Elderly man in Hamgyong returns to labor brigade after being refused at home 

Choe, an elderly in his 60s was recently kicked out of his own home upon returning from a disciplinary labor brigade in Hoeryong city. 

Choe was granted an early release from the brigade due to his poor health and need for treatment. However, his second wife and her daughter turned him away at the door, saying they couldn’t feed him in a situation where they didn’t even have enough food for themselves. 

The man returned to the disciplinary labor brigade having nowhere to go to and was admitted for treatment at the city hospital.
