Former principal held in fraud case

A FORMER principal at a medical school in north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region who had fled to Mongolia has been arrested on fraud charges, police said yesterday.

Ethnic Mongolian Batuzhangga, 35, the former head of the Ordos Mongolian-Tibetan Medical School, was arrested in Ordos City on November 12 after he was repatriated from Mongolia on October 4, according to Wang Huishi, director of the Ordos Municipal Public Security Bureau.

Batuzhangga was accused of fabricating student rosters and falsifying accounts to illegally obtain special funds of 102,000 yuan (US$15,000) from a government poverty-alleviation program when he served as principal of the school, Wang said.

Batuzhangga founded the privately owned secondary medical school in 2001, Wang said.

Police began investigating Batuzhangga's case after residents complained in May that he owed large debts but had disappeared, Wang said.

Batuzhangga abruptly announced a vacation at the school on May 25 and fled to Ulan Bator, a city in northwest Mongolia and the country's capital, the next day with his wife and daughter, according to police.

Officers went to Ulan Bator and pursued the case together with Mongolian authorities and Interpol, Wang said.
