HÀ NỘI – The Ministry of Public Security announced yesterday that its Investigation Police Agency has launched criminal proceedings against the ministry’s former General Director Trần Việt Tân and former Director Bùi Văn Thành.
They were banned from leaving their places of residence and are being prosecuted for “showing irresponsibility, causing serious consequences” in line with Article 285 of the 1999 Criminal Code.
Their wrongdoings were discovered during the investigation into the case of “abusing position and power while performing duties” involving Phan Văn Anh Vũ and accomplices.
Earlier, the Prime Minister signed a decision dismissing Tân from his post as Deputy Minister of Public Security for the 2011-2016 tenure because of his serious violations and shortcomings in the workplace.
Thành was also stripped of his title as Deputy Minister of Public Security for the same reason. — VNS
