(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Xie Jin, assistant professor at Chongqing University of Posts and Telecommunications (CUPT) was arrested on July 15, 2008. Around August 11, he was transferred to the Team 2 of Division 7 at the Xishanping Forced Labor Camp in Chongqing. Mr. Xie has been sentenced to forced labor at the Xishanping Camp three times.

Mr. Xie Jin, 46 years old, graduated from Chongqing University with a graduate degree. Since he started practicing Falun Gong in 1996, he has always followed the principles of the practice, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. At school, he is a well known teacher with high moral standards and good teaching qualities. At home, he is a good son, husband, and father.

However, after the persecution of Falun Gong started in 1999, during the past nine years, Mr. Xie has been arrested, detained, and sentenced to forced labor numerous times. He once was tortured to the brink of mental disorder at the labor camp.

In December 1999, Mr. Xie was sentenced to one year of hard labor. After being released, he went to Beijing to appeal for justice, but was arrested and sentenced to three years of hard labor.

On January 1, 2001, several guards from the Training and Consolidation Team hung up practitioners who remained steadfast in their belief in Falun Gong on the iron window frames for three days. Mr. Xie's feet swelled up and he could not move them at all.

On December 31, 2001, Mr. Xie reported the tortures to the investigating officials from Chongqing City's Criminal and Legal Bureau, who went to the Intensive Disciplinary Team of the Xishanping Labor Camp. After the officials left, team leader Tan Wei brutally beat Mr. Xie 50 times with his club. As a result, Mr. Xie had a high fever and it did not go down until the next day. He had to be taken to the emergency room.

In the middle of April 2002, Mr. Xie was once tortured so brutally that he was temporarily mentally disordered.

In early 2004, Mr. Xie was released from the labor camp, but personnel from the university refused to allow him to return to his teaching position and forced him to do chores in the administrative offices. In addition, university personnel took advantage of Mr. Xie's situation by withholding his already low salary. Even in this situation, Mr. Xie still did his best to carry out his tasks without complaint.

Mr. Xie was inhumanly tortured in Xishanping Forced Labor Camp. When he was detained in the labor camp for the second time, his feet were paralyzed due to torture and he was unable to walk. Even though he was released in 2004, his feet are still not fully healed.
