Taiwan: Miaoli County Council Passes a Resolution Condemning the CCP for Harvesting Organs from Living Falun Gong Practitioners

On December 7th, 2006, the Miaoli County Council held the second scheduled conference of the 16th Council and passed a resolution entitled "Condemn the Chinese Communist Regime’s Illegal Human Organ Trafficking."

The council urged the City Health Department to help the local medical organisation to set up relevant ethical rules and called on concerned organisations to inform those who intend go to the Mainland to receive organ transplants that they may be violating the law by receiving organs from people who were murdered. The council also suggested using both governmental and non-governmental channels to inform the public about the safety issues and legal issues regarding organ transplants in Mainland China.

The Miaoli County Council called upon the CCP to stop the persecution against Falun Gong and the organ harvesting. The Council urged the government and international society to condemn the CCP’s brutality. The Council requested that the CCP open all detention centres, forced labour camps, and medical facilities to the international organisations to investigate the organ harvesting.

Mrs. Chou, a parliament member, said that, since March 2006, several witnesses have verified that thousands of Falun Gong practitioners are jailed in several concentration camps all over the country and that the CCP harvests organs from those practitioners. The CCP’s own media also reported that there are sufficient organ sources in the Shenyang area [to handle any transplant request]. All of this evidence support the existence of the organ harvesting.

Three weeks after the international media exposed the crime of organ harvesting, instead of clearly responding to the allegation, the CCP hastily published the "Interim Regulations for Human Organ Transplant Practice." However, the regulations did not take effect until July 1st, 2006, and thus people suspect the regime was allowing time for all evidence of the crimes to be destroyed.

According to non-governmental statistics, more than 3,000 Koreans have received organ transplants in China in the recent years. Many Taiwanese have also gone to Mainland China for organs. The Department of Health in China claims that all the organs were from death-sentenced criminals, but only 1000 death-sentenced criminals were documented. Mrs. Chou suggests that each country's government should inform the public as soon as possible that China’s organ transplants involves the illegal, forced harvesting of organs from unwilling, living donors and that people should not go to China for an organ transplant before relevant laws are enacted in China.

Mrs. Chou noted that the organ harvesting is very brutal. She called upon all the council members to support this resolution to condemn the CCP.

Falun Gong practitioners clarified the truth of the organ harvesting to the president and the vice president of the council and expressed a hope that the council would help to rescue practitioners in China. The president and the vice president of the council supported the practitioners. PM Chou Yuman proposed the resolution and all the members of the council supported it.

So far, 16 counties and cities in Taiwan, including Chiayi County, Yilan County, Keelung Cinty, Hualien County, Tainan City, Yunling County, Pingtung County, Penghu County, Changhwa County, Hsinchu County, Taichung City, Taitung County, Kaohsiung City, Taoyuan County, Taichung County, and Miaoli County, have passed resolutions to condemn the CCP’s atrocities of harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners.
