WASHINGTON—After presiding over an industry of organ transplantation that researchers said has led to a vast death toll of prisoners of conscience, China’s Communist Party has now promised reform. No one has been punished, and no admission of wrongdoing has been made—in fact, the perpetrators are now in charge of the reform process. Question: Do you believe them?
