China: Prisoners

Question for Foreign and Commonwealth Office

UIN HL2341, tabled on 9 March 2020

To ask Her Majesty's Government what representations they plan to make to the World Health Organisation to review its stance on the the government of China's organ transplant system following the China Tribunal's findings that that government's forced organ harvesting constitutes a crime against humanity.

Answered on

18 March 2020

We are carefully reviewing the allegations in the recently released China Tribunal report. The Government's position remains that, if true, allegations of forced organ harvesting would constitute a gross violation of human rights. We take such allegations seriously and will continue to consult with the World Health Organization and international partners on this matter.
