New Zealand Labor Party lawmakers break rank and call on Beijing for organ removal

New Zealand Labor Party lawmaker Louisa Wall opposes the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for the horrifying allegations of industrial-level organ removal for prisoners of conscience.

In his remarks, MP broke the position of her party, Jacinda Ardern, with the New Zealand Labor Party government.

“Forced organ removal is being done to serve the global market where people want the heart, lungs, eyes and skin.” Wall told RNZ..

“Both Uighurs and Falun Gong are designated prisoners of conscience,” she said. “We know they are slaves, and we know they are used to remove organs.”

Wall is a member of the Inter-Parliamentary Policy Alliance (IPAC), which oversees the activities of the Chinese Communist Party.

She referred to a 600-page report produced by an independent Chinese court chaired by barrister Sir Jeffrey Nice QC.

The referee was established to investigate allegations of ongoing organ removal by the CCP. Eventually, it turned out that this practice continued for “a considerable amount of time.”

“Forced organ removal has been carried out on a considerable scale throughout China for many years, and Falun Gong practitioners were one of the organ supplies and probably the main source.” Statement from Chinese court Please note that Uighur persecution and medical examination are recent developments.

“Forced organ removal continues to this day as courts do not have evidence that important infrastructure related to China’s transplant industry has been dismantled and there is not enough explanation for the source of readily available organs. I conclude that there is. “

Wall called on the New Zealand government to adopt slavery law to prevent domestic imports of materials produced by slave labor.

“What the UK and Canada have done is that there is Modern Slavery Act and companies using those raw materials want to make sure that the production of those raw materials actually complies with Modern Slavery Act. I like the mechanism, “she said.

New Zealand opposition leader Judith Collins cast her support behind Wall’s comments.

“I really make this clear. The Kuomintang does not support people’s organ removal. We do not support forced labor, and essentially camps on this. We do not. I’m very worried about that, “Collins told reporters.

Collins pointed out that the government had “pretty good information” on this issue and asked her to share it.

“I think this is a very important issue. Human rights and freedom of speech are very important to us. We can expect the government to ask some questions about this,” she said. Told.

When asked about Wall’s comments, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said Wall was speaking as a member of the IPAC, not the government.

“We speak as ministers and on behalf of the government. It does not restrict members who are part of the IPAC from wearing their hats.” She said..

Ardan also said the New Zealand government is working on modern slavery legislation and that New Zealand has an arrangement only with Australia when it comes to organ transplants.

“We, as the government, have raised the issue of organ transplantation with China and have called for the latest information on this issue and policy reforms for consent and transparency, so this is what we raise at that level. I did, “she added.

The New Zealand government is steadily realigning its attitude towards China, quietly implementing policies and legislation to combat foreign interference from Beijing.
