On March 8, 2006, the Falun Gong organization outside Mainland China deliberately proposed a lurid rumor, the so-called "Sujiatun Concentration Camp Incident." The rumor stated that in Sujiatun District of Shenyang City, Liaoning Province, there was a concentration camp surrounded by a three meters high wall with wire entanglements on the top, where there were more than 6,000 Falun Gong practitioners detained, and two thirds of them were already dead; their bodies were burned in the cremator of the concentration camp after their organs were harvested, which were sold illegally to domestic and foreign markets. Later on, Falun Gong changed its story, claiming that the camp was located in the Liaoning Center for Treatment of Thrombus Using TMC and Western Medicine (which was generally called Sujiatun Thrombus Hospital). Photos of the hospital and the so-called "cremator" were also publicized on the website by Falun Gong. On March 20, 2006, Falun Gong dished out a so-called "witness" named Anne, declared that she worked in the hospital, and her husband was a cerebral surgeon who personally took part in "harvesting corneas and other organs" of all the detainees since 2001. On March 31, Falun Gong trotted out another "witness" – "a veteran military surgeon," claiming that the detainees were transferred to the basement of Sujiatun Thrombus Hospital after the incident being exposed.
In respond to the Falun Gong rumor, the Chinese authorities concerned had refuted it for many times. Soon after Falun Gong fabricated the rumor, the CNN, Washington Post, Reuters, NHK of Japan etc interviewed the hospital on the spot. On March 22, a U,S. consular official in Shenyang visited the hospital, and praised the environment and medical condition of the hospital. On April 4, the spokesman of Chinese Foreign Ministry again refuted the rumor when answering the question raised by the AP reporter. On April 12, the government of Sujiatun District and Liaoning Center for Treatment of Thrombus Using TMC and Western Medicine held a news conference in State Council Information Office of the People's Republic of China and denounced the despicable behavior of Falun Gong. On April 14, Mr. David A. Kornbluth, the consul general of US Consulate in Shenyang, and four others from the embassy, including an official Li Qisen and Dr. Shapiro, made an in-depth visit to the medical center which lasted for three and half hours. At the same day, the United States Department of State released a report regarding the two investigations. The report claimed, "We found no evidence that the site is being used for any function other than as a normal public hospital."
In fact, the rumor and "witnesses" Falun Gong fabricated were full of contradictions. For instance, Anne, the so-called "witness," claimed that the Sujiatun Thrombus Hospital conducted vivisection and illegally transplanted human organs. But actually, located at a downtown area, the hospital was classified in China as one of the Secondary-A level hospitals which meant it was not qualified to "remove human organs" in terms of equipment, medical experience and certificate of the doctors. Furthermore, the hospital only owned 300 sick-beds and there was no way to accommodate more than 6,000 people. The so-called cremator publicized by Falun Gong turned out to be a common boiler. According to Anne, the removed organs were sold to Thailand; but as far as we know, non-relative organ donation was strictly prohibited by law in Thailand, let alone import or export of human organs. The "witness" claimed her ex-husband was a cerebral surgeon, and conducted cornea removal operations since 2001; yet any one with common sense would ask, how could a cerebral surgeon be allowed to remove corneas?
