He was subsequently arrested many times and he eventually lost his business and his family.

When Mr. Xu was imprisoned in 2000 at the Huanxiling Forced Labor Camp in Jilin City, Jilin Province, he was injected with unknown drugs. As a result, his teeth were damaged and he had difficulty eating.

Mr. Xu received a heavy prison sentence in 2002, and was imprisoned in the Jilin Prison,where he was subjected to countless tortures. He was finally released in 2008 because he was paralyzed from the abuse.

Mr. Xu was taken to the Yili Garden Senior Center in Yishan Road, Jilin City, because he had lost both his business and family during the persecution. He was under police surveillance. Officers at the Gaoxin District Police Station did not allow practitioners to visit him. His health continued to deteriorate and Mr. Xu passed away on January 29, 2010.
