(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Liu Lian'e from Jinan City, Shandong Province was a steadfast practitioner of Falun Gong. She was harassed constantly by the Neighborhood Administration and local police, and forced to go through brainwashing. The abuse she suffered severely harmed her both mentally and physically. She died on February 23, 2003.

Ms. Liu Lian'e, 66, was a doctor employed by the Jinan City Switch Factory. She previously had heart, liver, kidney, and stomach problems. After practicing Falun Dafa in 1996, she became healthy. She went to Beijing to validate Falun Dafa at the end of September 2000, and was arrested on Tiananmen Square on October 1, 2000. She was detained for 15 days and then escorted back to Jinan City. She was detained again after her Beijing trip, this time locked up in a brainwashing class located at the Laiwu Steel Factory Jinan City Liaison Office for more than 10 days. She was harassed repeatedly by the Neighborhood Administration and local police after her release home.

At the end of September 2002, police from the Zhenxing Street Substation tricked her into being detained in the substation for about five days. She was then sent to Liuchangshan Brainwashing Class before October 1, 2002. She was tortured both mentally and physically in the class, resulting in all of her old illnesses coming back. Severe symptoms of asthma and heart disease reappeared. The brainwashing class was afraid of being held responsible and urged the police substation to pick her up. She was released home on November 15, 2002. Her condition became worse upon reaching home, and she died on February 23, 2003.
