3 ministers accused of corruption

Former Mongolian finance minister Bayartsogt Sangajav is arrested early April by Mongolia’s Independent Agency Against Corruption. This happens after a Swiss federal court ruled legitimate the seizure of Bayartsogt’s Swiss bank accounts holding USD 10 million; money that is allegedly linked to his signing of the Oyu Tolgoi Investment Agreement in 2009.

Besides, two former Mongolian prime ministers are detained by the agency. They are accused of abuse of office, related to the Oyu Tolgoi Mine, the Oyu Tolgoi Investment Agreement in 2009, and Oyu Tolgoi second phase underground development and financing plan in 2015.
