VOC Research Supports Verdict on Chinese Communist Crimes

Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation (VOC) China Studies Research Fellow Matthew Robertson appeared as an expert witness before the Independent Tribunal into Forced Organ Harvesting from Prisoners of Conscience in China, held in London on December 8-10.

Robertson briefed the seven-member panel — chaired by Sir Geoffrey Nice, a former judge who helped prosecute Slobodan Milošević for war crimes in Yugoslavia — on his research into evidence that China’s hospital and prison system have collaborated to harvest organs from political prisoners.

The tribunal issued a unanimous interim judgment that this atrocity has been taking place “beyond any reasonable doubt” for a “substantial period of time” on a “very substantial” scale.
