No one could possibly think having Hepatitis C is a good thing, but it was a blessing in disguise for one person, and the diagnosis more than likely saved her life.

After her arrest in 2000 in China for practicing Falun Gong, Jennifer Zeng underwent intense interrogation regarding her health records at a Labor Camp in China’s Daxing County.

In an interview with Fox News, Zeng described how she was intensely questioned about her health, and she informed authorities she had suffered from hepatitis C before taking up Falun Gong. Her blood was drawn, and it seems she narrowly escaped having her organs removed for sale to wealthy individuals from across the globe, who were desperately waiting for a transplant in China.

“Twelve days later, my (cellmate) died as a result of forced feeding,” Zeng told Fox News. “Having hepatitis C might have unqualified me as an organ donor.”

For almost two decades, the Communist regime has been incarcerating mostly followers of Falun Gong, but also other minority religious groups, for removal of their organs. The victims are often alive before vital organs are forcibly removed, many times without any anesthetic.

This horror has been covered up by the Chinese regime, and very hard to prove. That is, until recently.

The China Tribunal, initiated by the International Coalition to End Transplant Abuse in China (ETAC), was an independent, international people’s tribunal that, after assessing all available evidence over the course of 12 months, unanimously concluded, “Commission of Crimes Against Humanity against the Falun Gong and Uyghurs has been proved beyond reasonable doubt.”

The investigators questioned more than 50 witnesses, experts, investigators, and analysts in public hearings held in April and in December 2018. The tribunal also evaluated written submissions, investigative reports, and academic papers.

Chairman of the Tribunal was Sir Geoffrey Nice QC, who had previously led the prosecution of Slobodan Milosevic in the International Criminal Trial for the former Yugoslavia. He declared that with “certainty, in China, forced organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience has been practiced for a substantial period of time.”

“Extraordinarily short waiting times for organs to be available for transplantation”

“Forced organ harvesting is of unmatched wickedness—on a death for death basis—with the killings by mass crimes committed in the last century,” Nice said in a prepared statement.

The growing transplant business in China is estimated to be worth more than $1 billion annually, and overwhelming evidence was presented by the tribunal.

“Forced organ harvesting has been committed for years, and Falun Gong practitioners have been one—and probably the main—source of organ supply,” the report concluded, pointing to the growing transplant industry already worth more than $1 billion annually.

Some witnesses who provided testimony to the tribunal were also interviewed by Fox News.

Han Yu was kidnapped on July 20, 2015, and held in detention for 37 days in Beijing’s Haidian District Detention Center.

She recalled how her father, also a Falun Gong practitioner, had disappeared in China’s prison system in 2004 after being arrested for practicing the peaceful meditation way, and three months later, the family was notified of his death. It took a month before authorities allowed them to view his body at Liangxiang District Xiao Zhuang village morgue, all the while they were kept under strict surveillance.

“I saw obvious injuries on his face, even after the makeup, the severe bruise below his left eye stood out. There was a trace of stitches starting from the throat down to where his clothes covered,” Yu recalled. “I tried to unbutton the clothes, the police saw and quickly dragged me out. Later another family member went in and continued to unbutton and found stitches that went all the way to the stomach.”

There was no autopsy, and authorities quickly cremated his body.

“We were not even allowed to cry when he was buried,” Hu said. “After I heard about organ harvesting, I couldn’t imagine what had happened to my father before his death. It happened, and it is happening,” she added.

Jiang Li also believes her father, Jiang Xiqing, was murdered for his organs.

He was arrested in May 2008 and sent to a forced labor camp. Jiang and three members of her family visited him on Jan. 27, 2009.

“His mental and physical health was normal. Then at 3:40 p.m. the next day, the labor camp called my brother and said he had died and immediately hung up,” she said. “Seven of my family members arrived at the mortuary house at 10:30 p.m. with the guidance of police officers. They read out the regulations—we could see the body for only five minutes, no cameras or communication devices, and we could only go to the freezer room to see Jiang’s head and not his whole body.”

However, Jiang’s sister reached down to touch her father’s face and screamed; his body was warm—he was still alive.

“We pulled out my father’s body halfway. We touched his chest, and it was warm. He was wearing a down jacket. My older sister prepared to perform CPR,” Li continued. “But were each forcibly dragged out of the freezer by four people. Uniformed and plainclothes officers pushed my father’s body into the freezer. They demanded that we quickly sign for cremation and pay the fees.”

After trying to gain justice for his murder, the family have been intimidated, their lawyers have been imprisoned, their house raided, and Li was fired for no apparent reason, and detained.

The family has since attempted to seek some sense of justice – their lawyers ended up behind bars, and their family home was raided. In 2010, Li said she was terminated from her job without explanation and placed in detention.

Many survivors describe the constant physical tests, ultrasounds, blood tests, and X-rays they were subjected to while in detention. This is further evidence of the regime’s horror plan of selecting victims for forced organ harvesting.

The China Organ Harvest Research Center (COHRC) also testified before the China Tribunal. It had conducted years of undercover work, and in July published its own damning report, “On-demand killing of prisoners of conscience is driven by the state, run on an industrial scale and carried out by both military and civilian institutions.”

The practice of forcibly removing organs from prisoners of conscience was believed to have started in China in the 1990s but escalated after the persecution of Falun Gong began in July 1999.

“China later claimed that death row prisoners consented to donate their organs to the state to redeem themselves for the crimes they had committed against the state, a practice China claimed to have stopped in January 2015.

However, the explosion of organ transplant activities in China from 2000, together with reports of thousands of transplant tourists going to China to purchase organs, suggests a larger supply of organs than could be sourced from executed criminals alone,” the tribunal stated. “The scale of the Chinese transplant industry, together with other evidence, points to the possibility that China is involved in forced organ harvesting and selling for profit organs from prisoners of conscience.”

The tribunal affirmed that it “has had no evidence that the significant infrastructure associated with China’s transplantation industry has been dismantled and absent a satisfactory explanation as to the source of readily available organs concludes that forced organ harvesting continues till today.”

“It is just so bizarre it was hard to believe. That (governments) can defile a human being like that,” Shawn Steel, California’s Republican National (RNC) Committee member, told Fox News. “Medical tourism is big business; if you are wealthy, you can get the organ you need in a couple of weeks. Thousands are being sacrificed every year, and it is not being discussed.”

Steel condemned the horror practice and introduced a resolution to the RNC, which was adopted unanimously in August.

Falun Gong, an ancient meditation practice brought to the public by Mr. Li Hongzhi in China and taught free of charge, had an estimated 70 million to 100 million followers in China before 1999, according to the Falun Dafa Information Center. The communist regime began its crackdown on the practice on July 20, 1999, almost 20 years to the day of the historic meeting of the victims of religious persecution with President Trump at the White House.

The president met with 27 victims of religious persecution at the White House on Wednesday, July 17. It was part of an effort to effect change toward religious freedom in countries where it is not an option.
President Trump spoke of religious freedom to the survivors of persecution, “In our Bill of Rights the first liberty is religious liberty. Each of us has the right to follow the dictates of our conscience and the demands of our religious conviction. We know that if people are not free to practice their faith, then all of the freedoms are at risk.”

After Falun Gong was brought out for teaching in China, it wasn’t long before millions of people were following it.

They soon became a state-sanctioned target for what is now one of, if not the, biggest crime against humanity in human history.


The original article incorrectly identified the InternationalCoalition to end Transplant Abuse in China as a human rights charity delivering a conclusive finds.  It now reads “The China Tribunal, initiated by the International Coalition to End Transplant Abuse in China (ETAC), was an independent, international people’s tribunal that, after assessing all available evidence over the course of 12 months, unanimously concluded, “Commission of Crimes Against Humanity against the Falun Gong and Uyghurs has been proved beyond reasonable doubt.” The BL regrets the error.||e60156d77__
