HCMC – Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh has reprimanded Chairman Le Trung Chinh and Permanent Vice Chairman Ho Ky Minh of the People’s Committee of Danang City for their shortcomings while on duty.
PM Chinh has also taken disciplinary actions against many other former and incumbent officials of this central coastal city, according to the Government leader’s disciplinary decision issued yesterday, December 14.
Among them, the municipal government’s former chairman Huynh Duc Tho and former vice chairman Tran Van Mien were reprimanded, while Ngo Thi Kim Yen, vice chairwoman of the city, received a warning.
The disciplinary measures against these individuals took effect from October 26 this year, news site vnexpress.vn reported.
In October, the Party Central Committee’s Inspection Commission reprimanded Le Trung Chinh, Huynh Duc Tho, Ho Ky Minh, Tran Van Mien and Nguyen Van Phung, director of the municipal Department of Finance.
Meanwhile, Ngo Thi Kim Yen, a former director of the municipal Department of Health, received a warning. Ton That Thanh, director of the Danang Center for Disease Control, was stripped of all his Party posts.
The Inspection Commission said that the Party civil affairs board of the Danang People’s Committee had infringed working regulations, showed dereliction of duty and slack leadership, resulting in the municipal People’s Committee and some organizations and individuals violating the Party’s regulations and the State’s laws in purchasing, managing and using biological products, chemicals and medical supplies to serve the Covid fight.
Their violations and shortcomings posed a threat of causing substantial losses to the State budget and provoking public concern, thereby affecting the prestige of the municipal Party Committee and government, the Inspection Commission said.
