Following an internal inspection, a group of senior Communist Party members were found to be in violation of Party regulations.
The involved individuals were told to "seriously learn from their mistakes."
According to the statement issued on July 5th by the Central Inspection Commission, Party officials at the Quang Ninh People's Committee exerted lax management over provincial coal mining and trading from 2004 to 2008. The lapse led to wide scale coal smuggling that has damaged both the economy and the environment, inspectors said.
Three officials of the Tra Vinh People's Committee and the Tra Vinh Party Unit's Standing Committee were found to have wrongly granted land and home titles. Inspectors also found that the trio had inaccurately declared their assets.
In the Dien Bien Province, inspectors found that four officials had mismanaged the construction of the Dien Bien Phu Victory Monument. Inspectors found that the violations occurred in degrees undeserving of disciplinary measures.
The chairman of the Bac Lieu People's Committee, who also serves as deputy secretary of the town Party Unit, was officially rebuked for financial mismanagement dating back to his time as secretary of the provincial Youth Union. Inspectors also found that he had breached regulations in his current roles.
The Party Central Committee did uncover actions that, they said, will merit discipline. This list included: the general director of Vietnam Television; the director of the Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics; the Secretary of the Tien Giang Party Unit, the Chairman of the Thai Binh People's Committee; the Party unit secretary, the chairman and the general director of Vietnam's National Shipping Lines (VINALINES); the Party unit secretary, the chairman, the general director, and the deputy general director of Vietnam Construction Industry Group; the Party unit secretary (and two deputies), the chairman, the deputy chairman and a member or the Standing Committee of provincial People's Committee of Ca Mau Province.
