Hanoi (VNA) – Phan Thi My Thanh, head of the National Assembly (NA) deputy delegation of the southern province of Dong Nai, has submitted an application for resignation from her position as NA deputy due to health reason, NA Secretary General Nguyen Hanh Phuc said on May 9.

Phuc said that Thanh’s application for resignation from the post will be reported to the NA and NA Standing Committee for settlement in line with the law.

On May 4, the Secretariat of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Central Committee held a meeting to consider the proposal of the CPV Central Committee’s Inspection Commission to apply disciplinary measures against Thanh, who is Deputy Secretary of the provincial Party Committee of Dong Nai and head of the province’s NA deputy delegation.

The Secretariat said that violations and wrongdoings of Thanh were very serious, caused discontent among officials, Party members and local people, and negatively affected the prestige of the local Party organisation and herself.

The Secretariat decided to dismiss Thanh from all of her Party positions, while proposing the Party civil affairs delegation of the NA consider removing Thanh from her position of National Assembly deputy.

The Secretariat concluded that while serving as Director of the Department of Industry of Dong Nai province from 2003 to January 2009, Thanh lacked responsibility while performing her duties. She did not direct the construction of infrastructure of the Thong Nhat textile factory’s condominium although money had been collected from households. She also agreed to let the Department of Industry send the remaining money of the project to the Tan Mai Wood Company.

After assuming another post, Thanh was said to have not handed over the project to her successor, leading to prolonged mass complaints, affecting the local security and order situation, causing serious consequences, and undermining State management agencies’ prestige.

Meanwhile, while working as Vice Chairwoman of the provincial Dong Nai People’s Committee from June 2011 to September 2014, Thanh signed many documents of the provincial People’s Committee but did not refer to advices of specialised departments and sectors, which violated laws and the work regulations of the provincial People’s Committee.

According to the Secretariat, Thanh broke the democratic centralism principle when she signed Decision 2230/QD-UBND, dated July 21, 2014, of the provincial People’s Committee to approve investment in the Dong Nai River encroachment project without reporting to and collecting opinions from ministries and centrally-run sectors.

She also signed some decisions of the provincial People’s Committee that gave favourable conditions to her family’s business to carry out some projects in the fields that she was in charge of. Thanh was also found to have given wrong reports on the projects’ workload and progress with a view to seeking profit for her family’s business.

Thanh seriously infringed regulations on external affairs and used her diplomatic passport to go abroad with personal purposes for many times. She also used to go abroad without reporting to her agency as regulated.-VNA
