Chinese surgeons removed the hearts of death-row prisoners before they were confirmed to be dead, according to an Australian study of organ transplants. Researchers at the Australian National University (ANU) examined thousands of Chinese medical papers and concluded that surgeons killed some prisoners during surgery, including some “prisoners of conscience” who had not been certified to be brain-dead. The study’s authors say their computer modelling disproves Chinese claims that all prisoners were brain-dead before their organs were “harvested”. It also cast doubt on Chinese claims in 2015 that it had stopped harvesting the organs of executed prisoners. The study, published in the American Journal of Transplantation, suggests that some prisoners were still alive — but not necessarily conscious — on the operating table.
