ULAANBAATAR, Mongolia, April 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
The friends and family of former Mongolia president and prime minister Nambaryn Enkhbayar have made available video dramatizing his arrest by members of the state security service and police on 13 April 2012.
Mr Enkhbayar remains in prison, denied legal representation and communication with the outside world. There is a growing campaign of intimidation against his supporters, colleagues and party members.
Mr Enkhbayar as the video makes clear was leader of the MPRP opposition party, and was doing well in the polls, gaining new voters and sitting MPs for the party, and exploring alliances with other political groups.
Parliamentary elections are scheduled to take place at the end of June, and the ability of Mr Enkhbayar's party to fight for its supporters and all citizens has been seriously compromised.
The case and circumstances of Mr Enkhbayar's detention certainly calls into question the commitment of the ruling coalition to democratic principles, and undermines Government expressions of support for human rights and rule of law.
Friends and Family of Nambaryn Enkhabayar.
