Mongolian newspaper journalists face fines, criminal defamation charges

A Mongolian court has imposed fines totalling approx. US$17,000 on three newspaper journalists, specifying that "the inability to pay the fines would result in a 3 year prison sentence." Globe International Center disputes the court's decision as it may cause financial hardship for the media outlet and act as a form of economic censorship at the government's discretion.
