Most recent place of detention:
Ms. Shen Jianli was born in 1969. She was a faculty member of the Department of Applied Mathematics at the Nanling Subdivision of Jilin University in Changchun, Jilin Province. Because she persisted in practicing Falun Gong and believing in "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance", she was sent by two heads of the 610 Office at Jilin University, Liu Yuan and Liu Wei, to the Nanling Police Substation. She was later sent to the Jingyuetan Brainwashing Center. Her three-year-old son Shen Jianli was also subjected to brainwashing. The Nanling Police Substation repeatedly threatened to send her son to an orphanage so that they could send Shen Jianli to a forced labor camp. Shen Jianli's husband Zhen Weidong was also later detained at a forced labor camp. Shen Jianli and her child managed to escape. After that, Liu Yuan boasted, "I don't believe that I cannot get her." Shen Jianli was then placed on the police's wanted list.
On March 6, 2002 when her husband Zhen Weidong was put on trial, Shen Jianli was arrested at the entrance of the courthouse. As a result, her child was left alone at the entrance. Shen Jianli was illegally detained at the Third Detention Center of Changchun city, otherwise known as Shuanyang Detention Center, and her husband Zhen Weidong was illegally sentenced to thirteen years of imprisonment. Shen Jianli went on a hunger strike to protest her illegal detainment. It was confirmed by a witness that Shen Jianli never returned after the first interrogation.
At the end of April 2002, a police officer unintentionally released information that Shen Jianli had been killed as a result of persecution. So far, her body has not been found.
