MPRP demonstrates on behalf of ‘political prisoner’


During the opening session of the VII Ministerial Conference of the Community of Democracies, members and supporters of Mongolian People’s Revolutionary Party (MPRP) held a peaceful demonstration on Sukhbaatar Square with placards proclaiming slogans such as “Mongolia has a political prisoner,” “Human rights are not guaranteed in Mongolia,” and “We still want real democracy.”

The demonstrators explained that the purpose of their demonstration was to highlight that they believe the Chairman of MPRP, former president of Mongolia N.Enkhbayar, is being repressed for political reasons.

N.Enkhbayar was arrested in April 2012 and was found guilty on corruption charges in August and sentenced to four years in prison. Following an appeal in December, the former president’s sentence was reduced to two-and-a-half years.
