The authorities of central Nghe An province have uncovered a number of corruptive cases involving the misappropriation of more than 380 billion VND (17.5 million USD) and 70,700 sq.m. of land since the beginning of 2014.

Relevant agencies admitted that much remains to be done in the fight against corruption in Nghe An, as many measures utilised to tackle the issues proved to be of little effective. In addition, most corruption cases are discovered through inspections or public complaints and no unit was able to detect corruptive acts inside its organisation. Besides, it usually takes a long time for the investigation and trial of corruption cases.

In the coming time, with the aim of rooting out corruption, the province will continue to improve the transparency in the operation of State agencies and emphasise the accountability of heads of organisations and units as well as public servants. T he authorities will also enlist the help of the Vietnam Fatherland Front and other political and social organisations as well as media and the public in the fight against corruption.-VNA
