China's organ transplant business includes forcefully harvested organs from prisoners.

An independent tribunal in London concluded that China has killed prisoners to provide organ transplants.

An independent tribunal in London concluded that China has killed prisoners to provide organ transplants. In 2019, an independent international tribunal in London confirmed that forced organ harvesting had taken place in China. It found that since 1999, followers of Falun Gong and Uyghurs had been killed for their organs.

The tribunal noted that short waiting times for organ transplants suggested that the execution of prisoners for their organs was timed.

According to Lancet, the Chinese Government has admitted that the organs were taken from executed prisoners on multiple occasions. Furthermore, an ethical system for recovering organs from those who die in hospitals while on life support has not been developed.

The United Nations report also said that there is credible information that detainees from ethnic, linguistic, or religious minorities may be forcibly subjected to blood tests and organ examinations such as ultrasound and x-rays without their informed consent.

As such, we mark the claim as true.
