Mongolian official denied bail in kidnap case

Mongolian official denied bail in kidnap case

A British court has again refused to grant bail to a Mongolian official who is wanted in Germany for kidnapping.
Bhat Khurts appeared on Wednesday in City of Westminster Magistrates Court, where a judge reserved a decision on extradition until Feb. 18.
Khurts, who headed Mongolia's counterterrorism unit, and three other agents are accused of abducting a Mongolian refugee in France. The refugee later died in Mongolia.
Khurts has been accused of using Mongolian missions in Germany and France to evade justice.
Aaron Watkins, a lawyer appearing for the German government, dismissed claims that British officials had plotted to lure Khurts to the United Kingdom. Watkins said a European Arrest Warrant had been issued in 2003.
Khurts claims he was unaware of the warrant.
