An independent tribunal which has been investigating “forced organ harvesting” in China concluded that the act is widespread and on a significant scale.

Some of the organ extractions are said to have been conducted on live victims who died in the gruesome process.

The targetted groups are majorly the marginalized groups detained in Chinese prisons.

Many of the affected belong to Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline which was termed an ‘evil cult’ and banned by the Chinese government in the 1990s.

The organ transplant trade in China is said to be worth $1 billion.

Allegations of forced organ harvesting first came to light in 2001, after a strange boom in transplant activity. The waiting time is said to have reduced immensely, raising questions.

Chinese websites advertised hearts, lungs and kidneys for sale and available to book in advance, suggesting that the victims were killed on demand.

The Tribunal notes that forced organ harvesting is of unmatched wickedness even compared – on death for death basis.
