HCMC – The Politburo and the Secretariat of the Party Central Committee have proposed expelling Duong Van Thai and Mai Tien Dung from the Communist Party of Vietnam over their serious wrongdoing.

At a meeting with the Central Inspection Commission in Hanoi today, May 14, the Politburo reviewed misconduct by Duong Van Thai, a member of the Party Central Committee and Party secretary of Bac Giang Province, and Mai Tien Dung, former chairman of the Government Office and former member of the Party Central Committee.

Both had been found to violate Party rules and State laws on the execution of their assigned duties and tasks, particularly in anti-corruption and anti-negative practices.

Their actions triggered serious consequences and public outrage, and damaged the credibility of the Party, government agencies, and other units.

Earlier this month, former Bac Giang Party Secretary Duong Van Thai was arrested for abuse of power. On April 30, the Ministry of Public Security charged Mai Tien Dung with bribe taking and abuse of power in connection with a case in Lam Dong Province.

In a related move, the Politburo also reprimanded the Party Committee of Vinh Phuc Province for violations in the 2015-2020 term. The committee was found to have breached democratic centralism principles and Party regulations, resulting in financial losses and public dissatisfaction.

These issues continued into the 2020-2025 term, with further governance failures and corruption among officials. The Politburo issued warnings to the committee for both terms.

The Politburo proposed the Party Central Committee take disciplinary action against Le Thanh Hai, former secretary of the HCMC Party Committee, while issuing warnings against Le Hoang Quan and Nguyen Thanh Phong, former chairpersons of the HCMC People’s Committee.

The Politburo said their 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.
