Statement of the Inner Mongolian People’s Party (IMPP)

about the Defamation of the IMPP by some people in the Press

April 29, 2015

 

On March 1, 2015, Khuvisgalt Khereid, an exiled Mongol dissident based in Japan, issued a document titled “Resolution to Remove Temtselt Shobshuud From the Post of Chairman of IMPP”. This resolution circumvents the law and contravenes the facts, which we set forth and clarify below:

Point One:  As Temtselt Shobshuud, Huchintogos, Hadaa, and other dissidents attended university in Hohhot in the 1980’s, they discussed to establish the Southern Mongolia National Liberation Front. After much planning and effort, the Inner Mongolian People’s Party was established in Princeton, New Jersey, on 23 March 1997, and was approved by and registered in the USA. The registered name is the Inner Mongolian People’s Party (IMPP), the registered place is Germantown, Maryland, United States, the registration number is 20875, and the registered legal representative is Temtselt Shobshuud, who resides in Cologne, Germany. Mr. Temtselt Shobshuud is currently the president and the sole legal representative of the IMPP.

Point Two:  the IMPP president is elected or reelected by the congress. Some have blamed President Temtselt Shobshuud for not convening the congress in nine years, but this only shows they don’t understand the IMPP Constitution. The Constitution clearly stipulates that the IMPP convention should take place once every five years, and may be convened in advance or postponed in special cases, as proposed by the president. After 2009, the intelligence agencies of some countries attempted to infiltrate the IMPP by bribing its members, and tried to turn the IMPP into an organization under external control. They trained operatives to masquerade as IMPP members, engrave seals and issue documents in Japan and Mongolia, and also assigned intelligence personnel to establish overseas branches from which to conduct their covert activities. President Temtselt Shobshuud endured a great deal to combat the conspiracy, safeguard the independence of the IMPP, and maintain the dignity of the Mongolian people. Under these special circumstances, the IMPP president wisely exercised his power to postpone the congress. 

Point Three:  Regardless of whether the formal congress convened, under the leadership of the president Temtselt Shobshuud, the IMPP never stopped campaigning for protection of the basic rights of the Mongolian people.  In many international conferences and demonstrations, you can see President Temtselt Shobshuud in Mongolian costume enthusiastically speaking to the crowds. In many radio stations and newspapers, you can see President Temtselt Shobshuud blaming the CPC for human rights abuses. The purpose behind the establishment of the IMPP was not to create another political party, but to appeal for democracy and human rights in Inner Mongolia, and to speak for the people of Inner Mongolia who are afraid of speaking under the threat and repression of CPC terrorist forces. 

Point Four: Accomplishments of President Temtselt Shobshuud in recent years include the following: 

 (1) In late November 2011, Temtselt Shobshuud held the first Mongolian-Chinese International Seminar on Nationality and Democracy in Leverkusen, Germany.  His Holiness the Dalai Lama sent a congratulatory letter to Temtselt Shobshuud.  Delus, the director of the Association of the Persecuted Nationalities, attended the seminar and made a speech.  Other attendees and presenters included FEI Liangyong,  president of Federation for a Democratic China, Tienchi Martin-Liao, chairperson of Independent Chinese PEN Center, Dr. QIAN Yuejun, chief editor of Chinese European Post, WU Wenxin, responsible person of Falun Dafa Association in Europe, and Dolkun, the vice executive chairman and secretary-general of World Uyghur Congress. Participants also included representatives from America, Canada, Switzerland, Hong Kong, France, Holland, Hungary, Sweden, Belgium, and Germany. 

(2) In April-May 2013, President Temtselt Shobshuud visited Taiwan and made a lecture tour that included stops at over ten universities. The lecture covered the status quo of human rights, rule of law, social and cultural environment of Inner Mongolia which has been deteriorating under the rule of CPC since decades, and the political prospect of Mongolian nationality and democracy, including sovereignty self-determination.

(3) In March 2014, the president Temtselt Shobshuud visited Taiwan and consulted with Pan-Blue and Pan-Green political forces to establish the Association of Southern Mongolia’s Friends, which aims to encourage support for democracy, human rights, and sovereignty self-determination campaigns of Inner Mongolia. 

(4) In January -February 2015, President Temtselt Shobshuud visited Japan to preside over the symposium for the purpose of establishing a Preparatory Committee of Southern Mongolia Great Khural; afterwards, he visited Taiwan to hold the establishment ceremony of the Association of Southern Mongolia’s Friends together with Taiwan political circles, which laid a solid foundation for the prospects of sovereignty self-determination of Inner Mongolia, improved human rights, and democracy in Inner Mongolia. These significant movements would certainly elicit a response from the CPC, and be vigorously suppressed. 

Point Five: The Resolution asserts that “Temtselt Shobshuud violates the program of the IMPP by seeking independence and raises proposals harming the essential interests of the Mongolian people.” This is a misunderstanding about the historical aim of the IMPP, and a misunderstanding about the aim of IMPP in the new era. The “Proclamation to All People” issued at the first convention of IMPP in 1925 proclaims that “people of all nationalities within China reserve the right to make independent determination and self management; when China abolishes imperialism and domestic tyranny and establishes a genuine democratic government, the Mongolian people of Inner Mongolia will also establish a democratic revolutionary government; the masses, male or female, have the isocracy”. In other words, the historical IMPP sought democracy, human rights and autonomy; in 1980s, Hadaa, Temtselt Shobshuud, and others recalled the painful experience of the Cultural Revolution when the totalitarian CPC cruelly suppressed the human rights of the Inner Mongolian people, and decided to resist against the totalitarian CPC and defend the legal rights of the Inner Mongolian people. Hadaa was jailed for this reason, and Temtselt Shobshuud was compelled to go into exile in Outer Mongolia and finally was displaced to Germany. Campaigning for national independence is a means and a road, but its ultimate purpose is to safeguard the basic rights of all the people living in that region. 

Point Six: To exert more formal pressure on CPC and make the Mongolian people more confident in their future prospects, President Temtselt Shobshuud travelled extensively around the world and contacted colleagues to establish the Inner Mongolia Overseas Khural as a platform abroad for Inner Mongolia to seek democracy, human rights and genuine autonomy.  The CPC was angered by these moves, and attempted to prevent the establishment of the Khural. Given this background, it was expected that there would be voices which would denounce and belittle the dignity of the president Temtselt Shobshuud, and hinder his efforts. The March Resolution is a political conspiracy.  Many of the signatories of this Resolution are not IMPP members, and those claiming to hold a position in the IMPP are only staff appointed by the president to work for the IMPP. For example: 

—Khuvisgalt Khereid, former secretary general of IMPP, resigned from the IMPP post in Taiwan in 2013 and returned the IMPP flag. He had nothing to do with IMPP and thereafter he no longer speaks on behalf of the IMPP. 

—B. Tumenulzii was an exchange student between Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region and Mongolia and an overseas student in Outer Mongolia receiving a subsidy from the Chinese government. In order to apply for asylum and go into exile abroad, he stated he joined the IMPP in 1986, which is impossible given with the fact that IMPP was established in 1997. After arrival in America, he established the Southern Mongolia Human Rights Information Center with others and resigned from the IMPP.  However, he cannot resign from an organization to which he never belonged.

— J. Soyolt was appointed as the representative of the IMPP in Outer Mongolia, and resigned from the IMPP after becoming a citizen of Outer Mongolia, and now is engaging in trade between China and Outer Mongolia.

—Shinjilt Khereid joined the IMPP in Japan and faded from political activities after immigrating to Europe, and confessing that he doesn’t want to have a hand in IMPP affairs later any more. 

—S. Bayar is of unknown origin and each branch of the IMPP finds no record of this person. 

In conclusion, the “Resolution to Remove Temtselt Shobshuud From of the Post of Chairman of IMPP” is based on false information and therefore has no legal basis.  It is a cyber campaign based on speculation without any evidence, and the IMPP finds it necessary to inform the media of the facts.  The IMPP and President Temtselt Shobshuud will never give up the ambition to realize democracy and human rights in Inner Mongolia because of such man-made interference. 

Point Seven:  the IMPP dedicates itself to resistance against the oppression of the Mongolian people by the CPC, and encourages colleagues at home and abroad to establish new associations and political parties, campaigning for achievement of democracy, human rights and autonomy of Inner Mongolia.  The IMPP is a legal entity registered in the United States of America with Temtselt Shobshuud as its appointed representative, and it enjoys the full legal rights afforded to it. If the IMPP discovers any other political party, person, group or organization in America or elsewhere acting in the name of the IMPP, the IMPP will take legal action against such parties in the U.S. courts.
