A WOMAN who was sent back to a labor camp after visiting her son in Beijing has been allowed to leave for medical treatment for a second time.

Police said Zhao Meifu had been punished with a year of labor reeducation on May 14, 2010, after she had been punished several times for violating public order since 2007.

The punishment was suspended when she was diagnosed with hypertension, and other medical problems and she had been allowed to go home to recover.

However, she was found to have been traveling to Beijing on several occasions and on November 12 was sent back to the labor camp, yesterday's Beijing Times reported.

On Friday, she was again allowed home after a hospital diagnosed hypertension and heart problems.

But police in Lanzhou, in northwest Gansu Province, are refusing to revoke the punishment.

Guo Dajun, Zhao's son, said he would keep appealing and find lawyers to end the punishment on his mother. "They accuse my mother to violate certain clauses of some law and they should show evidences otherwise that would be libel," Guo said.

According to a report from the labor camp in Lanzhou, Zhao had been emotionally unstable during her 18 days in the camp since November 12 and was treated five times for heart problems. Zhao was taken to hospital outside the camp on November 19 and 30 and diagnosed with hypertension, a main cause of her heart problems, according to a camp deputy director surnamed Ma.
