Former Member of Parliament and Government N.Nomtoibayar was released from prison today.
He was detained on May 28, 2020, before the end of his term as a member of parliament.

He was suspended from public office for two years and sentenced to one year in prison on criminal charges.
The law provides for imprisonment for the duration of the investigation. Accordingly, N.Nomtoibayar’s detention and sentence expired today.
