Munkhtur, spokesperson of the Mongolian PM Saikhanbileg Chimed said today health Minister Shiilegdamba requested to be released from his cabinet post and in the request he said “ I borrowed money from my long-time friend for personal purpose and kept it in the safe of my office. I was planning to use it for my personal need. I want to emphasize that I didn’t receive bribe.Even though I didn’t receive bribe, probably it will take some time for investigation to be completed due to current political circumstances. I’m resigning in order to ensure stability of cabinet and for honor of health sector workers”.
