China: Falun Gong

Question for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office

UIN HL15238, tabled on 22 April 2021

To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the report by the China Tribunal Judgment, published on 17 June 2019, on the government of China’s organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners; and what action they intend to take regarding the government of China’s treatment of Falun Gong practitioners.

We remain concerned by all restrictions placed on freedom of religion or belief in China, including on practitioners of Falun Gong. We continue to monitor the issue of alleged organ harvesting closely and consider carefully all evidence presented to us. As we have previously stated, if the allegations of systematic, state sponsored organ harvesting are true they would constitute very grave violations of human rights.
