New York: A global group fighting to stop transplant abuse have raised serious allegations against China at the United Nations. The activists have accused China of harvesting human organs from the minority communities in the country. They raised this issue during a United Nations Human Rights Council meeting earlier last week.
The charge was brought by the China Tribunal, a global organization initiated by the International Coalition to End Transplant Abuse in China.
The lawyer for the Tribunal, Hamid Sabi, told the UN that China was taking kidneys, lungs and skin from minority groups, including Uighur Muslims and members of Falgun Gong religious group.
He had said that forced organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience, including the religious minorities of Falgun Gong and Uighurs, has been committed for years throughout China on a significant scale.
Sabi said that there were hundreds of thousands of victims and is one of the worst mass atrocities of the century.
The China Tribunal said in July that the number of prisoners were substantial after an order of the government.
China as usual has denied to the allegations about forced organ harvesting and said that it has stopped using the organs of executed prisoners in 2015.
