HÀ NỘI — Police has launched legal action against Trần Văn Nam, former Secretary of the Party Committee and former Vice Chairman of the People’s Committee of southern Bình Dương Province, over allegations of wrongdoings.
Nam is accused of “violating regulations on the management and use of State assets, which causes loss and wastefulness” under Article 219 of the 2015 Penal Code.
He is alleged to be linked with the case at the Bình Dương Producing and Trading Corporation. This case is currently under the investigation of the Central Steering Committee for Anti-Corruption.
Earlier this month, the Party Central Committee decided to dismiss Nam, who was then member of the Party Central Committee, Secretary of the provincial Party Committee, and head of the 14th National Assembly deputies’ delegation of Bình Dương, from all of his Party positions in the 2010 - 2015, 2015 - 2020, and 2020 - 2025 tenures.
The National Election Council also rejected him as a deputy of the 15th National Assembly as initial findings showed infringements of regulation on items Party members must steer clear of and evidence of law breaking, causing serious consequences.
In June, the police also launched legal action against former Chairman of the Bình Dương People’s Committee Trần Thanh Liêm, five officials of the province, and four others who are incumbent or former executives of different companies for their involvement in this case. — VNS
