Khurts, former counterintelligence officer of Mongolian Central Intelligence Agency and secretary of Mongolian National Security Council, top state organ, is wanted for the kidnap and false imprisonment of a Mongolian national suspected of murdering a government official. Khurts was allegedly involved in the 2003 kidnap of Enkhbat Damiran, who was taken from France to Berlin, drugged and flown to the Mongolian capital, Ulan Bator in 2004.

  1. Khurts is a Mongolian thug. The British Government is correct in extraditing this man to Germany to face the German judicial system which I am certain will find him guilty of his crimes and put him behind bars where he belongs. Is the alternative to return him to Mongolia where he will run further amok and cause even more trouble? From the ridiculous comments and slogans written on posters displayed outside the British Embassy, they further support opinions that the Mongols are rich in mineral resources but poor with the grey matter in their oversized heads !!

  2. The British has to release Mr.Kurts immediately . This is the oppressive and impossible act.

  3. Yag sullaj haragdaach. Naad durakaa ooriig ni sain zodoj, taria tarj, zovoo. Yag gemgui huniig zovooj baisan shig ni.

    Jiriin huniig zovooh durtai humuust surgamj bolog.

  4. Keep Khurts the thug in German jail....Don't send him back. He will continue his heinous crimes against ordinary Mongolians.....
