HÀ NỘI – Two 220kV-electric poles, which were built with concrete mixed with soil, in Vụ Bản District of the northern province of Nam Định will be demolished, the Sông Đà Stock Company 11 said.
A few days ago, Việt Nam News had reported that a case of cheating was discovered in the company’s construction section.
At a meeting held yesterday, the company’s deputy general director, Phạm Lạp, admitted the wrongdoings in the construction section and announced strict punishments would be given to six employees connected with the incident.
“After evaluating the results of the concrete quality tests, we confirmed that the people’s accusation of cheating was completely right,” Lạp said.
“We have given strict punishment to the staff that indulged in the cheating,” he added.
Lạp said the wrongdoing was very serious and it had badly affected to company’s reputation and the lives of thousands of employees.
The loss caused by the cheating will be compensated by the employees who were directly involved, he said.
Subsequently, Nguyễn Văn Toán and Nguyễn Văn Đương, heads of the construction section, were suspended from their posts. Complaints were also lodged against two leaders of the Nam Định branch of the Sông Đà Company for loose supervision and management of the construction.
Meanwhile, Vũ Ngọc Hồi, one of the people who had denounced the cheating in public, was given an apology and thanked by the company.
Earlier, Hồi had been accused to making up the story to take revenge against some people in the company’s construction section. — VNS
