HCMC – Le Thanh Hai, former member of the Politburo and former secretary of the HCMC Party Committee, is among three former leaders of HCMC to face disciplinary measures following a working session of the Central Inspection Commission.

After its 41st meeting from May 6 to 7, the Inspection Commission of the Party Central Committee said this afternoon, May 8, that the Party Civil Affairs Committee of the HCMC People’s Committee during the previous tenures had violated democratic centralism principles and working regulations.

In addition, the lack of responsibility and the slack leadership of the Party Civil Affairs Committee led to the HCMC People’s Committee, multiple organizations and individuals seriously violating Party rules and State laws on land management and use, financial management, assets management, investment, planning, and construction in the projects undertaken by Van Thinh Phat Group and Advanced International Joint Stock Company (AIC Group).

The violations resulted in very serious consequences, posing a significant risk of losing and wasting State funds and assets, and resources in society, impacting the reputation of the Party organization and the city’s government.

The primary responsibility for those violations and shortcomings rests with the Standing Committee of the HCMC Party Committee in the 2010-2015 term and the Party Civil Affairs Committee of the HCMC People’s Committee for two terms, 2011-2016 and 2016-2021.

Le Thanh Hai, former Politburo member, former secretary of the HCMC Party Committee, and former chairman of the HCMC People’s Committee, is held accountable.

Two other leaders are also held accountable for those violations, namely former chairpersons of the HCMC People’s Committee Le Hoang Quan and Nguyen Thanh Phong.

Quan and Phong committed their violations while they were serving as members of the Party Central Committee, deputy secretaries of the HCMC Party Committee, and secretaries of the Party Civil Affairs Committee of the HCMC People’s Committee.

The Central Inspection Commission issued a warning to the Party Civil Affairs Committee of the People’s Committee of HCMC for the 2011-2016 and 2016-2021 terms; the Party Committees of the Department of Finance, and the Department of Planning and Investment for the 2015-2020 term; and the Construction Department, and the Natural Resources and Environment Department for the 2010-2015 term.

The Inspection Commission proposed that higher Party authorities review and take disciplinary actions against the Standing Committee of the 2010-2015 HCMC Party Committee, as well as against Le Thanh Hai, Le Hoang Quan, and Nguyen Thanh Phong.
