[David Matas, Former Canadian MP]:

“We’re hoping through this book tour, we can get this message out to the people of Taiwan, about the abuse that’s happening, and what can be done about it.”

前加拿大國會議員大衛麥塔斯說:

「我們希望透過此書巡迴展,傳達信息給台灣人民,有關那兒正在發生的事情,及我們能對此做些什麼。」

On Tuesday, Matas and Kilgour joined Taiwan’s lawmakers in the Legislative Yuan to discuss their findings. They exposed indirect evidence of Falun Gong practitioners being targeted for forced organ harvesting.

週二,麥塔斯和喬高加入台灣立委行列,在立法院討論他們的發現。他們揭發法輪功學員成為被強摘器官對象的間接證據。

[David Kilgour, Former Canadian MP]:

“Doctors would come into the camps, they would look in their eyes, they would examine their organs with ultrasound and the like, and they were the only people in these camps who were medically examined thoroughly.”

前加拿大國會議員大衛喬高說:

「醫生會進入勞教所,看著他們的眼睛,用超音波和類似的東西檢視他們的器官,他們是勞教所裡唯一的一群,會被徹底地醫學式檢查。」

In 2006 Matas and Kilgour started to investigate allegations that Falun Gong practitioners in China were systematically being killed for their organs. Their organs were then sold for a high price to transplant patients.

麥塔斯和喬高在2006年開始調查,中國法輪功學員因他們的器官被計劃性地殺害指控。之後,他們的器官被高價賣給移植患者。

The allegations pointed to a new aspect of the Chinese regime’s campaign to eradicate the Falun Gong spiritual practice that it started in 1999.

中國政權於1999年開始根絕法輪功運動,這項指控指出對這項運動的一個新面向。

Matas and Kilgour concluded, through their investigations that those crimes were being carried out. Since then, they have been raising awareness about the issue.

麥塔斯和喬高總結說,透過他們的調查,這些罪行確實被執行著。從那時起,他們已提高對這議題的關注。

In Taiwan Kilgour urged health authorities to alert those who may be considering traveling to China for organ transplants.

喬高敦促台灣衛生當局,要警告那些可能考慮前往中國,進行器官移植的人。

[David Kilgour, Former Canadian MP]:

“Could you at least recommend to your Minister that he put up on your Foreign Affairs website that if patients go from Taiwan to China, there’s a very good chance they could be getting a kidney or a liver of a Falun Gong practitioner who’s been convicted of no offence, and simply working as forced labor in a labor camp.”

前加拿大國會議員大衛喬高說:

「您能否至少建議您們的部長,在外交部的網站上放置:如果從台灣到中國的患者,很有可能得到一個腎臟或肝臟,是來自沒有犯法、只是在勞教所被強迫勞動的法輪功學員。」

Matas and Kilgour have been invited to speak at various universities throughout Taiwan during their third trip to the island. In 2010, they were both nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for their investigation into forced organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners.

麥塔斯和喬高第三次訪台期間,已受邀到台灣各大學演講。2010年,他們二人因調查強迫摘取法輪功學員器官,被提名諾貝爾和平獎。
