Former employees of Mongolia's anti-corruption agency complain about illegal dismissals


08:15, December 27, 2011

ULAN BATOR, Dec. 26 (Xinhua) -- Nine former employees of Mongolia's anti-corruption agency filed a complaint with the State Service Council that they were illegally dismissed, local media reported Monday.

Many former employees of the Independent Agency Against Corruption were laid off and replaced after new executive officers took control on Nov. 18, the report said.

President Tsakhia Elbegdorj in November appointed Navaansuren Ganbold as chairman of the agency and former spy Bat Khurts as vice chairman. Some executive officers were then brought over from the National Security Council to work in the agency.

Khurts, who led the executive office of the National Security Council, was detained by the United Kingdom and then extradited to Germany for the alleged kidnapping of a Mongolian national in Europe. He was released by Germany in October ahead of German Chancellor Angela Merkel's visit to Mongolia.

The complaint was filed with the State Service Council on Friday.

"Timing to resolve this issue will depend on the nature of the complaint," said Dorjdamba Zumberellkham, chairman of the State Service Council. "If it is found that these people have been dismissed illegally, the council will demand the agency to reinstate these people in their former positions," he said.
