Mongolian president has appointed lawyers to restore death penalty, Mongolian media report.
"The death penalty is not suited in the current Mongolian society. We should talk about abolishing it when we have a stable society and matured individuals," Gogo Mongolia reported Battulga as saying.
Capital punishment for child abuse-related or brutal murder cases has been abolished in Mongolia in 2012.
Death sentence was formally removed from statutes by a 2015 Act, which took effect on July 1, 2016.
