Former Central Military Commission Vice Chairman Xu Caihou has recently been officially charged with accepting huge bribes. Senior legal experts believe Xu Caihou’s crimes are way beyond corruption. Recently, World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG) released evidence of the PLA General Logistics Department’s involvement in the live organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners. This involvement includes the list of relevant institutes and staff when Xu Caihou was in office.
Xinhua News Agency reported that Military Prosecutor’s Office has concluded the investigation of Xu Caihou’s accepting bribery on the 27th. Xu Caihou was said to have received extra large amounts of bribery and Xu also confessed to these crimes.
Chinese senior legal expert Zhao Yuanming indicated the core of Xu Caihou’s crimes is live organ harvesting and trafficking, being far more complicated than huge corruption.
Zhao Yuanming: Xu Caihou has been a high ranking official in the military for a very long time. He was deeply involved in the army in politics and logistics. He was a behind the scenes director in the Military’s role in live organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners. He was particularly appreciated by Jiang Zemin for that reason.
