HÀ NỘI — The Secretariat of the Party Central Committee agreed on disciplinary measures against a senior official from the northern mountainous province of Sơn La and a naval officer at a meeting in Hà Nội on Wednesday.
Hoàng Tiến Đức, member of the provincial Party Committee of Sơn La (2015-20 term), secretary of the Party Committee (2015-20 term) and director of Sơn La’s Department of Education and Training, was stripped of all his Party positions for violations involving the senior high school examination in 2018 in Sơn La.
The Secretariat said in his capacity as standing deputy chairman of the steering committee for the senior high school examination and chairman of the exam council, Đức was responsible for advising the provincial People’s Committee to select two officials to oversea the exam. The officials he chose had children sitting the same exam, which was a violation of exam regulations.
He was also blamed for the lack of monitoring during the exam, resulting in serious violations of exam regulations and some officials being prosecuted.
Đức has admitted his violations and mistakes. Agencies were of the view that his violations were serious, negatively affecting the reputation of the local Party, authorities, education sector and himself, and causing resentment in society to the level that required the imposition of Party disciplinary measures.
The other official was Vice Admiral Nguyễn Văn Tình, who must bear a leader’s responsibility for serious violations and mistakes during the time he served as member of the Party Central Committee, member of the Central Military Commission, Secretary of the Party Committee of the Naval Force (from November 2005 to January 2008) and Political Commissar.
Specifically, the standing board of the Party Committee of the Việt Nam People’s Navy during the 2005-20 term violated the principle of centralised democracy and working regulations as well as the jurisdiction and laws on land management; and slackened leadership, direction, inspection and supervision.
Agencies concluded the Vice Admiral’s mistakes were serious, negatively affecting the reputation of the Party organisation, the military and himself. The Party Central Committee’s Secretariat decided to give him an official warning. — VNS
