According to the commission, the Party Civil Affairs Committee of the People’s Committee of the Central Highlands province of Dak Nong for the 2016-2021 tenure has violated the principles of democratic centralism and working rules, and slackened its leadership and direction, letting the provincial People’s Committee commit many violations and wrongdoings in land and forest management and protection, thus resulting in State budget loss, forest loss and deforestation, and disputes affecting political security, social order and safety, and the socio-economic development of the locality.
Nguyen Bon – Deputy Secretary of the provincial Party Committee, Secretary of the Party Civil Affairs Committee, and Chairman of the People’s Committee – will take the brunt of responsibility for the violations and wrongdoings of the Party Civil Affairs Committee, it said.
The commission concluded that Bon showed a lack of responsibility in leadership, direction, and management, leading to many violations and wrongdoings in the management, protection, and development of forests.
He also illegally signed the decision on land lease, and forest handover and compensation.
Truong Thanh Tung – member of the provincial Party Committee and the Party Civil Affairs Committee, and Vice Chairman of the People’s Committee – must also bear responsibility for violations and wrongdoings as he directly signed the decision on land and forest lease and handover, and illegally gave instructions on forest compensation.
Such violations and wrongdoings committed by the Party Civil Affairs Committee of the People’s Committee for the 2016-2021 tenure and the two officials are serious, affecting the prestige of the local Party organisation and authorities, sparking bad public opinions. They, therefore, must receive discipline, the commission said.
During the session, the commission also proposed the Politburo and the Party Central Committee consider disciplinary measures against Tat Thanh Cang – member of the Party Central Committee and Permanent Deputy Secretary of the Party Committee of Ho Chi Minh City – for his violations and wrongdoings as concluded in the previous session.
It decided to penalise Lieut. Gen. Nguyen Cong Son, former member of the Standing Board of the Party Committee and Deputy General Director of the General Department of Police; Lieut. Gen. Nguyen Van Ba, former member of the Standing Board of Party Committee and Deputy General Director of the General Department of Polilce; and Maj. Gen. Le Dinh Nhuong, deputy head of the National Assembly (NA)’s Committee on National Defence-Security, former member of the Party Committee and Chief of the Office of the Investigation Police Agency, for their violations wrongdoings as concluded in the 30th session.
Meanwhile, Dang Ngoc Nghia – permanent member of the NA’s Committee on National Defence-Security – received warnings from the commission for his violations and wrongdoing while serving as a member of the Standing Board of Party Committee of the central province of Thua Thien-Hue and head of the provincial Military Command from April 2005 to January 2012.
His violations and wrongdoings were made during the implementation of the Nam Dong-A Luoi road project, which has failed to be put into operation due to its low quality, causing great State budget losses and affecting the prestige of the Party organisation, military, and the official himself.
At the session, the commission also looked into the inspection, supervision and implementation of disciplinary measures of the Standing Boards and Inspection Boards of the provincial Party Committees of Ben Tre, Dong Thap and Phu Yen; and the Standing Board and Inspection Board of the Party Committee of the Ministry of Science and Technology.
It reported the outcomes of the inspection of the Standing Boards of the provincial Party Committees and Secretaries of Kien Giang, Hau Giang and Binh Dinh.
The commission handled denunciations against an organisation and two individuals, complaints against Party disciplines imposed on five cases, and gave opinions on other important issues.
