ULAANBAATAR (GoGo Mongolia) - President of Mongolia Kh.Battulga announces that he appointed lawyers to restore the death penalty as child abuse deepens in the country. 

"The death penalty is not suited in the current Mongolian society. We should talk about abolishing it when we have a stable society and matured individuals", says the President. 

Capital punishment has been abolished in Mongolia since 2012. Until then, the death penalty was applied to the child abuse-related or brutal murder cases. Capital punishment was formally removed from statutes by a 2015 Act, which took effect on July 1, 2016.
