THANH HOA (VNS) — The Transport Department of central Thanh Hoa today suspended its deputy head Trinh Ngoc Minh for negligence in operating and monitoring works assigned by the department.
The time of the suspension is 15 days.
Previously, Minh was allotted to be in charge of the operation of Dong Tam Weighbridge Station.
However, when head of the department Mai Xuan Liem and several staff were on an inspection tour yesterday, Liem allegedly allowed a heavy truck carrying goods beyond its loading capacity to leave.
Liem ordered the truck to go into the station for checking but the inspectors found the weighbridge was unused for a long time.
Therefore, it took time for the station's staff to start the weighbridge. Then the truck was discovered to carry 13.5 tonnes of goods higher than permitted capacity.
The department said during the suspension time, Minh had to make a report to clarify his responsibility in the case. Minh also was asked to give solutions to fix the problem. — VNS
