Abstract
The Amendment to Criminal Law (VIII) issued in 2011 regulates the crime of human organ transplantation, which criminalizes independently the behavior of organizing the sales of human organs. Although this provision makes up for the vacancy in the field of criminal law for organ transplantation in China, there are still some omissions. From the perspective of criminal law regulation of human organ transplantation, this paper strives to provide a reference for how to regulate the criminal liabilities of illegal removal of corpse organs, the crime of human organs trafficking, the crime of smuggling human organs, and the crime of removing organs of mental patients by applying the methods of analyzing articles of law and practical cases. In order to improve the criminal law legislation of human organ transplantation in China, this paper believes that a more detailed and comprehensive legislative proposal must be put forward so as to solve the existing problems of human organ transplantation crimes, and related judicial interpretation and corresponding criminal liabilities shall be issued to cope with the diverse crimes of human organ transplantation.
