Canadian human rights lawyer David Matas accuses the Chinese regime of continuing a bloody harvest of much-needed human organs, killing up to 10,000 death-row inmates and political prisoners each year. But he accepts the scale of the problem is all but impossible to prove.

”Straight up, the allegation is people are being killed and their bodies cremated, so there is no corpse,” he told The Age yesterday. ”It’s done in a hospital, in a closed setting, so there are no witnesses, just perpetrators and victims. The documentary record is all Chinese internal records, so you’re not going to get any documents.”

// But Mr Matas insists rudimentary evidence of the crimes can be found by those determined enough to search.

He has co-written a series of reports since 2006 investigating the organ harvest and believes the trade is now servicing a growing local market for transplants.
