In China, President of Hospital Tied to Organ Harvesting Investigated

By Epoch Times

The president of a hospital in northeastern China’s Jilin Province that has been reported as practicing forced, live organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners has been targeted by the Chinese Communist Party’s disciplinary body.

On Aug. 3 the Central Commission Of Discipline Inspection announced that Wang Guanjun, president of The First Hospital Of Jilin University, member of the Party Standing Committee of Jilin University, vice president of Jilin University, and president of Norman Bethune Health Science Center of Jilin University, was under investigation for “serious violations of discipline and law.”

Besides Wang, at least 12 university leaders have been investigated by Party Central this year, and one third of them are from medical universities, according to the state-run Beijing Youth Daily.

The paper reports these 12 investigations as part of the ongoing anti-corruption campaign sweeping through the CCP, and the investigation of Wang will also likely be treated as part of that campaign.
