Former Minister held on corruption charges out on bail


Former Minister of Health and Sports G.Shiilegdamba, who was arrested on corruption charges in November, was released on bail on December 31, 2015.

The IAAC caught former Minister and Secretary-General of Mongolian People’s Party G.Shiilegdamba accepting a bribe of nearly 500 million MNT in his office and immediately arrested him on corruption charges on November 4, 2015.

Sources say that G.Shiilegdamba was released because a preliminary hearing had not taken place within 60 days of his arrest. The court extended G.Shiilegdamba’s time in prison during the investigation by two months, at the request of the Independent Agency Against Corruption (IAAC).

He was detained at the Tuv Province Detention Center until December 4, when he was transferred to the intensive care unit at the State Central Third Hospital due to poor health. He was discharged from hospital three days later and returned to the detention center.
