Japan’s “Post Weekly” recently published an article titled “The CCP’s Baiting Tactics” (The Epoch Times)
TOKYO—Japan often refers to itself as the kingdom of spies, and according to one of the country’s weekly publications the moniker still holds true. Japan’s Post Weekly recently revealed that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has a new bait to bribe Japanese political circles. Using their citizens’ own organs, the CCP, tempts key Japanese officials suffering from long-term disease with the promise of an organ transplant in China. The article explains that while Chinese spies still use money and beautiful women to entice the Japanese politicians, Chinese organs present an entirely new temptation.
Lure of Organ Transplants
According to the Post Weekly report, employees from a Japanese investment enterprise in China witnessed a high ranking CCP official openly offering organ transplant operations at the firm’s executive round table meeting. This official boasted that China could offer a rich supply of healthy, young organs harvested from executed convicts. He said that such an operation could be arranged immediately, with special consideration paid to higher ranking individuals.
While such a proposal may sound enticing if an organ is desperately needed, agreeing to the offer means indebtedness to the Chinese regime.
The report also revealed an incident last summer where a Chinese man visited a councilor’s office in Yuraku, the heart of Japan’s Liberal Democratic Party. The councilor’s secretary was known to have a serious organ disease, yet soon after the visit from this mysterious Chinese individual, the secretary underwent transplant surgery and later recuperated in Tokyo. Many informants say this Chinese man was known to be a go-between for organ transplantation in China. While the councilor was famous for holding a very pro-China stance, as his secretary’s health condition improved, his loyalty to the CCP has continued to grow.
Many claim to have been approached by a Chinese man offering organ transplant surgery. Many Japanese political figures either suffer themselves, or have relatives who endure, serious kidney or liver problems. The promise of organ transplant surgery presents a life saving opportunity for them. Yet for those, like the councilor, who accept this offer, they will be indefinately beholden to CCP demands.
Japanese Officials Pander to Chinese For Organs
Japanese bloggers routinely condemn the work of the CCP, labeling them a terrorist organization that consistently tramples human rights behind a façade of diplomacy. They say that Japanese politicians have become increasingly supportive of the CCP because they covet China’s supply of fresh organs.
These bloggers also mention that Falun Gong practitioners’ organs are certain to be included among China’s vast organ supply. They say that this large collection of harvested organs may also contain specimens that originally belonged to other groups that have historically been a problem for the Chinese Communist Party—such as Tibetans. As the CCP is an organization with a history of utter disregard for life and a strong admiration of violence, this is a case that demands worldwide attention.
The CCP is known to use a variety of tactics to target a man’s desires. For instance, the report found that for individuals who are infatuated with women, the CCP would use beauty to lure them; for individuals with financial problems, the CCP would promise lucrative business opportunities for them in China; and for wealthy, ailing officials, the CCP can offer a rich supply of harvested organs.
Huge Organ Supply, Unknown Source
Recent figures indicate that the number of Japanese patients waiting for an organ transplant is growing steadily—increasing by 1,500 more people each year. Compare this to China, where a large amount of live, fresh organs is always at hand—yet their source is unknown. Disturbingly, the Chinese organ supply outnumbers the quantity of prisoners sentenced to death as revealed by CCP officials.
Attracted to the vast supply with no waiting period, 200 Japanese have undergone organ transplant surgery in China. Working primarily through some 15 brokers of a Sino-Japanese cooperation, close to 40 Chinese hospitals are performing these operations for Japanese patients. Commenting on the price of these procedures, a participating Chinese surgeon revealed that it cost 1,000 million Japanese Yen (about $86,000) to do liver transplant and over 600 million Japanese Yen (about over $50,000) for a kidney transplant.
Matsumoto Iwao, a Japanese Organ Transplant Associate, mentions that China is capitalizing on this disparity in supply between the two countries making every effort to investigate the physical condition of wealthy Japanese officials. As the use of organs from the CCP’s executed prisoners has been condemned by all countries in the world, individuals who receive them do not talk openly about it, and the CCP seizes the opportunity to take advantage of these desperate, and silent, clients.
CCP Spies Excel at Exploiting Small Details
The CCP has been very cunning in collecting intelligence on Japanese officials. A former professor from the Reitaku University explained in a recent report that these Japanese politicians often meet with Chinese embassy officials, journalists and students, but secret agents can be found in these circles as well. These spies pay particular attention to small details that would go unnoticed by other people. Observing the subject’s hobbies, habits, and details like the color of the pills they take after dinner, these Chinese spies even watch for clues on how the subject behaves with women. What may seem to most like useless information proves to be valuable intelligence.
Former Intelligence Minister of the Japanese Public Security Agency said that data collected on a target person is used to set a trap that the victim will never see coming. The CCP has been known to snare Japanese officials in compromising situations that could damage one’s political reputation. Often helpless and ashamed, these Japanese officials are then preyed upon by the Chinese for political gain. Although Japanese officials who do accept CCP enticements are not asked to return the gifts or benefits, neither will they speak out against these tactics. They are often too embarrassed to say anything.
There is substantial evidence that suggests a Japanese consulate official in Shanghai committed suicide due to relations with a woman at a local karaoke bar. The woman was used as bait to blackmail the official into leaking information to the Chinese. Driven into a corner, he was faced with either ruining his reputation or divulging state secrets, so he killed himself. At the same karaoke bar in the summer of 2006, a Japanese Marine was also suspected of leaking intelligence. As early as October of 1997, the late former Japanese Prime, Minister Ryutaro Hashimoto, was scandalized for having been used by a Chinese female spy. Extensive interrogation of him by the Japanese Congress sought more details regarding his relationships with these Chinese women to prevent further infiltration of their leaders.
