On March 16, Caijing published an interview article titled, “Huang Jiefu: The Fall of Zhou Yongkang Breaks the Chain of Interest on the Use of Executed Prisoners for the Organ Transplantation (Business in China).” The article was based on ifeng.com’s interview of Huang Jiefu, the former Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Deputy Minister for the Ministry of Health. Several other websites either republished the same article or published articles about the same interview.
This was the first time that Huang Jiefu directly tied Zhou Yongkang, the detained former security czar and retired member of the Chinese Communist Party Politburo Standing Committee, to the forced organ harvesting in China. Huang stated directly that Zhou was the key leader who was responsible for the secret organ sources for the transplants in China. Huang indicated in the TV interview that neither the former top leaders Hu Jintao & Wen Jiabao nor the current top leaders Xi Jinping & Li Keqiang have anything to do with this forced organ harvesting business in China. According to an analytical article in Epoch Times on March 17, Huang’s testimony indicates that Xi Jinping will accelerate his attack against the Jiang Zemin faction. Zhou Yongkang was considered an ally of Jiang Zemin, retired General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party. The internal fight within the CCP’s top leadership will center more and more on the core issue of the forced harvesting of organs from healthy Falun Gong practitioners in China. “The last big showdown time draws near.”
