China is harvesting thousands of human organs from its Uighur Muslim minority, UN human-rights body hears

China was accused on Tuesday of harvesting human organs from persecuted groups in the country.

The China Tribunal, a group that’s investigating the organ harvesting, said at a tense meeting of the United Nations Human Rights Council that the Chinese government was taking hearts, kidneys, lungs, and skin from groups including Uighur Muslims and members of the Falun Gong religious group.

The China Tribunal describes itself as an “independent, international people’s tribunal, and was backed by the International Coalition to End Transplant Abuse in China, an Australian human rights charity made up of lawyers, academics, and medical professionals.

China has denied carrying out mass harvesting of organs in any circumstance.

Addressing UN representatives, a lawyer for the China Tribunal, Hamid Sabi, said the group had proof of the organ harvesting.

Sabi said the group had found that China was committing “crimes against humanity” by harvesting organs from religious minorities like the Uighurs and members of Falun Gong, which has been banned and widely persecuted by the Chinese government.

“Forced organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience, including the religious minorities of Falun Gong and Uighurs, has been committed for years throughout China on a significant scale,” Sabi said in a video published on the China Tribunal website.

Sabi was presenting evidence from the tribunal’s final report, published in June, which found that a “very substantial number” of prisoners were “killed to order” by the Chinese government.

They were “cut open while still alive for their kidneys, livers, hearts, lungs, cornea and skin to be removed and turned into commodities for sale,” the report said.

The body parts were then used for medical purposes, it said, citing extremely short wait times for organ transplants in Chinese hospitals as evidence of the practice.

The report was led by Sir Geoffrey Nice, a British lawyer who was the lead prosecutor in the trial of Slobodan Milosevic, the former Yugoslavian president.

Sabi told the UN council on Tuesday that China’s efforts involved “hundreds of thousands of victims,” describing it as “one of the worst mass atrocities of this century.”

He did not specify how many organs the China Tribunal believes had been harvested, or the number taken from Uighurs and from Falun Gong members.

“Victim for victim and death for death, cutting out the hearts and other organs from living, blameless, harmless, peaceable people constitutes one of the worst mass atrocities of this century,” he said.

“Organ transplantation to save life is a scientific and social triumph, but killing the donor is criminal.”

Reuters said China has insisted that it “stopped using organs from executed prisoners in 2015.”

The Chinese government did not immediately respond to Business Insider’s request for comment on Sabi’s testimony.

Sabi concluded by saying that it is the duty of international bodies like the UN to investigate the tribunal’s findings “not only in regard to the possible charge of genocide, but also in regard to crimes against humanity.”

most of those prisoners aren’t murderers or rapists. they are mostly low level drug users or political prisoners.

This is just another notch in China’s long belt of despicable human rights annihilations:

Hundreds of human rights lawyers (not even dissidents, just the LAWYERS who defended people) were snatched by gestapo all over China in what is known as the 709 Crackdown.

One of those lawyers, Wang Quanzhang was sentenced to 4.5 years for “subversion of state power”. But that’s not enough. China actually went after Wang’s 6-year-old son, forcing him out of his school and banning any other school from taking him in.

A dissident, Wang Bingzhang was kidnapped by Chinese agents in Vietnam and sentenced to life in prison after a closed trial that lasted 1 day.
A man wore a t-shirt with the word “Xitler” on it and was disappeared. Eventually he was tried for “subversion of state power” while barred from meeting with lawyers

Another man, Wang Meiyu hold up a placard calling for Xi’s resignation & democracy. He was arrested for “picking quarrels”. He ended up dead in custody.
A woman live streamed herself splashing ink on a Xi poster. She was disappeared. Her last social media update: “Right now there are a group of people wearing uniforms outside my door. I’ll go out after I change my clothes. I did not commit a crime. The people and groups that hurt me are the ones who are guilty”. Later on there was report of her being sent to a psychiatric hospital

After the ink-splash woman’s disappearance her father made a series of broadcast to call attention to her plight. He ended up getting taken away by the police in the middle of a live stream

5 people associated with a Hong Kong bookstore that sold titles such as “Xi Jinping and His Six Women” were disappeared. Only one managed to escape back to HK. He held a press briefing to tell the world about his kidnapping by China. He’s now in exile in Taiwan. The other 4 are still somewhere in China.
And, of course

1.5 million – 3 millions Uyghurs rounded up in concentration camps
A Canadian journalist wanted to debunk reports of Chinese anti-Muslim repression so he went on a stage-managed show tour put on by China. That means he only saw a fake Potemkin village that China actually thought was acceptable by Western standard. But the brutality of even this fake Potemkin village stunned him. Now imagine what’s really happening in the real concentration camps where millions of Uyghurs are being held. Imagine how bad the true situation is.

Using minorities & political prisoners as free organ farms. A doctor’s eye witness account: ‘The prisoner was brought in, tied hand and foot, but very much alive. The army doctor in charge sliced him open from chest to belly button and exposed his two kidneys. Then the doctor ordered Zheng to remove the man’s eyeballs. Hearing that, the dying prisoner gave him a look of sheer terror, and Zheng froze. “I can’t do it,” he told the doctor, who then quickly scooped out the man’s eyeballs himself.’
Call for retraction of 400 Chinese scientific papers amid fears organs came from Chinese prisoners

15 Chinese studies retracted due to fears they used Chinese prisoners’ organs
Cultural genocide (and organ harvests, of course). A uyghur’s testimony: “First, children were stopped from learning about the Quran, then from going to mosques. It was followed by bans on ramadan, growing beards, giving Islamic names to your baby, etc. Then our language was attacked – we didn’t get jobs if we didn’t know Mandarin. Our passports were collected, we were told to spy on each other, innocent Uyghur prisoners were killed for organ harvesting”
China is moving beyond Uyghur and cracking down on its model minority Hui Muslim. ‘Afraid We Will Become The Next Xinjiang’: China’s Hui Muslims Face Crackdown: “The same restrictions that preceded the Xinjiang crackdown on Uighur Muslims are now appearing in Hui-dominated regions. Hui mosques have been forcibly renovated or shuttered, schools demolished, and religious community leaders imprisoned. Hui who have traveled internationally are increasingly detained or sent to reeducation facilities in Xinjiang.”
