Mai Van Hao, former member of the Standing Board of the Party Committee and former Deputy Chief of Staff of Army Corps 4; and Col.

Pham Bao, former Vice Secretary of the Party cell and former head of the division for economy - planning; and Col.

Col. Nguyen Van Giang, former Vice Secretary of the Party Committee of the Vietnam Military Medical University, revealed shortcomings in the management and use of the school’s dormitory, according to the Inspection Commission.

The commission decided to issue warnings to Lt. Gen. Nguyen Van Thanh, Lt. Gen. Tran Xuan Ninh, Col. Mai Van Hao, Col. Phan Van Tien, and Col. Nguyen Van Giang, and reprimanded Col. Nguyen Xuan Dong, Col. Pham Bao, and Col. Nguyen Tuan Anh.

As for Nguyen Van Quan, member of the Standing Board of the Gia Lai Provincial Party Committee and head of that committee’s organising board, the Inspection Commission held that while serving as a member of the Party Committee, Secretary of the Party unit and Chief Prosecutor of the Provincial People’s Procuracy, he violated the principle of democratic centralism, work regulations, Party regulations, and State laws on directing the settlement of an asset misappropriation case, thus hampering the investigation, prosecution, and trying of the case and negatively affecting the prestige of the Party organisation and himself.

The commission decided to give Quan a warning.
