HÀ NỘI — Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc has called for strict punishments for organisations and individuals who commit violations in land-use and management.
The PM ordered that those who commited violations in handing over, leasing land or switching land-use purposes, land registration, granting land certificate must be punished strictly.
In particular, tough punishments must be imposed on heads of organisations and units which loosen management on land encroachment, transfer, illegal land-use changes and unauthorised land handovers.
Land auctions must follow regulations, especially the auction of “golden land” to avoid waste to State budget and corruption.
The Ministry of Defence has been assigned to work with the Government Inspectorate, Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment and people’s committees of provinces and cities at central level to review and investigate the management and use of defence land nationwide.
Any violations such as illegal use, lease or encroachment of defence land must be dealt with. Heads of organisations and units involved in violations will also be fined. Investigation results must be reported to the Prime Minister no later than November 30 this year.
Authorised agencies have been asked to review the use of agricultural land donated for clinics, markets, community houses and other public places. They also have plans to relocate people out of dangerous areas.
The Government Inspectorate, Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment and people’s committees in provinces and cities at central level have also been asked to address prolonged land disputes, lawsuits and denouncements and propose solutions.
The PM also urged the setup of a land database to reduce administrative procedures and better serve people and enterprises in assessing land to implement investment and business projects.
The PM required chairpersons of provinces and cities at central level to compile and issue detailed regulations on the implementation of Land Law, make amendments or remove expired or inappropriate regulations, or ask competent agencies to do so. — VNS
