HÀ NỘI — The Party Central Committee’s Inspection Commission has proposed the Politburo consider and take disciplinary action against Vũ Văn Ninh, former member of the Party Central Committee and former Deputy Prime Minister, for his violations committed while holding different positions.
This was one of the issues discussed at the Inspection Commission’s 37th meeting from July 2 to 4.
In an announcement made on Monday, the commission said in the post of Deputy Prime Minister, Vũ Văn Ninh made violations and shortcomings in the decision about the equitisation and the divestment of State capital from Quy Nhơn and Quảng Ninh ports that ran contrary to the Politburo’s conclusions.
While acting as Secretary of the Party Committee of the Ministry of Finance, Minister of Finance and Chairman of the Việt Nam Social Security Management Council, he lacked responsibility in leadership, direction, examination and supervision, leading to the State’s loss of a huge sum of money due to the Việt Nam Social Security’s lending of money to the Agribank Financial Leasing Company No. 2. Many officials and Party members involved in the case have been punished.
The Inspection Commission said Ninh’s violations were “serious” and affected the prestige of the Party organisation and himself.
During its meeting, the commission also looked into wrongdoings of the Standing Board of the Party Committee of the Đồng Nai Province's Department of Public Security.
It concluded that the Standing Board violated the centralised democracy principle and working regulations. They lacked responsibility, examination and supervision and showed poor leadership and direction, leading to many violations and shortcomings in the investigation and settlement of cases and incidents; the management and use of weapons, land, finance and assets; and the personnel work.
The Inspection Commission also pointed out the responsibility of several incumbent and former officials in Đồng Nai Province, adding that violations by the Standing Board and the officials caused “very serious” consequences, affecting the prestige of the Party organisation and law protection agencies and stirring public concern.
Therefore, disciplinary measures are needed, it said.
At the meeting, the Commission gave a warning to Nguyễn Văn Công, Deputy Minister of Transport; Phạm Viết Muôn, former deputy chief of the Government Office; and Trần Ngọc Thành, former Chairman of the Members’ Council of the Việt Nam Railways Corporation.
Meanwhile, it reprimanded deputy ministers of Transport Nguyễn Ngọc Đông and Nguyễn Nhật, and Nguyễn Ngọc Huệ, former Chairman of the Members’ Council of the Shipping Corporation Vinalines.
It took disciplinary measures against three former officials of Đắk Nông Province. — VNS
