- Article 4.2 '... The State will respect the predominant position of the Buddhist religion in Mongolia';

- Article 4.7 '... The organized propagation of religion from outside are forbidden';

- Article 4.8 'The absolute number of lamas and clergy and the location of churches are controlled and regulated by State';

- Article 7.5 'It is forbidden to introduce activities which are either alien to the traditions and customs of the Mongolian people, or inhumane';

- Article 8.2 'The organization of religious instruction and gatherings in State educational establishments or organization is forbidden ...';

- Article 9.1 'Request by citizens to establish churches will be received by khurals of representatives of the citizens of aimaks (local councils) and the capital. They will make decisions as to whether the requests are to be approved or refused and on the basis of such permission being given the central organ of State administration concerned with questions of justice will register the church'.

- In May 1992, Mr. Danny Arichea, consultant translator to the United Bible Society in Hong Kong was refused a visa to visit the Mongolian Bible Society. The reason given for the refusal was that the Mongolian Bible Society was not permitted to issue invitations to foreigners;

- In January 1993, Mr. Danny Arichea and Ms. Jean Li Tsai of the United Bible Society in Hong Kong were unable to obtain visas;

- In July 1993, the Mongolian Christ Church was no longer authorized to rent the hall of the Mongolian Information Centre for meetings. Authorization for use of the Mongolian Cultural Centre hall was renewed in August 1993, but only for Tuesday evenings after working hours and Sunday mornings;

- In December 1993, two Russian Christians, Aleksei Yakovleyvich Kurkin and Igor Sergeevich Lazyanin of the organization 'Friedanstimme', who had received invitations from the Mongolian Bible Society, were denied visas;

- Since January 1994, the Christian churches, including the Mongolian Christ Church, have been under threat of losing their places of worship, as a result in particular of article 8 of the Law of 30 November 1993. In Mongolia, the churches do not own their own places of worship as they have insufficient funds for the purpose and must rent them from the State. The above-mentioned article could lead to a refusal to authorize the letting of public premises for religious purposes."
