New Witness: There Are Dozens of Similar Concentration Camps

      After the first two witnesses exposed the Sujiatun atrocities, another
      witness who identified himself as "a veteran military doctor in the
      General Logistics Department of the Shenyang Military Region" stepped
      forward to point out that the Sujiatun Concentration Camp indeed exists,
      organ harvesting and cremation of bodies is done routinely there, and some
      are even cremated while still alive. He stated that the Sujiatun hospital
      is only one of 36 similar concentration camps. Findings from the World
      Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong point to a
      similar situation.
      The Hospital in Sujiatun is Only One of 36 Similar Concentration Camps in

      According to this witness from the military system, the hospital in
      Sujiatun District is only one of 36 similar concentration camps across
      China. At present, the majority of detained Falun Gong practitioners are
      in prisons, forced labor camps and detention centers. They are transferred
      elsewhere on a large scale only when needed.
      This witness said that Heilongjiang, Jilin and Liaoning provinces imprison
      the largest number of Falun Gong practitioners. The concentration camp in
      Jiutai Area, Jilin Province is the 5th largest camp imprisoning Falun Gong
      practitioners in China. This camp alone detains over 14,000 Falun Gong

      Jilin Concentration Camp, Code Named 672-S, Imprisons over 120,000 People

      The veteran military doctor indicated, "From the information I have access
      to, the largest concentration camp is in Jilin Province. The concentration
      camp code named 672-S imprisons over 120,000 people. A large number of
      Falun Gong practitioners, felons and prisoners of conscience from all over
      China are there, but I do not know its address."
      There Were Indeed over 10,000 People Detained in the Underground
      Concentration Camp of the Sujiatun District Hospital Prior to 2005 and in
      Early 2005
      The witness said, "In the underground concentration camp of the Sujiatun
      District Hospital, there were indeed over 10,000 people kept there in
      early 2005, but at the present time, the number of detainees there is
      maintained at 600-750. Many detainees have been transferred to other
      concentration camps."
      It Takes Only One Day to Transfer 5,000 People
      He continued, "You can't find much evidence even if you enter Sujiatun
      District to investigate. It takes only one day to transfer 5,000 people in
      a closed freight train on a special route. I have witnessed a specially
      dispatched freight train transferring over 7,000 people in one trip from
      Tianjin to the
      Jilin area. It ran at night, guarded by the army. Everyone on the train
      was handcuffed to specially designed handrails like a rotisserie

      The World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong
      (WOIPFG) Found that Many Cities Have Participated in the Crimes
      After the Sujiatun atrocities were exposed, WOIPFG launched an urgent
      investigation across China. Results show that the crimes of harvesting
      Falun Gong practitioners' organs have happened and are still happening in
      at least in Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, Hunan, Shandong, Liaoning, and
      The excerpts of several investigative telephone conversations are as below.

      (An Undisclosed Hospital in Guangzhou City)

      Caller: How long will I have to wait for a kidney?

      Doctor: About a week after you check into the hospital.

      Caller: But I have to have a fresh and healthy kidney, and I want one from
      a live donor. You are not going to give me a kidney from a dead person,
      are you?

      Doctor: Of course we will give you a high-quality kidney!

      Caller: Do you have one like the ones I hear about from Falun Gong people?

      Doctor: What we have in our hospital are all this kind.
      (An Undisclosed Medical College in Tianjin)

      Caller: The doctor said the kidney is very good and came from someone who
      practices qigong. I asked what type of qigong, and he told me the man
      practices Falun Gong. I heard that those who practice Falun Gong are

      Doctor: Of course. We also have kidneys from Falun Gong practitioners
      here. We harvest kidneys from people who are still breathing or have a
      heartbeat. So far we have had about a dozen such cases this year (2006)...
      Of course, the supplier's health is a very important factor. The supplier
      has to be young and healthy. Moreover, the time period where the warm
      blood supply to the kidney is cut off has to be reduced to a minimum or
      even to none. In this case, there was no lack of warm blood supply.
      (An Undisclosed Hospital in Shandong Province)

      Caller: I want a kidney from those who practice Falun Gong, one that's
      totally healthy.

      Doctor: Well...We will definitely have a lot of suppliers like that in
      April. The number of those suppliers is gradually increasing.

      Caller: Why are you going to have more in April?

      Doctor: I cannot tell you that because this involves... Anyway, there is
      no need to go into that. I cannot go into that with you.
      The Chinese Communist Party's Top Level Leadership Agreed to Deal With
      Class Enemies With Any Means
      According to witness, the Chinese Communist Party has openly declared
      Falun Gong to be "class enemies", turning Falun Gong practitioners into
      the target of its most severe suppression. The witness said that according
      to the latest decisions, the Chinese Communist Party's Central Committee
      agreed to treat Falun Gong practitioners as "class enemies" and to handle
      them in any economically beneficial manner without having to report to
      higher authorities. In other words, Falun Gong practitioners, like many
      felons in China, are no longer regarded as human beings, but as raw
      materials for commercial products. They have become commodities.
      According to the witness from the military system, according to "the
      country's regulations," the provincial government has the authority to
      establish "recycling organizations" to process felons under the
      supervision of the military region in the province. This practice was
      established by a legal document that the Chinese Communist Party's Central
      Military Committee established as early as 1962. This practice continues
      to this day. According the regulations in the document, death penalty
      prisoners and felons convicted of serious crimes may be processed
      according to the development needs of the state or of socialism. During
      the Great Cultural Revolution (1966-1976), the most extreme way to process
      these prisoners was to use their bodies for food. The second was to use
      them as slave labor for construction or line production work.

      According to the witness, after a 1984 amendment, it became legal to
      harvest organs from felons. The police and judicial departments perform
      organ harvests on living prisoners before cremating their bodies.
      Sometimes, they injure the prisoners in a show execution before they
      perform organ harvests on the injured prisoners. They then cremate their
      bodies. Since 1992, such a practice has become public. Due to the
      development of many related businesses, human bodies, live or dead, have
      become profitable raw materials.

World Organization to Investigate the persecution of Falun Gong                   Friday, 31 March 2006                   Investigative Report of Human Organ Harvesting from Alive                   Abducted Falun Gong Practitioners at the Sujiatun                   Concentration Camp                   (Part II)                   March 30, 2006                   Introduction                   The World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun                   Gong (WOIPFG) has confirmed in their investigations that the                   Sujiatun District Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital in                   Shenyang City, also known as the Liaoning Province Thrombosis                   Treatment Center of Integrated Chinese and Western Medicine                   (the Thrombosis Hospital for short, below) had set up an                   unlawful crematorium to burn the bodies and destroy evidence.                   The existence of a huge live human organ bank in the Shenyang                   City area has been verified. The live harvesting of organs for                   transplants from unlawfully detained Falun Gong practitioners                   were found in not only at the Sujiatun area but also at many                   other places throughout Mainland China.                   I. It is Confirmed Again that the Hospital Boiler at the                   Sujiatun Thrombosis Hospital Used as Crematorium                   As an eyewitness pointed out, the Thrombosis Hospital was the                   place where organs of Falun Gong practitioners were harvested                   while they were still alive [1]. According to our                   investigation, although a funeral parlor exist in the Sujiatun                   District [2], human bodies indeed have been cremated inside                   the hospital boiler. Some people involved in this gruesome                   process of burning bodies have collections of rings and other                   belongings from the corpses [3]. According to the 1997-issued                   Interment Management Regulation from the Chinese State                   Council, funeral work was managed by the civil administration                   department at each level. No one is authorized to build a                   crematory facility without approval [4]. The Thrombosis                   Hospital dares to openly violate state regulations to cremate                   human bodies using a private boiler; this implicates them for                   having potentially dealt with a large number of corpses, to                   hide their actions from public scrutiny.                   II. A Huge Live Human Organ Bank Exists in Shenyang City                   Shenyang is one of few cities in the nation where organ                   transplants are performed on an extremely large scale                   We have discovered that as many as ten hospitals in Shenyang                   City have performed organ transplants. In 2005, 250 kidney                   transplants and 70 liver transplants were reported. By January                   2006, the General Hospital for the Shenyang Military Region                   (whose Urology Department is the military region’s kidney                   transplant center) has performed over 1,500 kidney                   transplants. [5] The No. 463 Hospital of the Chinese People’s                   Liberation Army (an Air Force hospital) in Shenyang City has                   topped the Shenyang area in Liaoning Province in terms of the                   numbers of homogeneous foreign body kidney transplants                   performed. By 2005, over 600 kidney transplants and 120 liver                   transplants have been performed in the No. 1 Adjunct Hospital                   of the China Medical University. [6] Due to the                   characteristics of the organ transplant surgeries, the                   large-scale development of organ transplants could only be                   feasible in area where supply is ample.                   Organ Supply Sources                   For traditional cultural ethics, Chinese people have always                   been conservative regarding the issue of organ donations.                   Thus, organ donors are rather scarce in China. According to                   widely circulated international reports and witness accounts,                   the customary source of transplant organs in Mainland China                   were those from death-row prisoners. [7] This is an undisputed                   fact in the international community. Due to the general                   practice of organ transplants in various areas in China, the                   organs from the death-row prisoners could only be used by                   local hospitals near the execution site of the prisoners, with                   a few exceptions. According to an Amnesty International                   report, about 2,000 prisoners were executed annually in China,                   [8] and the number of highest estimate could be as high as                   10,000 per year. According to our medical experts, the donor                   match of live kidney transplants between direct-related family                   members is 50%, but the possibility of a complete match                   between two non-family members is one out of several million.                   [9] So, considering factors such as tissue type matching, even                   in an incomplete match, the actual rate of utilization of                   organs from death prisoners is rather low.                   Applying the numbers to such a city like Shenyang, even if all                   usable organs from death- row prisoners that match the tissue                   type are utilized, the availability still cannot satisfy the                   annual quantity needed for actual transplant operations in                   that city. Yet, Wu Gang, associate professor of Organ                   Transplant Department in the No. 1 Adjunct Hospital of China                   Medical University stated, “At present, we have completely                   sufficient kidney sources in Shenyang!” [10]                   Waiting time for organ transplant                   Due to the lack of readily available kidney donors, the                   waiting time for a suitable kidney is lengthy. Even in the US                   where the sense of public organ donation is commonplace, a                   patient in the New England area usually needs to wait three to                   seven years in average for a kidney transplant, where medical                   institutions are abundant. According to the information from                   the foreign groups who organize people to go to China for                   organ transplant and results from the WOIPFG investigators, it                   only takes one week to one month to have a kidney transplant                   in China, including tissue type matching time. [11]                   The China International Transplantation Network Assistance                   Center (CITNAC) at the China Medical University in Shenyang                   City guaranteed one month and no longer than two months of                   waiting time for liver transplants. The waiting time to find a                   proper kidney is only one week, at most one month. If a                   problem arises during surgery with the provided kidney, they                   will guarantee another one in less than one week. [12] Because                   the kidney source for this possible emergency also need to                   match tissue type of the recipient, it is almost impossible to                   get a match from an executed prisoner or someone who died from                   an accident. The only likely source comes from a spare organ                   bank. Considering that a kidney has to be transplanted within                   24 hours, supplies at the spare organ bank must come from                   living people. Taking into account tissue type matching and                   other factors, the truth is that a spare live human organ bank                   with a quite huge cardinal number for tissue type matching and                   harvesting is in operation at any time.                   Providing organ transplant for foreigners                   CITNAC in Shenyang City was established in 2003. Through its                   website in five different languages (Japanese, Korean,                   English, Russian and Chinese), the center attracts patients                   around the world and claims that each year, more than 100                   kidney transplants and 20 liver transplants are performed at                   the center.                   Since 2004, more than 100 Japanese patients received organ                   transplants in Shenyang City alone. [13]                   From 2003 to 2005, more than 3,000 South Korean citizens went                   to China for organ transplants.                   Voice of America has reported on a person in Vancouver who is                   conducting international business on kidney transplant and has                   arranged for many Canadian patients travelling to China for                   kidney transplant surgeries.                   III. Sujiatun Concentration Camp is not the only one; at least                   eight provinces and cities have concentration camps for live                   harvesting of human organs from abducted Falun Gong                   practitioners                   According to official numbers from China, from 1991 to 1998,                   only 78 liver transplants were performed nationally. However,                   since the year 1999 when the ban on Falun Gong started, the                   number multiplied quickly, with 118 liver transplant surgeries                   in 1999, 254 in 2000 and 486 in 2001. By 2001 the liver                   transplant surgeries totaled 996. [14] By 2003, the number                   drastically increased to over 3,000, [15] which means that the                   nation-wide supplies of organs since 1999 have increased                   noticeably. We showcased liver transplants as example here                   because without the liver, a single organ, the donor could not                   survive after the liver is removed.                   Investigations from the WOIPFG has shown that organs from                   Falun Gong practitioners were used for transplant in provinces                   and cities such as Henan, Shandong, Shanghai, Guangzhou,                   Beijing, Tianjin, Liaoning, Hunan and Hubei, but probably                   others also. Hospital staff and directly participating doctors                   have expressed that they can provide Falun Gong practitioners’                   organs. [16] Based on our initial investigation, we are able                   to conclude that Sujiatun Concentration Camp is not the only                   one where live organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners                   for transplant purposes took place; such type of concentration                   camps exist in most part of China.                   We have documented a few cases here. More details will follow                   in a separate report:                   Case No. 1 (an adjunct hospital of one medical university in                   Hunan Province)                   Doctor: The organs we chose were from young and healthy                   person. We would absolutely not use those from the elderly.                   Investigator: Are there any from Falun Gong practitioners?                   Doctor: You should rest for sure about it. (Note: which means                   “absolutely”)                   Case No. 2 (a hospital in Shandong Province)                   Investigator: a kidney from a person who practices Falun Gong                   is disease-free; do you have any of those types…                   Doctor: Umh…We have more and more such kind now, and in April                   we will sure to get even more.                   Investigator: Why there are more in April?                   Doctor: I cannot not tell you about it, because it relates                   to…it doesn’t mean…We don’t need to explain to you about it                   because it cannot be explained…                   Case No. 3 (a hospital in Guangzhou City)                   Investigator: How long should we wait for a kidney transplant?                   Doctor: If you come over, you only need to wait for about a                   week.                   Investigator: But the kidney for transplant should be healthy                   and fresh, better from a live donor. You would not use an                   organ from a dead person, right?                   Doctor: We will of course use the good one!                   Investigator: Are there any from people who practice Falun                   Gong?                   Doctor: The ones we use here are all this type.                   Case No. 4 (a medical university in Tianjin City)                   Investigator: The doctor said that the kidney source is very                   good because the person practiced Qigong. When asked which                   kind of Qiqong, the reply was Falun Gong. Is it true that                   those who practice Falun Gong have better health? ...                   Hospital staff: Of course, we have this kind here as well…the                   organs were from persons who did still breathed or had a heart                   beat. We will have some too; we have got more than ten kidneys                   of such kind so far this year…Of course, the quality of the                   organ supplier is a key factor, which means that the person                   must be young and the time period for warm blood shortage is                   very short after removal [when blood supply is insufficient                   and the kidney stays at normal body temperature]; sometimes we                   even don’t have this period of warm blood shortage. The kidney                   of such type has never had this problem, so it must be very                   good for recovery of the patient in the long run.
