Well yes it could. But Occam's Razor man. . .
Think well on this.
China has been Nazi like ever since Mao Tse Tung. (Mao Zedong I mean). Now I am unaware "how" improved Chinese government's behaviour has been in the past decades since Mao BUT, look at some of this below.
Too much secrecy, lies and the admission of lies, in addition to this:
A Malaysian man who underwent a kidney transplant in a hospital in Guangzhou told the International Herald Tribune:, “They just tell you it was a convict. They don’t tell you what he did.” But often they were “young men” who commit “serious,” “violent” crimes.
In addition, if you preach anything against the Government, your Church must be hidden from plain sight. Whether Falun Gong or Christian, or perhaps Tibetans . . . You are still Human.
