Hanoi (VNA) – The Central Committee’s Inspection Commission has proposed types of discipline to the Party Delegation to the Ministry of Industry and Trade in the 2011-2016 tenure and former Minister Vu Huy Hoang for violations related to personnel reception, transfer and appointment.

During its seventh meeting from October 17-21, the commission found that the Party Delegation to the Ministry of Industry did not make timely adjustments and supplementations to its operation regulations in line with the Politburo guidelines, while triggering the principle of democratic centralism during its operation.

The commission concluded that the Party Delegation was irresponsible and slackened during its leadership and direction, violating a number of Party and State’s regulations on personnel.

Specifically, the Party Delegation received, transferred and appointed Trinh Xuan Thanh and some other officials without following the rules, procedures as well as criteria and conditions.

It violated the Ministry of Home Affairs’ Decision 83/2004/QD-BNV and Decision 81-QD/BCS of the Party Delegation to the Ministry of Industry by appointing Trinh Xuan Thanh as Deputy Chief of Office and Head of Representative Office of the Ministry in Da Nang, and Chief of Office of the Party Delegation to the Ministry.

It infringed the regulations and procedures of evaluation and planning of officials in some cases, while allowing Vu Huy Hoang, the then Minister of Industry and Trade and Secretary of the Party Delegation to the Ministry, to approve the adding of Trinh Xuan Thanh and some other officials to the planning for the position of deputy minister of Industry and Trade, at his own initiative.

The Party Delegation to the Ministry of Industry also went against the Law on Corruption Prevention and Control and the Law of Enterprises, as it employed Vu Quang Hai, the son of Vu Huy Hoang, as inspector of the Vietnam National Tobacco Corporation (Vinataba), and transferred him to the Saigon Beer-Alcohol-Beverage Company (Sabeco), while suggesting the adding of Hai to Sabeco’s Board of Directors and appointment of him as Deputy General Director of the company.

It lacked of responsibility and violated the law in emulation-awarding in verifying and proposing the presentation of the Hero of Labour title to the PetroVietnam Construction Corporation, the commission said.

Former Politburo member and former Minister of Industry and Trade Vu Huy Hoang will be responsible for violations and flaws committed by the Party Delegation to the Ministry of Industry and Trade for 2011-2016.

He personally showed a lack of good example and self-interested behaviour in terms of appointing his son as inspector of Vinataba, allowing him to join the Board of Directors and take the position of Deputy General Director of Sabecco. Hoang also violated the Party Central Committee’s regulations on not-to-dos by Party members, the Law on Corruption Prevention and Control, and the Secretariat’s regulations on officials and Party members’ responsibility for showing good examples.

He was also found guilty of improperly following the Party and State’s regulations on reception and appointment of Trinh Xuan Thanh as Deputy Chief of Office and Head of Representative Office of the Ministry in Da Nang, and Chief of Office of the Party Delegation to the Ministry.

Albeit learning of Thanh’s violations and ineligibility, he still agreed with the Party Committee of Hau Giang province’s proposal to move Thanh to work in Hau Giang for the appointment of him as Vice Chairman of the provincial Party Committee for 2011-2016. Hoang asked the provincial Party Committee to make it easier for Thanh to join its standing committee, which was not under his authority. Before that, the former minister made dishonest reports about PVC’s activities and Thanh.

Hoang also infringed principles, process, procedures and criteria when it came to personnel appraisal, planning, and approval of deputy minister post for Thanh and several other individuals.

Above violations and shortcomings by the Party Delegation to the Ministry of Industry and Trade and former minister Hoang have caused serious consequences, hurt the prestige of the Party, State, the ministry and himself, as well as worried the public.

The Party Central Committee’s Inspection Commission asked the Secretariat to discipline Hoang and the Party Delegation to the Ministry of Industry and Trade by the form of warning and reprimand.

Dao Van Hai, former Director of the ministry’s Personnel Department and former member of the Party Delegation to the Ministry of Industry and Trade, was responsible for violations and flaws committed by the committee for 2011-2016, as well as in offering suggestion to the committee about the personnel appointment, appraisal and deployment against the Party and State’s regulations.

Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Ho Thi Kim Thoa also committed to above violations.

Both of them will receive warning and reprimand.-VNA
