NA: Few graft cases found in provinces, ministries

Dao Loan

HCMC – Few graft cases involving provinces and ministries have been unearthed, according to a report by the National Assembly (NA).

The graft cases that have been brought to light mainly involve officials at communal or district level and those of State-owned corporations. 

Presenting the report on the Government’s anti-graft drive at the question-and-answer session on November 6, Le Thi Nga, head of the NA’s Legislation Committee, said corruption is happening at provincial and ministerial levels but few cases have been brought to justice.

Just a number of corruption cases have been found at ministries and agencies that have authority to allocate investment and financial resources, and license exploitation of natural resources. In provinces with many major public investment projects, natural resource mining activities and national target programs, a few graft cases have been handled.

According to Nga, a lack of determination has made it hard to hold corrupt officials accountable. At some agencies, corruption has been uncovered based on accusations or internal conflicts.

Questions concerning group interests were also raised at the Q&A session. In particular, voters have remained doubtful and the recent major graft cases and inspection results of the Party Central Committee’s Inspection Commission have proven the prevalence of corruption.

“This year the Government should focus on fighting corruption and group interests,” Nga added. 

In addition to the anti-graft report of the NA, Supreme People’s Procuracy chief Nguyen Hoa Binh, chief judge of the Supreme People’s Court Le Minh Tri, Minister of Public Security To Lam, and Government inspector general Le Minh Khai on November 6 presented the annual reports prepared by their agencies.
