A group of doctors in China has been sentenced to up to three years in prison for harvesting organs from patients.

There were four medical professionals and two others who were given prison sentences of up to 28 months for role in illegal transplants after being caught in 2018.

The Intermediate People’s Court in Bengbu, in Anhui province, said the suspects took organs from 11 patients from southeast China between 2017 and 2018.

The families in Anhui province of the unwilling organ donors were reportedly tricked into signing fake consent forms by three of the doctors who were designated organ procurement officers at their respective hospitals.

A member of the group, Yang Suxun, the previous head of the emergency unit Huaiyuan province individuals’ clinic convinced families of auto accident casualties or patients with extreme cerebrum harm.

Yang then convinced them to consent to give organs and afterward sent the lab test results to his assistants in Nanjing. 

The dead patients were then rushed into a van, disguised as an ambulance, and operated on without the presence of family or staff from the Red Cross Society of China where the former organ procurement chief at Nanjing Drum Tower Hospital, Huang Xinli performed the procedures, with the other conducted by doctor Lu Sen.

Xinli was assisted in his operations by Wang Hailiang, who worked as an organ procurement liaison between 2015 and 2018 while Huang Chaoyang and Ou Yang helped deliver the organs.
