Earlier today, Mongolia’s anti-corruption agency arrested former Justice Minister D.Dorligjav and his younger brother D.Baatar. Law enforcement officers also searched the former minister’s home yesterday (7 January).
D.Dorligjav has been accused of obtaining USD 4 million by extortion from T.Ganbold, director of Altan Dornod Mongol, a mining company, when he was working as justice minister. The money was transferred though D.Baatar’s account.
However, the ex-minister explained that the USD 2 million had mistakenly been transferred to his brother’s account.
