     中国人权获悉,8月29日,北京市政府劳动教养管理委员会撤销了12天前送达吴殿元和王秀英两位老人处对其进行劳动教养一年的决定。79岁的吴殿元和77岁的王秀英于北京奥运期间申请到官方指定的集会游行示威场所进行游行示威后,被当局处以劳教。 (博讯 boxun.com)

    
    
     中国人权执行主任谭竞嫦表示:“中国人权欢迎北京市当局这一决定,同时认为,对两位老人处以劳动教养的决定本身就是荒谬的。在国际社会的强烈关注下,中国政府自己都不得不改正这个严苛、不适当的惩罚。”
    
    
     中国的劳动教养制度早就为人诟病,不仅违反国际人权标准,而且与中国政府宣称的“依法治国”、建设一个法制社会背道而驰。中国人权敦促中国政府尽早采取切实行动,取消这一践踏人权的劳教制度。

    Authorities Relent on Reeducation-Through-Labor Sentence for Elderly Women who Applied for Protest Permit
    
    August 29, 2008
    
    
    Human Rights in China has learned that, on August 29, the Beijing Municipal Reeducation-Through-Labor Decision Committee rescinded its decision to sentence two elderly women to a year of Reeducation-Through-Labor (RTL) – less than two weeks after the decision was delivered. Wu Dianyuan (吴殿元), 79, and Wang Xiuying (王秀英), 77, were sentenced after applying for permits to demonstrate in the officially designated “protest zones” during the Beijing Olympics.
    
    
    “Human Rights in China welcomes this action but strongly believes that the original RTL decision was baseless,” said Sharon Hom, executive director of Human Rights in China. “In the glare of international attention, it seems that even the government itself has acknowledged that this punishment was harsh and inappropriate,” she said.
    
    China’s RTL system has long been widely criticized, not only because it violates international standards of human rights, but also because it is in direct conflict with the Chinese government’s self-professed “rule by law.”
    
    Human Rights in China urges the Chinese government to immediately take practical measures to abolish the RTL system, which tramples on human rights.
