The Leading Authority in Organ Transplantation Asserted Live Organ Harvesting from Falun Gong Practitioners is Real
Spain has been leading the way in organ transplant
technology in Europe and in the world.
Especially over the last 20 years, the organ donation rate
in Spain has been the highest among all countries.
Spain has built up a successful organ donation mechanism
known as the"Spanish model."
Many countries are learning from Spanish experience.
Recently, NTDTV reporters interviewed Nephrologist
Dr. Rafi Matt Sands, the founder of the Spanish national transplantation organization.
As a leading authority, Dr. Sands asserted that the Chinese
Communist Party’s live organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners is real.
Different from the non-governmental organ donation
organizations in other countries, the organ donation
organization in Spain is a governmental structure.
It was initially built in 1989 and the donation rate has
increased from 14 out of a million people to 35 out of a million people by 2011.
Dr. Sands:"the so-called Spanish model of organ donation
is just a management system, nothing else."
Dr. Sands: “What I observed in my hospital is that the final
decision of the family to donate or not donate the organ
was very dependent upon the person who gave
the interview, the nephrologist who worked that day who
was on call in the hospital.
So I decided that it was not so dependent on the family;
it was more dependent on the medical doctor."
Based upon this strategy, less than three years after
the organ transplantation organization was founded,
Spain became the country with the highest organ donation
Not only is Spain in a leading position with organ donation
and transplantation, but it’s also on the front line of cracking
down on illegal organ deals.
In 2010, Spain has set definite provisions in its legislation
regarding illegal organ transplantation.
If Spanish citizens know that the source of organs is illegal,
they are prohibited from receiving the transplant.
Even the promotion of illegal organ transplantation
is against the criminal law.
Dr. Sands: “I believe one of them is China.
A hospital patient paid a great amount of money
to receive a liver, the origin of which we are not sure
of but, practically, the most likely possibility is the liver
is from an executed prisoner, and so far as we understand,
for China this is a legal action, but for us it is not acceptable.
And that is the reason why we established the new law
which complimented what we had before."
Regarding the allegation of the CCP’s harvesting of Falun
Gong practitioners’ organs for profit, Dr. Sands, as an organ
transplantation expert, asserted that it’s real.
Dr. Sands:"All these things about Falun Gong seem
to have been perfectly proven.
And there are many international societies,
like the Transplantation Society and others which have
found proof about these."
Dr. Sands:"Part of the Chinese government has recognized
that this is true. No discussion about it.
And that is one of the reasons that all these things
should be avoided in the future. 100%."
A Spanish citizen who went to China for an organ
transplantation in 2008 instigated other people
to go to China for organ transplantation in the media
was prosecuted and is subject to being brought to justice.
Dr. Sands proudly said that Spain has set up a good example
in prohibiting illegal organ deals.
He hopes that more and more countries can follow suit.
He also said that we should have zero tolerance
for notorious crimes like live organ harvesting.
