China insists teenage boy missing for 100 days committed suicide, denies organ harvesting rumors
Hu Xinyu, 15, disappeared more than 100 days ago from an expensive private boarding school in China’s Jiangxi province. His body was found near the school last week.
After months of speculation on social media that he had been kidnapped through organ harvesting, the Chinese government insisted he had committed suicide by hanging.
Hu was last seen leaving the Zhiyuan Middle School dormitory on the evening of October 14. His family contacted the police after he was missing for six hours, and they discovered that most of his belongings, cash and ID cards had been left in his dorm, except for one. pen-shaped digital voice recorder and his school ID card.
A major search and rescue effort was launched for the missing student, as Chinese social media lit up with “Where is Hu Xinyu?” hashtags and speculation about his whereabouts, including growing suspicions that he was kidnapped by an organ harvesting gang.
THE UNITED KINGDOM Time noted that although there was never any real evidence that Hu was abducted, the Chinese people were terrified by their government’s admission in 2014 that it was harvesting organs from executed prisoners.
It’s not exactly hard to believe that the genocidal regime in Beijing would step up the pace of executions for organ harvesting, and the denials of the deceitful Communist government are easily dismissed.
In 2020, rumors organ harvesting from prisoners in the Chinese city of Dalian, including members of the persecuted religion Falun Gong, has fueled calls for the Scottish city of Glasgow to revoke its partnership with the Chinese municipality.
Hu was one of at least ten teenagers to disappear by the end of 2022, after China relaxed rules on organ transplants in September, aiming to become the world leader in transplant procedures. The timing fueled speculation that traffickers were using the looser transplant rules to cash in.
“He just went out for a walk after taking out the trash, and walked along the driveway next to the basketball court, out of sight of the surveillance cameras. There are a lot of missing children now, all little by little. almost the same age as mine, which seems rather bizarre,” said the mother of a missing boy from the now infamous city of Wuhan. Radio Libre Asia (RFA).
“It seems like more children are going missing since the rules were relaxed,” the mother from Wuhan observed, referring to the organ transplant situation. Some Chinese observers believe the actual number of missing youngsters with healthy organs is much higher.
Hu’s body was found not far from the school on Saturday, prompting the public to wonder how it could have gone unnoticed during months of strenuous searches. People also wondered how Hu and so many other young people could just disappear into a paranoid dictatorship with a fetish for high-tech surveillance, including some 540 million cameras trained on its population.
THE Time noted that these questions turned into new rumors of organ trafficking:
Citing unnamed sources, Song Zude, a well-known entertainment commentator, told his social media followers that the boy’s organs were sent to a hospital in Shanghai on the day he disappeared and recovered hundreds of millions. yuan (tens of millions of pounds). .
“If they succeed with little Hu this time, more will happen in the future,” Song said. “So no matter how difficult it may be this time around, let’s work together to stop the bad guys.” Song, known for his baseless claims, was quickly censored.
Police announced at a press conference that Hu was suffering from depression and had hanged himself, an account quickly disputed by Hu’s mother, Li Lianying, who said it looked like Hu’s clothes had been put on. upside down by someone trying to stage his death.
“I want the truth, not fake answers,” she said.
The Chinese state enterprise world times On Thursday, unsurprisingly, she said she was completely satisfied with the police conference, which said that Hu “suffered from mental problems before committing suicide due to poor school performance”.
THE world times had no further questions after police said Hu was found hanging from a tree in the yard of a grain depot near the school, where the corpse had somehow escaped for three months specific research. The police said there were no signs of a struggle and all of Hu’s organs were intact. His voice recorder supposedly contained two recordings that constituted his suicide note.
“Due to shortcomings in our work, it took more than 100 days to find Hu. We will learn from the experience and continue to improve our work,” pledged the province’s deputy director of public security, Hu Mansong.
THE world times decided that the case was closed and the only lesson to be learned was that Chinese students needed more emotional support and mental health care.
Chinese monitoring site bitter winter said the Chinese Communist Party “has been very active in canceling posts and deleting discussions, but it has only itself to blame for escalating crazy rumors.”
“Hu is not the first minor to go missing, but the school is prestigious and his family has made noise claiming that the police are strangely reluctant to investigate and even register the case,” observed Bitter Winter.
