Updates on Mongolia
31 Dec 2005
As of February 2005, Mongolia had taken steps to adopt necessary implementing legislation. There was a Parliamentary working group that is reviewing the criminal and criminal procedural laws and preparing possible amendments to the criminal legislation.

At a seminar in October 2002, government and civil society representatives discussed domestic implementation of the Rome Statute and proposed recommendations to be used in the drafting of national implementing legislation. Following the seminar, civil society stakeholders in Mongolia established a Mongolian Coalition for the ICC, comprised of a wide range of NGOs as well as government representatives acting in their personal capacity. The Mongolian Coalition has adopted a charter, a series of by-laws and has elected a Board of Directors. Legal experts within the Mongolian Coalition will conduct comparative research on the ICC and existing criminal procedural law in Mongolia. On the basis of this work, the Mongolian Coalition will produce proposed amendments to national law.

In April 2002, the President of Mongolia signed the instrument of ratification of the Rome Statute following an overwhelming approval (96%) by the Parliament of Mongolia.

Previously, the ratification bill went under review at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and inter-ministerial consultations were conducted.
