Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ A court session of supervisory instance for suspects of S.Zorig‘s murder is taking place on August 4. Ts.Amgalanbaatar, B.Sodnomdarjaa and T.Chimgee were sentenced to 24-25 years of imprisonment in high-security correctional facilities as a result of the hearings conducted last December.

The appellate court has not changed the court decision on the grounds that the witness testimonies had been proven by evidence.

Meanwhile, the defendants refused to accept the court decisions and the case has now been transferred to supervisory court.

Sanjaasurengiin Zorig, who had been working as the Minister for Infrastructure and a member of parliament, was allegedly assasinated on October 2 of 1998. Until 2016, the case had remained unresolved.
