To: Mr. David Matas and Mr. David Kilgour
The Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of the Falun Gong in China (CIPFG), a non-governmental organization registered in Washington, D.C., U.S.A. with a branch in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, respectfully asks for your assistance in investigating allegations that state institutions and employees of the government of People’s Republic of China have been harvesting organs from live Falun Gong practitioners, killing the practitioners in the process. The Coalition has received evidence to substantiate these allegations, but also is aware that some people are unsure whether or not these allegations are true and that others deny them.
The Coalition understands that you will conduct your investigation independently from the Coalition or any other organization/government. You are free to report your findings or come to any conclusion based on the evidence collected.
The Coalition will pay for all your expenses upon presentation of receipts. We understand that you will not charge a fee for your work.
Your working methods are entirely of your own choosing. We understand that you will provide us with your report, at the latest, by June 30, 2006.
Thank you for agreeing to undertake this important task.

John Jaw, Ph.D.
