HÀ GIANG — The Hà Giang Province’s Party Committee has taken disciplinary action against some senior leaders for committing violations related to the exam cheating scandal in the province last year.
The Party Committee on Tuesday announced disciplinary action by issuing warnings against Trần Đức Quý, vice chairman of the provincial People's Committee and head of the steering committee for the national high school examination; and Vũ Văn Sử, former director of the provincial Department of Education and Training and chairman of the National High School Examination Council in 2018 in Hà Giang province.
Earlier, on Monday, the provincial Party Committee held a meeting to review and decide the disciplinary measures for two officials for wrongdoings and violations in organising the national high school examination in the province last year.
According to the initial investigations, 309 test sheets of 107 students in Hà Giang were found to have inflated scores.
The police ended the investigation and transferred the file to the People's Procuracy, requesting the prosecution of five defendants for abusing their position and power while on duty. — VNS
