HÀ NỘI – The Party Central Committee (PCC) Secretariat yesterday ordered disciplinary action against the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT) and former Minister Vũ Huy Hoàng, accused of abusing his authority.
The decision, based on the level of violations as well as the Party statutes, calls for a warning to be issued to the Party representatives to the MoIT.
According to the conclusions of the Central Committee’s Inspection Commission, the Party delegation to the MoIT was irresponsible and lax in its leadership and direction, violating a number of regulations.
The Party delegation did not follow the rules, procedures and criteria in personnel work, resulting in serious consequences.
It breached legal regulations on verifying the presentation of the Hero of Labour title to PetroVietnam Construction Corporation (PVC).
Then-minister Vũ Huy Hoàng personally showed a lack of good example and self-interested behaviour when receiving and appointing his son Vũ Quang Hải as an inspector of the Vietnam National Tobacco Corporation (Vinataba), and allowing him to join the Board of Directors and take the position of Deputy General Director of the Saigon Beer-Alcohol-Beverage Company (Sabeco).
The 63-year-old PCC former member also incorrectly directed and implemented the regulations of the Party delegation in presenting the Hero of Labour title to the PVC and rewarding the third-class Labour Order to Đặng Vũ Ngoạn, rector of the HCM City University of Food Industry.
He also loosened examination of some of the ministry’s units, allowing them to break regulations on personnel recruitment, evaluation and appointments.
As Secretary of the Party Delegation to the MoIT and Minister of Industry and Trade in 2011-2016, Hoàng must be responsible for the aforesaid violations and flaws that have caused severe consequences, affected the prestige of the Party, the State, the MoIT and raising public concerns. – VNS
