Four doctors were imprisoned in China after being found to have forcibly removed organs from a patient in an ambulance.

According to Wang Zhiyuan, the president of a non-governmental association that denounces this type of atrocities, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is responsible for such atrocities and is only using the case as false propaganda to impose the idea that they are fighting against organ harvesting when in truth it is a business that they have been carrying out for several years, and they manage it to perfection.

According to reports on FalunInfo.net, four doctors in eastern China were sentenced to prison for illegally harvesting organs from a patient named Li Peng in an unlicensed ambulance.

But the four doctors later appealed their sentences, arguing that what they did was a “state-backed” duty, as they were following the orders of hospital supervisors.

According to the CCP’s communist propaganda media, Li Peng’s liver ended up in a military hospital in Beijing where it was transplanted into someone else’s body. Her kidneys went to a hospital in neighboring Tianjin for the same purpose.

Interestingly, both hospitals have been identified by a U.S.-based non-profit organization as alleged centers for the forced removal of organs from living political prisoners, most notably practitioners of the Falun Gong or Falun Dafa discipline.

Falun Gong is a spiritual discipline whose practitioners have been subject to persecution by the Chinese regime since 1999. Millions of practitioners have reportedly been imprisoned in forced labor camps, psychiatric wards, and other facilities.

In the 2000s, damning investigations concluded that the Chinese Communist regime was systematically killing detained Falun Gong practitioners to forcibly harvest their organs for use in the illegal transplant trade.

The removal of Li Peng’s organs, for which the four doctors were arrested, was not carried out directly in a state-run facility. The CCP reportedly took advantage of this situation to expose the case in the media and thereby promote the idea that the state does not agree with such practices, as denounced by Wang Zhiyuan, president of the Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG).

According to the Falun Info report, “The case was publicized by state media and not censored, indicating that the Chinese regime was trying to use the story to divert attention from its state-sanctioned practice of forced organ harvesting.”

A month ago, WOIPFG published a report on an investigation conducted at the Jiangsu People’s Hospital. It reported that in November 2018, a doctor at the hospital, answered a phone inquiry by the WOIPFG investigator posing as a CCP official. He agreed to procure organs for transplant from Falun Gong followers, and the doctor also said that a liver transplant surgery could be arranged in less than two weeks.

The report includes several such investigations that clarify that unjust and brutal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners and a perverse business conducted by the CCP based on the illegal sale of organs forcibly removed from practitioners’ bodies continues to this day.
