China Tribunal: final judgment & summary report - 2019

Independent Tribunal into Forced Organ Harvesting from Prisoners of Conscience in China
Human rights Ethnic conflict Crimes against humanity Human organ trafficking China

The China Tribunal has contended with a pervasive culture of secrecy, silence and obfuscation by the PRC relating to much material that could have helped in the determination of whether forced organ harvesting has occurred in China. The Tribunal is neither deterred nor disabled from reaching a proper conclusion on the evidence that is available.

China’s reputation as a gross human rights abuser has not had a bearing on the Tribunal in reaching a proper conclusion. The Tribunal has adopted a process for its work that safeguards an even-handed approach to the Peoples Republic of China’s (PRC) interests. The Tribunal has requested contributions from the PRC at every stage.

Commission of Crimes Against Humanity against the Falun Gong and Uyghurs has been proved beyond reasonable doubt by proof of one or more of the following, legally required component acts:

  • murder;
  • extermination;
  • imprisonment or other severe deprivation of physical liberty in violation of fundamental rules of international law;
  • torture;
  • rape or any other form of sexual violence of comparable gravity;
  • persecution on racial, national, ethnic, cultural or religious grounds that are universally recognised as impermissible under international law; and
  • enforced disappearance.

Governments and any who interact in any substantial way with the PRC including:

  • Doctors and medical institutions;
  • Industry, and businesses, most specifically airlines, travel companies, financial services businesses, law firms and pharmaceutical and insurance companies together with individual tourists,
  • Educational establishments;
  • Arts establishments

 ... should now recognise that they are, to the extent revealed above, interacting with a criminal state.
