What Do His Hand Gestures Mean?

 

Chen made this hand gesture 6 times during his confession which was aired by China's state media, CCTV, before his trial.

Chen Yongzhou, a journalist for the Guangdong-based New Express newspaper was arrested after he published a report about financial irregularities at a construction-equipment company called Zoomlion.

Chen's arrest sparked a huge outcry from Chinese people and also from the newspaper he was working for. The newspaper made a big effort to pressure the communist regime to release Chen, but a few days later, the chief of New Express was removed from his position.

The communist regime quickly arranged a TV "show" that showed Chen Yongzhou 'confessing' to accepting bribes, but most Chinese bloggers thought the 'confession' was the result of torture.

Chinese bloggers also questioned the following from the CCTV program:

1, Why did Chen make this hand gesture 6 times during his confession?

2, Why did Chen keep his eyes closed at all times during his confession?

3, There are 2 areas of bruising on his neck, are they the result of beating and torture ?

4, Why did CCTV broadcast Chen Yongzhou's confession before any trial?

5, Who had bribed him and why was that person not charged?

6, Why did they shave Chen's hair?

A Form of Genocide Cloaked in Modern Medical Scrubs PDF Print E-mail
Global Stage
China Uncensored   


The Conservative Party Human Rights Commission (CPHRC)
has released a report that calls on the British government to publically condemn the continuing practice of forced organ harvesting in China and to seek a United Nations Commission of Inquiry to assess whether this practice could amount to a crime against humanity under international law.

The CPHRC heard that the scale of organ harvesting in China is much higher than previously estimated and that victims are mainly prisoners of conscience, including practitioners of Falun Gong as well as Tibetan Buddhists, Uyghur Muslims and unregistered house church Christians.

The practice is carried out live – the victim typically dies in the process, when a vital organ such as a heart is removed or, in cases involving other organs, if they survive, they are subsequently executed. Therefore the testimonial evidence is drawn only from witnesses, since by definition there are no ‘survivors’.

The inquiry acknowledged the evidence detailed in Bloody Harvest/The Slaughter: An Update, by former Canadian Member of Parliament David Kilgour, human rights lawyer David Matas, and researcher Ethan Gutmann.

Recommendations:



The Conservative Party Human Rights Commission urges Her Majesty’s Government to undertake the following steps:

1. To publicly condemn the continuing practice of forced organ harvesting and urge the Government of the People’s Republic of China to immediately end this practice;

2. To work with other countries to seek a UN Commission of Inquiry to investigate the practice of forced organ harvesting in China or to conduct an inquiry through other recognised international mechanisms, and to assess whether this practice could amount to a crime against humanity under international law;

3. To research, document and release statistics on the numbers of United Kingdom citizens travelling to China for organ transplants;  

4. To introduce legislation addressing the issues of organ harvesting, similar to legislation passed in various forms in several other countries including Israel, Belgium, Taiwan, Canada, Australia and the United States, and in particular to prohibit British citizens from travelling to China for the purpose of receiving organ transplants (so called ‘organ tourism’) until the practice of forced organ harvesting ends;

5. To introduce a travel ban prohibiting medical personnel and government officials engaged in the practice of forced organ harvesting from travelling to the United Kingdom;  
6. To urge the Transplantation Society to take appropriate action including banning participants from China who have directly engaged in organ harvesting; 7. To give urgent consideration to other measures it could take to hold the government of the People’s Republic of China to account for this practice and demand an end to forced organ harvesting.

7. To give urgent consideration to other measures it could take to hold the government of the People’s Republic of China to account for this practice and demand an end to forced organ harvesting.
