On June 25, mem­bers of the Demo­cratic Party (DP)’s Na­tional Pol­icy Com­mit­tee (NPC) held a brief­ing about their re­quest to have Jus­tice Min­is­ter Ts.Nyam­dorj in­ves­ti­gated, which was sub­mit­ted to the In­de­pen­dent Au­thor­ity Against Cor­rup­tion (IAAC).

They said that Min­is­ter Ts.Nyam­dorj vi­o­lated sev­eral laws when he put for­ward a pro­posal to amend the Gen­eral Ad­min­is­tra­tive Law to Par­lia­ment.

Mem­ber of NPC and lawyer D.Orosoo stated that as the com­mit­tee be­lieves that Ts.Nyam­dorj is pushing forth amend­ments to the law for his in­ter­ests with­out re­view­ing the implementation of the law and de­ter­min­ing rea­sons for amend­ing the law by abus­ing his political power, the IAAC should in­ves­ti­gate whether Ts.Nyam­dorj vi­o­lated the law.

Dur­ing the June 26 meet­ing of the Le­gal Stand­ing Com­mit­tee to re­view the amend­ments, Chair­man of the DP S.Er­dene stressed that as the spring ses­sion is clos­ing on Fri­day, re­view­ing the amend­ments is al­most im­pos­si­ble for Par­lia­ment, and the amend­ments have been a con­tro­ver­sial is­sue among the pub­lic. He added that DP be­lieves that amend­ing the Gen­eral Ad­min­is­tra­tive Law through Ts.Nyam­dorj’s pro­pos­als is wrong, and not timely. Min­is­ter Ts.Nyam­dorj should with­draw the amend­ments to re­visit them and make them bet­ter, S.Er­dene said.

The DP chair­man noted that af­ter re­vis­it­ing the amend­ments, Ts.Nyam­dorj can put for­ward the amend­ments to Par­lia­ment in the fall ses­sion.

Min­is­ter of Jus­tice and In­ter­nal Af­fairs Ts.Nyam­dorj re­sponded, “The Ad­min­is­tra­tive Court is still re­vok­ing many good de­ci­sions made by Par­lia­ment and Cabi­net due to il­le­gal ac­tions of few bad judges un­der political and busi­ness in­flu­ences, so I started mak­ing amend­ments to the Gen­eral Ad­min­is­tra­tive Law to close such loop­holes. To tell you the truth, the amend­ments are fo­cused at de­stroy­ing il­le­gal ac­tiv­i­ties within the Ad­min­is­tra­tive Court.”

Ac­cord­ing to Ts.Nyam­dorj, when it comes to the implementation of Par­lia­ment’s de­ci­sion to trans­fer of the 49 per­cent stake of Er­denet Min­ing Cor­po­ra­tion to state own­er­ship, the cur­rent Gen­eral Ad­min­is­tra­tive Law doesn’t work well.

Some ob­servers be­lieve that the DP’s op­po­si­tion to the pro­posed amend­ments to the Gen­eral Ad­min­is­tra­tive Law is re­lated to the party’s mem­bers with in­ter­ests in the 49 per­cent of Er­denet Min­ing Cor­po­ra­tion, which the Mon­go­lian Peo­ple’s Party spear­headed by Ts.Nyam­dorj sought to na­tion­al­ize by amend­ing the law.
