The Mongolian government on Wednesday, October 21, stated that it will augment the number of policemen throughout the country to stop violence and improve protection of children.
Tseden-Ish Ganzorig, leader of the government's press office, stated in a report that "In order to prevent any violence and crimes against children, the Mongolian government has decided to increase the number of child protection police officers by 103".
He added that there will be one child protection policeman for every 8,000 children.
Problems linked to child protection and family violence have become a hot subject in Mongolia after a nine-year-old girl has lately been hit to death by his stepfather.
