HÀ NỘI — Hà Nội's Sóc Sơn District authorities have decided to take disciplinary action against 39 officials for violating forest land management and use.

They were among 80 officials involved in the illegal construction of buildings on protection forest land in the district.

In a document signed by Chairman of the district People’s Committee Phạm Văn Minh on Monday, two civil servants were fired.

Two officials from Sóc Sơn District’s Party Standing Committee were dismissed, six were given disciplinary warnings and 29 were reprimanded for their violations.

The leadership team of the district’s People's Committee reviewed the leadership of the tenures of 2006-11, 2011-16, and 2016-21, especially the role of chairmen and vice chairmen.

Based on the statements of the officials, they decided to reprimand Đỗ Minh Tuấn, vice chairman of Sóc Sơn District People's Committee of the 2016-21 tenure.

Sóc Sơn District Party Standing Committee reviewed responsibilities of the leaders of three tenures of 2005-10, 2010-15, and 2015-20 and involved officials of the Hà Nội Party Committee of the three tenures.

The results must be reported to the municipal Party Committee and People's Committee for consideration.

The responsibilities of the Party organisations and Party members involved in the management of forest land in Sóc Sơn in 2008-18 were reviewed. The Standing Committee of the district Party Committee of the three tenures were told to learn lessons from their misdeeds.

The Hà Nội People's Committee’s inspection department has issued disciplinary decisions for officials under the management of the committee.

Vice Chairman Tạ Văn Đạo and Chairman Vương Văn Bút were given disciplinary warnings.

The Sóc Sơn District Party Committee has decided to dismiss Đào Văn Sửu, Secretary of the district’s Party Committee’s Construction Inspection Team in the tenure of 2015-20.

Sửu is a member of the committee and holds the position of deputy director of the Sóc Sơn Temple’s tourist spot and relic management centre.

As many as 19 officials were involved in the violations but were not serious enough to be disciplined. Another 22 officials were not disciplined due to sickness. — VNS
