HÀ NỘI — The Secretariat of the Communist Party of Việt Nam (CPV) Central Committee has decided to issue a warning as a disciplinary measure against the Party Delegation to the Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) of the 2011-16 tenure for its violations in the case regarding MobiFone’s purchase of 95 per cent of the shares of AVG Audiovisual JSC.
The decision was made during the Secretariat’s meeting in Hà Nội yesterday, which was chaired by General Secretary of the CPV Central Committee Nguyễn Phú Trọng.
According to the Secretariat, the MIC’s Party Delegation did not obey the principles of the Party’s operations; violated the principle of democratic centralism and working regulations; showed a lack of responsibility and relaxed its leadership, management, inspection and monitoring.
These wrongdoings, the Secretariat said, resulted in the MIC and the MobiFone Telecommunication Corporation seriously infringing upon legal regulations on building, assessing, approving and carrying out the project, resulting in huge losses to State assets.
The MIC’s Party Civil Affairs Committee also allowed some of the ministry’s leaders seriously violate working regulations and fail to complete their assigned tasks. At the same time, it did not seriously instruct the implementation of the Government Inspectorate’s conclusions on the aforementioned project, the Secretariat said.
The serious violations committed by the MIC’s Party Delegation have led to huge losses to the State assets, seriously impacting the operation and equitisation of MobiFone and the prestige of Party organisations and the MIC, as well as causing public concern.
Regarding the case of Trần Việt Thắng – a member of the Executive Committee of the Centrally-run Businesses Bloc’s Party Organisation and Vice Secretary of the Party Committee of the Việt Nam Cement Industry Corporation (VCIC) – the Secretariat said that during Thắng’s time serving as Vice Secretary of the Party Committee and General Director of VCIC and Chairman of the Board of Directors and General Director of Hà Tiên 1 Cement JSC, he violated the principle of democratic centralism and the organisational and operational regulations of VCIC. He signed for the issuance and enforcement of several regulations on business management beyond his competence.
Thắng also violated the Law on Enterprises and the Bidding Law, along with the Party’s regulations on things that a Party member is not allowed to do and on the responsibility of setting an example for other officials and Party members.
His violations were very serious, harming the interests of businesses, causing bad public opinions and negatively affecting the reputation of the Party organisation and VCIC.
The Secretariat decided to relieve Thắng from his posts as member of the Executive Committee of the Centrally-run Businesses Bloc’s Party Organisation and member of the Executive Committee of the VCIC’s Party Organisation. — VNS
