting from Falun Gong, which violates UN accords; that governments withhold visas from Chinese doctors seeking overseas transplant training; that governments discourage their citizens from receiving transplants in China; and that “All detention facilities, including forced labour camps, must be opened for international community inspection.”

The report is available at: It includes transcripts of phone conversations between investigators and Chinese hospitals, interviews with witnesses, and graphs.


The CCP responded to the Canadian report by accusing the two of working for Falun Gong, trying to smear China’s image and spreading rumors, while again calling Falun Gong an “evil cult.” In response, Kilgour and Matas released a statement saying:

The statement of the Government of China was released the same day as our Report…It means that the Government of China has engaged in no investigations to determine whether or not what the report contains is true…. We are not Falun Gong practitioners. We did this report as volunteers and were not paid for this report by Falun Gong or anyone. Our report represents our own judgment…

…calling the Falun Gong an evil cult exemplifies the vilification heaped on the Falun Gong. It is this sort of slander which, in China, depersonalizes and dehumanizes the Falun Gong and makes possible the violation of their basic human rights. Calling a group of innocent civilians an "evil cult" is a form of incitement to hatred, unacceptable in Canada.

Vancouver Sun (July 6): “The Conservative government is planning to investigate allegations in a new report that the Chinese government and its agencies are torturing religious prisoners and harvesting their organs, Tory MP Deepak Obhrai indicated on Thursday.”
