A new report has concluded that figures disclosed by the Chinese Government conform almost precisely to a mathematical formula.

The publication of the first ever scientific analysis of China’s official organ donation data has cast a disturbing light on China’s forced organ harvesting crimes, finding that China is guilty of the ‘systematic falsification and manipulation of official organ transplant datasets.’

The findings of the analysis are the latest international breakthrough exposing a systematic process of falsification ‘from the central levels of the Chinese medical bureaucracy.’

The publication of the report comes as  global pressure is mounting on China to stop organ transplant crimes of the brutal murder of prisoners of conscience in a scandalous industry estimated to earn the People’s Republic of China over $1bn (~€0.91) per annum following the China Tribunal.

It also follows a recent speech delivered to the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in September, where China’s forced organ harvesting crimes were announced for the first time in the Council’s history.

The China Tribunal is an independent people’s tribunal chaired by Sir Geoffrey Nice QC which deemed that China’s ‘wicked’ organ harvesting practices amount to ‘Crimes Against Humanity.’ Authors of the new report testified before the China Tribunal at hearings held in April 2019.

The report has concluded that figures disclosed by the Chinese Government conform almost precisely to a mathematical formula, suggesting that official organ registry data has been manufactured and manipulated.

Forced organ harvesting in China

This independent study has cast significant doubt on China’s ‘success,’ that it claims to have a booming, legal voluntary organ donation programme – suggesting the figures are misleading the international medical community and the general public.

Forensic statistical methods were employed to examine deceased organ donation datasets published by the China Organ Transplant Response System (COTRS) and the Red Cross Society of China, from 2010-2018.

While China has ‘reformed’ its organ transplantation system to an extent, this new report suggests that it was in fact a mask for the continued use of non-voluntary donors or donors who are coerced into giving organs.

The report concludes that China is most likely utilising a ‘complex hybrid transplant programme: voluntary donations incentivised by large cash payments, are apparently used alongside non-voluntary donors who are marked down as citizen donors.’

Susie Hughes, Executive Director at the International Coalition to End Transplant Abuse in China (ETAC), said: “This report exposes the lies and deception that mark China’s so-called transplant ‘reforms.’

“The falsification of the China Organ Transplant Response System (COTRS) data appears to be part of an elaborate coverup that disguises the state-run mass murder of innocent people for their organs in China.”

The report, published in BMC Medical Ethics, was authored by leading experts, Dr Jacob Lavee, Professor of Surgery and Director of the Heart Transplantation Unit at the Leviev Heart Center, Sheba Medical Center, Tel Aviv, Matthew Robertson School of Politics & International Relations, Australian National University and Dr Raymond L. Hinde, an Australian PhD in statistics.
