HCM CITY — HCM City’s Party Committee’s Standing Board yesterday proposed disciplining Tất Thành Cang, Politburo member and deputy secretary of HCM City’s Party Committee, for violations related to the transfer of Phước Kiển residential area in the city’s outlying district of Nhà Bè.
Cang reportedly allowed Tân Thuận Investment and Construction Co. Ltd (a State-owned company), to sell a 33.1-ha land plot in the district to Quốc Cường Gia Lai Company at a price much cheaper than market value.
Cang was found to have made unauthorised decisions and violated State regulations on the management of properties, investment of State enterprises and real estate business.
He did not follow regulations in addressing works of the municipal Party Committee.
The city’s Party Committee’s Standing Board assigned the committee’s inspection board to report on the case to the Party Central Committee’s Inspection Commission to decide discipline measures.
Trần Công Thiện, secretary of Tân Thuận Company’s Party Committee and the company’s general director, is responsible for the company’s violations, the city’s Party Committee’s Standing Board said.
The board decided to dismiss Thiện from all of his Party positions and proposed the municipal Party Committee’s Standing Board remove his position as a member of the company’s Member Council and general director. — VNS
