Maui part of court reform in Mongolia
WAILUKU, Maui (AP) — Eight prosecutors from Mongolia are using Hawaii courts to learn about the U.S. judicial system.
The group arrived on Maui on Saturday, where they learned about elements of the court system commonly known in the United States but foreign concepts to the prosecutors from the isolated, landlocked Asian country.
The visit came as Mongolian officials are working to reform the country’s judicial system, said Assistant Prosecutor General Ganzorig Gombosuren, of the Office of the Prosecutor General in Mongolia. The office is roughly equivalent to the attorney general’s office in the United States.
