In this paper, Amnesty International identifies flaws in the draft of the Assorted Criminal Code of Mongolia” and makes recommendations for parliamentarians to make amendments before the Code is enacted. Amnesty International is dismayed that the draft Code retains the death penalty for some crimes and concerned that it fails to ensure that its national courts can investigate and prosecute human rights violations that amount to crimes under international law. The organization is also disappointed that Mongolia has not yet implemented its obligations to cooperate with the International Criminal Court.
