Print  E-mail 

Ms. Liu Tongling, female, 53, was an employee of the Sanan Industrial Company and lived in Daqing City, Heilongjiang Province.  Since the persecution started in July 1999,  Ms. Liu has been constantly detained, persecuted and tortured because she was a Falun Gong practitioner.   On September 9, 2003, she was arrested again and sent to a brainwashing class by security guards from the Sanan Industrial Company and the police from Rang District Chengxin Police Station.  She went on a hunger strike to protest the persecution.  On September 12, 2003, she was sent to Harbin City Drug Rehabilitation Center.

At the drug rehabilitation center, Ms. Liu refused to give up Falun Gong and she continued her hunger strike in protest of her illegal detention.  The guards tortured her by putting her into solitary confinement. She soon showed symptoms of heart disease, vasculitis, etc. When her family members were finally allowed to see her, they found her extremely thin and weak. Her family members asked for permission to take her for medical treatment. However, the drug rehabilitation center refused.   On October 12, 2003, one month after she was sent to Harbin City Drug Rehabilitation Center, Ms. Liu Tongling died in the center.
