People convicted of organ trafficking in China may get the death penalty under a draft law amendment being reviewed by the top legislature.
The amendment, which was submitted on Wednesday to the National People's Congress (NPC) Standing Committee for a third reading, stipulates that criminals convicted of 'forced organ removal, forced organ donation or organ removal from juveniles' could face punishment for homicide which carries a sentence of either death, life imprisonment or a fixed-term imprisonment of not less than 10 years
