HCMC – The Standing Board of the HCMC Party Committee has imposed disciplinary measures against eight Party members in the city for their violations in major cases.
In a case involving violating regulations on the management and use of State assets, causing losses and wastefulness at 8-12 Le Duan Street in District 1 and a case of irresponsibility causing serious consequences involving businesswoman Duong Thi Bach Diep, director of Diep Bach Duong Real Estate Co., Ltd., three Party members were expelled from the Party, the local media reported.
They were Tran Nam Trang, former deputy director of the municipal Department of Finance; Huynh Kim Phat, former deputy head of the HCMC government’s office; and Nguyen Thanh Nhan, former deputy director of the municipal Department of Natural Resources and Environment.
Trang was found to have shown a lack of responsibility in checking, detecting and preventing violations in the case at 8-12 Le Duan Street.
Trang and Phat had also proposed the city approve the exchange of a land lot at 57 Cao Thang Street, District 3, for the 185 Hai Ba Trung location, facilitating Duong Thi Bach Diep to appropriate State assets, causing serious consequences.
Meanwhile, Nhan failed to direct the review of the legality of the land lot at 57 Cao Thang Street, so he did not detect that the land lot had been mortgaged for loans, causing losses for the State.
As for the case at the Saigon Agriculture Incorporated (Sagri), the Standing Board of the HCMC Party Committee dismissed Nguyen Thanh Nhut, deputy director of Saigon Zoo Co., Ltd, from the title of former deputy secretary of Sagri’s Party Committee in the 2015-2020 tenure. Nhut was found to have approved a plan for overseas study trips for Sagri employees, causing losses for Sagri.
In a case that involved seven schools in Cu Chi District, Le Thi Thanh Tuyen, former head of the district’s finance-planning division, and Nguyen Thi Loan, former head of the district’s education and training division, were expelled from the Party.
According to the standing board of the municipal Party Committee, Tuyen and Loan violated regulations on investment, bidding and construction at seven schools in Cu Chi, causing losses to the State budget.
In addition, Huynh Thi Tuyet Nhung, former chairwoman of the member council of the Service Company to Foreign Missions, was ousted from the Party for her involvement in a case of embezzling assets and showing a lack of responsibility at the Service Company to Foreign Missions.
Nhung had signed documents without checking and comparing them with the relevant dossiers and documents, causing losses for the company.
Nguyen Thanh Tuan, head of the Board for Propaganda and Education of the Party Committee of District 11, faced the same fate as Nhung as he had abused his position and power to allow people ineligible for the Covid-19 vaccination to get vaccine doses at a vaccination site at kindergarten No. 10 in District 11’s Ward 10.
Tuan had also created conditions for unassigned people to organize the Covid-19 vaccination and collect fees from residents, going against the State’s policies of providing the vaccines at no charge.
