HÀ NỘI — The Party Central Committee’s Secretariat has expelled former leaders of the Vietnam Social Security (VSS) and the Quảng Ninh provincial Department of Education and Training from the Party for their wrongdoings.
The Secretariat made the decision during a meeting held on Tuesday under the chair of Party General Secretary Nguyễn Phú Trọng.
Based on proposals submitted by the Party Central Committee’s Inspection Commission and opinions given by Party organisations, the Secretariat held that while serving as Secretary of the Party unit at and General Director of the VSS, Nguyễn Huy Ban and Lê Bạch Hồng seriously violated the Party’s regulations and the State’s law on the use of the social insurance fund, causing great financial losses to the State. They have been imprisoned for “deliberately violating the State’s regulations on economic management, causing serious consequences.”
Meanwhile, as a member of the Quảng Ninh provincial Party Committee, and Secretary of the Party Committee at and Director of the provincial Department of Education and Training, Vũ Liên Oanh was held responsible for this Party committee’s violations and shortcomings in its leadership and directions over the building and implementation of working regulations. She lacked sense of responsibility and let law violations occur during the implementation of some investment projects in the 2015 - 2019 period. Police launched an investigation into Oanh and put her into temporary detention for “violating bidding regulations, causing serious consequences.”
The Secretariat said the violations committed by the three were “very serious”, causing great financial losses to the State, negatively affecting Party organisations’ prestige, and stirring public concern. Given this, they must receive strict disciplinary measures in line with the Party’s rules.
Basing on the Politburo’s Regulation No 102-QD/TW, issued on November 15, 2017, the Secretariat decided to expel Ban, Hồng, and Oanh from the Party. —VNS
