China Police Chief Wang Lijun Told U.S. Officials of Organ Harvest, Source Says

Posted by chinaview on June 26, 2012

Former police chief and deputy mayor of Chongqing Wang Lijun made a surprising and hasty visit to the U.S. consulate in Chengdu in February, making international headlines. What Wang said to U.S. consulate officials, however, remained mostly confidential.

Sources told Bill Gertz, a national security reporter, that Wang handed U.S. officials key information about Bo Xilai and Zhou Yongkang’s planned coup against Xi Jinping, the heir apparent of the Chinese Communist Party. It was also rumored that Wang attempted to defect and sought protection from U.S. officials.

A well-placed source has now told The Epoch Times that Wang gave U.S. officials confidential documents containing critical information about top communist officials’ involvement in the persecution of Falun Gong. The source said Wang provided details about organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners in China’s network of military hospitals, prisons, mental hospitals, and labor camps.
The State Department did not respond to telephone and email requests for comment.

In July 2006, former Canadian Secretary of State (Asia-Pacific) David Kilgour and human rights lawyer David Matas released a report summarizing the findings of their investigation into organ harvesting allegations from Falun Gong practitioners imprisoned in China. Their report cited as evidence telephone interviews with hospital staff in China admitting that Falun Gong practitioners were being killed and their organs sold.

In May of this year, the U.S. Department of State released the 2011 Country Report on Human Rights Practices, which included for the first time reference to allegations of organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners and Uighurs in China. The report noted reports that Falun Gong practitioners were “targeted for arbitrary arrest, detention, and harassment.”

In February, chairman of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs Ileana Ros-Lehtinen wrote a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asking for an explanation about how U.S. officials dealt with Wang after he arrived at the U.S. consulate in Chengdu.

In April, the State Department held a private briefing for members of the Committee on Foreign Affairs regarding the Wang Lijun incident. Details of the briefing were not provided to media.

When Chongqing’s former top cop, Wang Lijun, fled for his life to the U.S. Consulate in Chengdu on Feb. 6, he set in motion a political storm that has not subsided. The battle behind the scenes turns on what stance officials take toward the persecution of Falun Gong. The faction with bloody hands—the officials former CCP head Jiang Zemin promoted in order to carry out the persecution—is seeking to avoid accountability for their crimes and to continue the campaign. Other officials are refusing any longer to participate in the persecution. Events present a clear choice to the officials and citizens of China, as well as people around the world: either support or oppose the persecution of Falun Gong. History will record the choice each person makes.
