HÀ NỘI — Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc has warned former member of the Party Central Committee and former Deputy Prime Minister Vũ Văn Ninh for his violations while holding different positions.
In July, the Politburo held a meeting to consider disciplinary measures against Ninh following a proposal of the Party Central Committee’s Inspection Commission.
The Politburo said in the post of Deputy Prime Minister, Vũ Văn Ninh committed violations 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 Agribank Financial Leasing Company No 2. Many officials and Party members involved in the case have been punished.
Ninh’s violations were “serious” and affected the prestige of the Party organisation and himself, said the Politburo.
Ninh acknowledged his personal responsibility for the violations and wrongdoings. — VNS
