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
Previously, criminals convicted of forced organ removal were sentenced
on a charge of illegal business operation, since there is no specific
offense covering the act in the criminal law. If this latest draft amendment to the criminal law is passed, the law will come into force starting from May 1st.
