Ou Xueyuan was a worker at the Harbin Chemical Industry Second Factory in Heilongjiang Province. Firmly believing in "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance," he went to Beijing to clarify the truth and validate Dafa. As a result, in April 2001, he was sentenced to one year in a forced labor camp. In March 2003 he was again sentenced to three years in prison. During the four years of detention at the notorious Changlinzi Labor Camp in Harbin City, he held firm to his belief in Dafa and never yielded to the evil. He suffered various tortures at the hands of Zhao Shuang including electric shock, beatings, and being forced to sit on an iron chair in a fixed position. He was forced to do intense labor overtime, which devastated him both mentally and physically. When he walked out of the labor camp the first time, he was in critical condition with skin disease and infection. When he walked out of the labor camp the second time, his condition was even worse, with wounds all over his body, and he was extremely weak. Due to the torture, his inner organs were severely injured. He passed away on October 17, 2006.
