The corruption case
hearing of the former President and Head of the Mongolian People’s Revolutionary Party (MPRP), N.Enkhbayar has been postponed three times before, due to weak health conditions (May 24
), refusal from his lawyer (June 04
), and absence of N.Enkhbayar’s lawyer B.Oyunbileg (June 12
) and delayed one time under the request to change his lawyer (June 19
), where the fourth trial was delayed under his request to conduct the trial after 2012 Parliamentary Elections.
Thus, the Sukhbaatar District Court received his request to postpone the trial, where N.Enkhbayar has stated to fully familiarize with his case and not to postpone the trial again.
Although the Head of MPRP N.Enkhbayar, whose trial date has been determined to be held after Naadam celebrations, was eliminated from candidacy
in the State Great Khural (Parliament) Elections by Proportional System, and he has visited Selenge, Darkhan-Uul, Bulgan, Orkhon, Arkhangai and Uvurkhangai aimags
and met with the residents while supporting his fellow MPRP-MNDP (Mongolian National Democratic Party) “Justice” coalition candidates. However, there is an index from the Sukhbaatar District Court that a person on bail within the criminal procedure law is not to leave the premises of the determined residency and has given N.Enkhbayar a warning not to leave Ulaanbaatar city. Thus, the former President of Mongolia has been working in support of the “Justice” coalition candidates that are running in electoral districts of Ulaanbaatar city. N.Enkhbayar, who is in the spotlight for confinement, hunger strike and harsh political struggles, is appealing to vote for the “Justice” coalition candidates
and is also introducing his “Five revolutions to safe Mongolia” Program. Besides, the gathered citizens were interested in the events that happened to N.Enkhbayar over the past month, including why he was arrested and confined, how he was treated at the retention center and at the hospital and his hunger-strike.
