Chairman of the Mongolian People’s Revolutionary Party and former President of Mongolia N.Enkhbayar has filed another appeal with the Association of Mongolian Attorneys to issue an attorney to defend him.

On Monday, the Independent Authority Against Corruption (IAAC) delivered its sixth subpoena to N.Enkhbayar asking him to appear for a testimony. According to the IAAC, N.Enkhbayar has been identified as a suspect in a crime, in accordance with several provisions of the Criminal Code, and needs to testify in front of the agency’s officials.

N.Enkhbayar claims that the IAAC is accusing him of crimes with a political agenda, and is asking the Association of Mongolian Attorneys to find him a highly-professional and experienced attorney to represent him.
