China offers executed inmates' organs

Kidneys, livers and other organs taken from executed inmates in China are being offered for sale and transplant at military hospitals.

Earlier this month, the British health magazine Hospital Doctor broke the news, and The Telegraph then sent a reporter posing as an interested client to the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou, near Hong Kong.

There, he met with Dr. Na Ning of the Guangzhou Air Force Military Hospital.

"There is no need to bring in lawyers or consultants," Na told. "We should do the agreement on trust."

China's Health Ministry banned its own hospitals from taking part in organ transplants from prisoners after an international outcry over the practice in the 1990s, but military hospitals are independent of the Health Ministry.

Under the deal offered, British and other Western patients would be charged $40,000 for a kidney transplant. Asians pay half the Western price, but Na said Western patients get "VIP" treatment and are sure to get the "best quality" organs, UPI reports.

V.Y.
