(NewsTarget) A Chinese military surgeon allegedly had eight Chinese citizens killed to supply a single foreign patient with a new kidney.

Former Canadian Secretary of State for Asia-Pacific David Kilgour indicated that this had happened while speaking as a special guest at the Asian Human Rights Week forum in Warsaw on November 14.

Kilgour interviewed a 35 year-old man while performing some research in Asia who received a kidney transplant at Shanghai No. 1 People's Hospital in 2003. The man -- whose name and nationality were withheld -- told Kilgour that his surgeon was Dr. Tan Jianming -- who is Secretary General of the Chinese Research Society of Dialysis and Transplantation. In addition to Dr. Tan's high-profile medical affiliation, he also holds top posts in a number of Chinese military and civilian hospitals.

Kilgour said, "The incredible thing is that the doctor would…go down the names on sheets of paper looking for blood types and tissue types and so on, and he [the patient] would point at names on the list. The doctor would then go away and come back with organs."

The man whom Kilgour spoke to apparently suffered from an antibody condition that made it difficult to find a suitable kidney. However, four separate kidneys were brought to him and tested over an eight-day period according to Kilgour. When none of those eight kidneys worked, Dr. Tan tried another four kidneys three months later, and finally found a fit when he used the eighth kidney.

The patient was told by Dr. Tan that the organs he had tried all came from executed Chinese prisoners -- and that at least some of the organs had been harvested secretly, against the donors' will. Kilgour went on to say that "I am certain that at least some of these were Falun Gong practitioners who never went near a court, who were never convicted of anything."

Kilgour believes, that apart from death row prisoners, Falun Gong prison detainees in China are particularly targeted for live organ harvesting as opposed to other groups that the Chinese Communist regime labels as "dissidents" or "enemies of state."
