THÁI NGUYÊN – A working delegation led by head of the Party Central Committee’s Inspection Commission Trần Quốc Vượng yesterday worked with authorities of northern Thái Nguyên Province to inspect the investigation and prosecution of corruption and economic cases of public concern.
Between now and October 20, the delegation will inspect 18 local units in terms of the discovery, investigation and trial of corruption and economic corruption cases, as well as the implementation of the Politburo’s Direction on strengthening the Party’s leadership over the settlement of corruption cases.
The team will also inspect the co-ordination of agencies in discovering and dealing with corruption cases.
Speaking with provincial authorities at a meeting yesterday, Vượng said the inspection aims to affirm the Party’s strong determination in the fight against corruption in line with the Resolution adopted by the 12th National Party Congress, thereby spreading effective models and seeking measures to improve the efficiency of uncovering and dealing with corruption.
Difficulties and measures to improve efficiency on detecting and dealing with corruption cases will be improved through the inspection, Vượng said.
The inspection is carried out under the instruction of the Politburo on strengthening the leadership of the Party on detection and handling corruption.
Party General Secretary Nguyễn Phú Trọng said at the 10th meeting of the Central Steering Committee for Anti-Corruption in Hà Nội in April that the settlement of serious and complicated corruption cases of public concern should focus on quality more than quantity.
The Party Chief, who is also head of the Central Steering Committee, called on the committee’s members to set good examples, show their high sense of responsibility before the Party and the people, and stay away from corruption.
In spite of improvements over the past years, corruption is still widespread, hindering the national socio-economic development of the country.
Corruption affects different sectors such as health, education, construction, land management as well as natural resources and the extractive industries. The private sector is also affected by cumbersome legislation, which provides both incentives and opportunities for corruption. — VNS
