Imprisonment of former top gov’t officials under Oyu Tolgoi mining deal investigation extended for another month

Preliminary criminal court of Chingeltei district decided to extend jailing of former Finance Minister Bayartsogt, former CEO of State owned Mining company “Erdenes Mongol” Byambasaikhan for another month starting from May 15, 2018.  

According to Otgon, attorney of Bayartsogt, during  hearing on Tuesday held by request of Ulaanbaatar city prosecutor’s office, prosecutor’s office persisted for imprisonment of  Bayartsogt because “ he may commit another crime and  his case is very complicated” .

These former gov’t officials in addition to 2 former PMs of Mongolia have been charged by Independent agency against Corruption  for “ abuse of official position and making clearly illegal decision that creates preferential circumstance for others”  in relation to Oyu Tolgoi investment agreement and questioned by staff of the Anti-corruption body.

Currently, they are detained in detention unit no.461 under Court decision implementation authority and participated in the hearing via online.
