Liu Liankun (simplified Chinese: 刘连昆; traditional Chinese: 劉連昆) (1933 - Aug 15, 1999), was a Major General (Shao Jiang) in the People's Liberation Army who provided the Republic of China in Taiwan with secret intelligence about the status of missiles from the People's Republic of China. During the 1996 missile crisis, the Republic of China's Defense Ministry notified the public that the missiles lobbed by the People's Republic of China actually carried unarmed warheads. This tipped off Beijing that Taipei had a high-level mole working on the mainland. Liu, a top Chinese military logistics officer, was arrested, court-martialed and executed in 1999.[1]
