美伊换囚华裔王夕越Wang Xiyue获释妻子曲桦王夕越事件出来了吗

据香港01新闻网报,伊朗与美国互换囚犯,伊朗官员7日表示,已经释放美籍华裔学者王夕越(Wang Xiyue,音译)。王夕越自2016年起遭囚禁,被控以间谍和勾结等罪名,她的妻子瞿华(Qu Hua,音译)证实丈夫重获自由,形容「我们的家庭再次完整了」。

瞿华感激各界帮忙,开心称「我们很感谢每一个令此事发生的人」。美国白宫之后证实,王夕越已获释放,目前正返回美国途中。

美国籍的王夕越出生于北京,曾先后在大陆、印度和美国的高等学校留学,2008年在哈佛大学取得研究生学位,2013年到普林斯顿大学历史系攻读博士,2014年,其妻儿也到美国与他团聚。

到了2016年,王夕越获得伊朗签证及伊朗外交部书面批准前往该国,为完成有关欧亚史的博士论文开展学术研究并进修波斯语,但同年8月,他遭到逮捕,指控他以研究员的身份作掩护,在伊朗国内通过秘密联络人网络,为英美情报机构工作,经过闭门审判后,被判处10年有期徒刑。

他的妻子瞿华一直四处奔走,希望拯救丈夫,联合国多名人权专家2019年5月公开呼吁伊朗放人。

美伊双方的换囚行动在瑞士进行。美国释放了一名伊朗籍的囚犯苏莱马尼(Massoud Soleimani)。他是一名生物学家,2018年10月赴美期间被捕,遭指控试图「偷运生长荷尔蒙」。

这是一件

令人震惊,

令人绝望,

我们在呐喊!

我们在声援!

亲爱的普林斯顿大学华人学生、学者、老师们,家长们,和朋友们:

我们作为普林斯顿王夕越华人救援小组的几位普林斯顿大学华人教授发出这封公开信,倡议大家团结起来,全力支持王夕越先生和他的家属。

王夕越是普林斯顿大学历史系四年级研究生。他在伊朗从事 19 世纪末至 20 世纪初的欧亚历史研究期间,被伊朗司法部门以间谍罪和与伊朗敌国合作罪指控,不公正地判处十年徒刑,并在最近被驳回上诉。

王夕越只是一位无辜的学生。是王夕越的美国国籍和普林斯顿大学的学者身份使他成了美伊关系恶化的又一个政治斗争的牺牲品。王夕越的妻子曲桦女士和他们四岁的儿子都是中国公民。他们自王夕越被无辜地逮捕后,已经一年半未见到王夕越。现在整个家庭都陷入了绝望和痛苦的状态。

自今年七月份伊朗司法机关宣布这一案件后,普林斯顿及普林斯顿大学的华人团体立即对王夕越及其家属表示了强烈支持。普林斯顿中国学者,学生,家长,华人团体和友人也自发地成立了一个王夕越救援小组。一些美籍华人协会,例如美籍华人联合会(UCA)和百人会,也立即以多种方式表达了对王夕越的关切和支持。

同时,我们也认识到也有部分华人由于王夕越事件的复杂性,敏感性,和信息渠道的不足, 心理还有一些疑问。比如为什么普林斯顿大学没有及时公开王夕越的被捕情况,王夕越此 前作为红十字会在阿富汗的普什图语翻译是什么身份?他为何作为学生就拥有美国公民身 份?去伊朗是不是受美国安全部门和学校指使等等。因此,他们对王夕越和他的家属的支 持暂时还持一些保留和观望的态度。这些疑问都很正常,这种谨慎的态度完全可以理解。

王夕越是一位具有语言天赋并对欧亚历史研究具有强烈兴趣的博士研究生。也正是出于对欧亚研究的兴趣和学术热情,他从校内申请了研究课题资助,冒险前往伊朗,以获取他博士论文所需的当地的第一手资料。在前往伊朗之前,他向伊朗政府以及计划访问的图书馆和档案馆都发出了公函,向他们解释了自己的研究计划,并获得了查阅伊朗图书馆和档案馆中馆藏文件的必要批准。

不幸的事件发生后,普林斯顿大学及其家属之所以没有及时对此案的公开,是因为学校接受来学校的咨询人员的建议,担心过早的对媒体公开此案,可能会妨碍他的释放。

王夕越生长在中国北京。他在 20 岁时随母亲移民到美国,并于 2001年获得美国绿卡。他之后于 2006 年在华盛顿大学取得南亚研究的学士学位,并在 2008年获得了哈佛大学俄罗斯和欧亚研究专业的硕士学位。

从哈佛大学毕业后,在 2008 年到2009 年期间,王夕越作为普林斯顿在亚洲(Princeton in Asia) 的研究员,在奥睿律师事务所(Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP)香港办公室工作。2010 年,他希望利用自己的语言能力帮助被战争摧残的阿富汗受伤平民,所以他选择加入了国际红十字委员会,并在坎大哈(Kandahar)的一家中国援建医院担任普什图语翻译员。他在阿富汗的服务挽救了很多人的生命。

王夕越自小就立志成为研究欧亚历史的历史学家。2013 年,他如愿被普林斯顿大学历史系录取为博士生,并在知名历史学家 Stephen Kotkin 教授指导下从事欧亚历史的研究。为了更好的完成自己的论文, 王夕越从驻华盛顿的伊朗签证机构

( Iranian Interest Section)

申请了赴伊朗签证,并在取得伊朗方面同意他的研究方案后前往伊朗德黑兰的图书馆和档案馆进行论文研究。

不幸的是,伊朗对王夕越的毫无根据的指控,拘禁,和判刑,严重影响了他的人生和学术生涯。在被拘禁的一年多里, 他的身体和精神状况都在急剧下降, 急需救助。

王夕越和他的家庭目前处于一个非常艰难的时期,我们呼吁华人团体团结起来,支持普林 斯顿大学对于救援释放王夕越所做的努力。我们由衷的感谢您对于王夕越及其家属的支持。

Dear Princeton Chinese Students, Scholars, Faculty, Parents, and Friends:

On behalf of the Princeton Free Xiyue Wang Volunteer Group, we, as Chinese American professors at Princeton University, are writing this open letter to call for your unity and full support to Mr. Xiyue Wang and his family.

Mr. Xiyue Wang, a 4th year graduate student in the History Department of Princeton University was unjustly sentenced to 10 years imprisonment by the Iranian judiciary department and his appeal was recently denied. He was charged of espionage and collaboration with a hostile government against the Iranian state, while he was conducting archival research for his dissertation in relation to the late 19th and early 20th century Eurasian history. Xiyue, an innocent student, has become another political victim of the deteriorating US-Iran relation just because he is a US citizen and a Princeton student. Xiyue’s wife, Mrs Hua Qu, and their 4 year old son, both are Chinese citizens, have not seen Xiyue for one year and a half since his detainment and the family is in a desperate situation.

After Xiyue’s case was made public by Iranian judiciary in July of this year, many Chinese communities at Princeton have expressed their strong support to Xiyue and his family. A Free Xiyue Wang support group was immediately formed by volunteers of Princeton Chinese scholars, students, parents, friends, and Chinese communities. Several Chinese American associations such as the United Chinese Americans (UCA) and the Committee of 100 also immediately expressed their concern and support in many different ways.

At the same time, it has also drawn to our attention that some members in our Chinese community still reserve their support because they may have some additional questions about this complex and sensitive case. Such questions include: Why didn’t Princeton University timely release Xiyue’s detention to the media and the public? What was Xiyue’s previous employment by the International Committee of the Red Cross as a Pushto interpreter? How did he obtain a US citizenship when he was still a student? Was his visit to Iran instructed by the US security department and Princeton University? These questions represent reasonably prudent response to this case and is fully understandable.

Xiyue is a Ph.D. student who has linguistic talents and strong interests in Eurasian history. He took the risk to visit Iran solely driven by his academic passion in Eurasian studies and the need to read first hand local archives for his dissertation. Before traveling to Iran, he sent letters explaining his research plan to the Iranian government and had received approval necessary to carry out his archival research at libraries and archives in Tehran. Princeton University and Xiyue’s family kept the case confidential on the recommendation of knowledgeable advisers of the University with the

concern that publicity would likely impede efforts to secure Xiyue’s release. Xiyue was born and raised in Beijing, China. He immigrated to the US with his mother when he was 20 years old. He obtained his green card in 2001. Then, he received a bachelor’s degree in South Asian studies from the University of Washington in 2006, and a master degree in Russian and Eurasia studies at Harvard University in 2008. After graduated from Harvard, he worked as a Princeton in Asia fellow between 2008 and 2009 at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, a law firm in Hong Kong. In 2010, motivated by his passion to use his language skill to help the wounded in Afghanistan, a war torn country, he joined the International Committee of Red Cross and worked for the organization as a Pushto interpreter at a Chinese-funded hospital in Kandahar. His service in Afghanistan saved a lot of lives.

Xiyue’s dream, since young age, is to become a historian in Eurasian studies. In 2013, he applied for and was accepted by the PhD program of History Department at Princeton University and studied Eurasian history under the guidance of Prof. Stephen Kotkin, a world-renowned historian. To complete an excellent thesis with great distinction, Xiyue applied for a visa from the Iranian Interest Section in Washington, D.C., and went to the libraries and archives in Tehran, Iran for his dissertation thesis research, with necessary approval of his research plan by the relevant Iranian authority. Unfortunately, the arbitrary detention of Xiyue and groundless accusations against him by the Iranian state are serious blow to his personal life and academic career. Since the detention from more than a year ago, his physical and mental health have been deteriorating very fast. An urgent help is needed.

At this difficult time of Xiyue Wang, we would like to call for our Chinese community to unite and support Princeton University’s efforts to secure a speedy release of Xiyue. Your kind support to Mr. Xiyue Wang’s freedom and his family’s well-being is greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Princeton Free Xiyue Wang Chinese Volunteer Group (FreeXiyueWang.org)
