Former Mongolian President Ts.Elbegdorj has been questioned by the Independent Authority against Corruption. The meeting took place on 22 February. According to one source, he has given a statement regarding the Tavan Tolgoi coal mining project.
A month ago, Kh.Battulga, President of Mongolia submitted 178 pages of material regarding Tavan Tolgoi to M.Enkh-Amgalan, General Prosecutor.
It is purely a political persecution and repression. The Head of State of a country personally handing documents over to the Prosecutors regarding the highly populised Tavan Tolgoi project that was not even approved. This influence on the judiciary is unprecedented in Mongolia. The rule of law should be above the rule of man. Mongolia is the beating heart of freedom and the anchor of democracy in the vast region of Eurasia. It should remain so and will continue to be without becoming a member of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization.
Ts.Elbegdorj is one of those people who opposes to entering of Mongolia to the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO). He openly expresses his opposition to public. Ts.Elbegdorj served as fourth Mongolian President from 2009 to 2017.
