They are Nguyen Bac Son, former member of the 10th-tenure Party Central Committee and former deputy head of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Information and Education; and Truong Minh Tuan, member of the 12th-tenure Party Central Committee, deputy head of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Information and Education, and former Secretary of the Party Civil Affairs Committee and former Minister of Information and Communications.
The Party Central Committee’s Inspection Commission made the proposals during its 39th session which was convened in Hanoi from September 25-27.
Both Son and Tuan had been prosecuted and detained for investigation into their roles in the case of telecommunication corporation MobiFone purchasing a 95 percent stake of the Audio Global JSC (AVG).
During the meeting, the Party Central Committee’s Inspection Commission also looked into violations of the Standing Board of the Party Committee of the Vietnam National Petroleum Group (Petrolimex).
It concluded that the Standing Board has shown a lack of responsibility and slackened its leadership, supervision and inspection, letting the group violate the Party’s regulations and the State’s laws on the personnel work, capital and asset management and use, petroleum business activities, equitisation, restructuring and State capital divestment and the implementation of some construction projects, causing serious consequences as well as huge money and property losses to the State.
Bui Ngoc Bao, former member of the Standing Board of the Party Committee of the Central Business Bloc, former Secretary of the Petrolimex Party Committee, former Chairman of the Petrolimex Board of Directors and former Petrolimex General Director, bears the main responsibility for violations and wrongdoings of the Standing Board of the Petrolimex Party Committee.
The commission also defined the responsibility of other Petrolimex officials for the above-said violations and wrongdoings.
Such violations have negatively affected the prestige of the Party organisation and Petrolimex, it said, noting that the officials must be disciplined.
The Party Central Committee’s Inspection Commission considered disciplinary measures and proposed the Party Central Committee’s Secretariat decide disciplinary measures against the Standing Board of the Party Committee of the central coastal province of Khanh Hoa for the 2010-2015 and 2015-2020 tenures, the Party Civil Affairs Committee of the provincial People’s Committee for the 2011-2016 and 2016-2021 terms and some provincial officials.
It also proposed the Party Central Committee’s Secretariat impose disciplinary measures on officials of the northern mountainous provinces of Hoa Binh and Ha Giang for their violations and wrongdoings in organising the national high school exams in 2018.
The Party Central Committee’s Inspection Commission decided to expel Truong Quy Duong, former Director of Hoa Binh General Hospital, from the Party for his lack of responsibility causing serious consequences in a deadly medical incident in the hospital in 2017.
