We have just received a communication from an official within the Scottish Government in response to our concerns regarding Edinburgh College Of Surgeon’s honoring of Professor Huang Jiefu. An individual closely linked with medical atrocities in China, the forced extraction of human organs from executed political prisoners and others.
The contents were evasive and displayed a worrying credulity towards Chinese reports that such abuses were to be stopped from January 2015, an assertion issued by the very same Professor Huang! No such moderation has taken place, a fact investigated and reported upon by the New York Times. The newspaper noted that under the new regime of supposedly not using organs from executed political or criminal prisoners, China’s organ supply showed no decrease!
..”organs from prisoners, including those on death row, can still be used for transplants in China, with the full backing of policy makers, according to Chinese news reports, as well as doctors and medical researchers in China and abroad. “They just reclassified prisoners as citizens,” said Huige Li, a Chinese-born doctor at the University of Mainz in Germany.
