17 years' jail term for passing secrets to China

Mr. Ts.Jargalsaikhan, advisor at the Foreign Relations Department of Parliament, has been sentenced to 17 years in prison for passing on through email to Chinese officials secret documents related to the Speaker’s visit to Russia. He is the son of Mr. D.Tsakhilgaan, a former Mongolian Ambassador to China.
Journalists were not allowed to attend the trial at the Chingeltei district court which passed the sentence last week. Two other persons working at the Foreign Relations Ministry, B.Bolor and G.Baigalmaa, were also charged in the case but were acquitted.
