Mongolians are firmly protesting against a “coal mafia”, led by ex-President Kh.Battulga who have apparently robbed the public purse of billions of dollars. The government investigation committee is considering about 1 million tonnes of coal may have been released without registration. During the investigation, it was revealed that 207,000 tons of coal exported to China without Mongolian customs registration between 20 May and 20 June, 2017, inspectors at the time determined that 3,758 coal haul trucks were registered as “empty” at customs.
