Official disciplined over plan for waste dumping into sea

The Saigon Times Daily

HCMC - The Ministry of Industry and Trade has told the Industrial Policy and Strategy Institute to take disciplinary measures against Ha Quoc Quan, director of the institute’s Center for Investment and Technology Transfer Consultancy, for his involvement in a controversial plan to dump around one million tons of dredged sediments into the sea.

According to local media reports, the institute, a unit of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, has suspended Quan for 15 days after the ministry had worked with the institute to look into information about conflict of interests. Quan is holding the post of director of the Center for Investment and Technology Transfer Consultancy but he is also serving as general director of Vietnam Ports Construction Consultant JS Company.

This is in violation of Article 37 of the amended Anti-Corruption Law and the Law on Civil Servants, which ban civil servants from running businesses.

The Center for Investment and Technology Transfer Consultancy served as a consultant for a plan for dumping around one million cubic meters of mud, sand, shells and other sediments dredged from a turning basin of Vinh Tan 1 thermo-power station in Binh Thuan Province. But later the plan was transferred to Quan’s company.
