Amsterdam & Partners represents the former prime minister of Mongolia to defend against what he says are bogus criminal charges related to a huge mining project.

Chimediin Saikhanbileg, who headed Mongolia’s government from 2014 to 2016, is currently in the US.

Amsterdam is charged with publicizing the political retaliation campaign against its client and highlighting the declining state of the rule of law in Mongolia.

The Economist reported Jan. 28 that Mongolia’s prime minister and his government resigned following anti-government demonstrations.

The magazine noted that the resignation of Ukhnaagiin Khurelsukh may be a ploy to better position him for a run for the presidency in the June elections.
