En­vi­ron­men­tal­ists com­plain about abuse of power by ad­min­is­tra­tive au­thor­ity

The UB Post - - DOMESTIC -

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Zulza­gan Tugul Fel­low­ship held a press con­fer­ence on Oc­to­ber 9 to re­port about an al­leged il­le­gal con­tract be­tween the Mayor of 2nd baga of Yu­ruu soum in Se­lenge Province and lo­cal res­i­dents.

Leader of Zulza­gan Tugul Fel­low­ship Ch.Al­tan­tuya said that the mayor in­ten­tion­ally vi­o­lated the rights of the fel­low­ship and in­ter­fered in their op­er­a­tions.

“The Mayor of 2nd baga of Yu­ruu soum in­ten­tion­ally ob­structed our op­er­a­tions, car­ried out il­le­gal pro­pa­ganda, vi­o­lated the le­gal rights of the fel­low­ship, and ver­bally abused us when we made a com­plaint,” Ch.Al­tan­tuya said.

“The mayor and land man­agers signed an il­le­gal hay con­tract with soum res­i­dents and un­reg­is­tered peo­ple on Au­gust 25, al­low­ing them to use Khon­gor Val­ley, which is a prop­erty of Zulza­gan Tugul Fel­low­ship. This vi­o­lates the rights given to the fel­low­ship through the Law on Forests. I was treated un­eth­i­cally and in­sulted when I made a com­plaint. The fel­low­ship paid a hay fee for 1,200 hectares and hired two peo­ple to har­vest hay on con­tract, but they are re­fus­ing to give us a sin­gle bun­dle of hay be­cause the mayor told them not to,” Ch.Al­tan­tuya stated at the press con­fer­ence.

The fel­low­ship rep­re­sen­ta­tives al­leged that the mayor and land man­agers of 2nd baga of Yu­ruu soum il­le­gally took own­er­ship of the fel­low­ship’s land as well.

Ch.Al­tan­tuya in­formed that she has re­ported th­ese vi­o­la­tions to the Se­lenge Province Po­lice Depart­ment and asked re­lated as­so­ci­a­tions to thor­oughly in­ves­ti­gate the case un­less they “wish for the fel­low­ship to start a protest”.
