Acting Chairman and a member of the National Human Rights Commission of Mongolia, J. Khunan, sent an official letter to Doohwan Song, Chairman of the National Commission of Korea on December 2, 2021.
The response to the letter was reviewed on December 17, 2021, in which it said, “We express our deep regret that a 13-year-old Mongolian girl living in South Korea was bullied by her high school students. In every country and society, the principle that every child should be free from all forms of violence must be upheld, and the rights of the child must be protected under all circumstances. The NHRCK monitored the activities of the police, the education department, and the school. The Commission also investigated the case to determine what the victim had experienced based on the testimony of the victim and her mother, as well as the testimony of a witness. Based on the results of the preliminary investigation, the Standing Committee decided on December 16, 2021, to conduct an inspection on human rights violations and discrimination and to conduct an ex-officio review to eliminate the violations. The NHRCK will submit its findings to the NHRCM upon completion of the review proceedings. As the Chairman of the National Human Rights Commission Korea, he expressed his readiness to work with the National Human Rights Commission of Mongolia not only to protect common human rights but also to protect the rights of Korean and Mongolian citizens residing in their respective territories.
