TOP POLICE OFFICIALS LIKELY TO FACE NEW CHARGES FOR JULY 1 DEATHS

Following a review of the role of three senior police officials in the five deaths on July 1, 2008, a new case is like to be opened against them. State Prosecutor General D.Dorligjav ordered the review. Mr. Ch.Amarbold, former Chairman of the General Police Department, Mr. D.Zorigt, former Chief of Ulaanbaatar Police, and Mr. Sh.Batsukh, former Chief of Law and Order Department, were earlier found guilty of “causing considerable damage through misuse of official power”, and barred from holding any state office for five years. The judges in the case might have sentenced them to five years in jail, but the Prosecutors’ Board decided to apply the law on pardon to the high officials during investigation.
The review is believed to have recommended a fresh trial on different charges. The suggested provision of the Criminal Law now is “failure to use and exercise authority”.  The provision is usually applied to military officials and, if the court finds them guilty, the three top police officers could be sentenced to 5-108 years’ imprisonment.
