Mongolia sets up ecological police department
“The department is expected to have around 170 police officers,’’ Minister of Justice and Home Affairs Tsend Nyamdorj said.
According to Nyamdorj, the decision was made as part of the government’s efforts to support responsible mining, and the department will pay special attention to the provinces where many mining licenses have been issued.
