The Chinese regime has systematically hidden and destroyed evidence and data regarding its harvesting of organs from illicit sources. Our examination of hospitals shows that transplant figures claimed by the government and medical institutions have been manipulated because of the inability to identify organ sources and due to financial interests.1 This was especially true after organ harvesting was first publicly exposed to the world in 2006, since which time transplant data and relevant online information have been either removed or deflated, often by an order of magnitude.
