Yesterday, the director of the Standing Committee for Appeal, Member of Parliament, J.Batzandan met B.Bulgan at a detention center in Tuv Province. During the meeting, she requested to see her defence lawyer more often; she has not seen him since 24th December. She also asked for books, newspapers and magazines to be brought for her to read. J.Batzandan has said that the Standing Committee of Appeal will deliver a letter to the Prosecutors, in which a request is to be made for legal protection.
At the request of B.Bulgan’s mother D.Baigalmaa, representatives of the Standing Committee have visited her in prison. B.Bulgan has said that she has no complaints about the conditions in the prison or the food. The lawyers have taken some statements and explanations from her. B.Bulgan said she hopes that “truth will win”.
