HCMC – The Party Central Committee’s Secretariat has removed two senior executives of the Vietnam Military Medical Academy from all their Party posts for their involvement in the Viet A Technology Corporation’s price gouging of Covid-19 test kits.
The Secretariat’s measure against Lieutenant General Do Quyet, director of the Vietnam Military Medical Academy, and Major General Hoang Van Luong, deputy director of the academy, came after the Party Central Committee’s Inspection Commission recommended taking action against their wrongdoing in the case.
The Secretariat concluded that the standing board of the academy’s Party Committee in the 2015-2020 and 2020-2025 tenures showed a lack of responsibility, slack leadership and poor supervision.
The board was also found to let some leaders of the academy, employees and Party members violate the Party’s rules and State regulations on the proposal and approval for research and development of Covid-19 test kits and purchase kits.
As the leaders of the academy, Quyet, deputy secretary of the Party Committee, and Luong, a member of the standing board of the Party Committee, must take responsibility for these irregularities, which have caused serious consequences and losses for the State, the local media reported.
