A Beijing court Friday withdrew probation on a former lawyer convicted of inciting to overthrow the state power and put him back in jail.

Gao Zhisheng, 47, was sentenced to three years in prison with five years of probation and deprived of political rights for one year on Dec. 22, 2006, said a statement from the Beijing First Intermediate People's Court.

He had seriously violated probation rules for a number of times, which led to the court decision to withdraw the probation, the statement said.

Gao, holding a residence permit of the city of Urumqi in Xinjiang, had been a lawyer based in Beijing before the conviction.

He would serve his term in prison in next three years, the statement said.
