In December, S.Erdene, the director of the “Ev Sanaanii Negdel” trade union from the “Erdenes Tavan Tolgoi” (ETT) mining complex left for South Korea in order to receive medical treatment. It will be recalled that in November, S.Erdene has set himself on fire at a press conference, as a protest against the company’s decision to transfer 203 staff to a Chinese company. Following this attempted self immolation, ETT offered to pay for treatment and also changed the decision regarding the staff transfer. When we contacted them to obtain information about Mr Erdene’s treatment, ETT said: “Skin grafting and other medical treatment is being provided. Our company has provided MNT 130 million for his treatment”.
