The Ministry of Public Security (MPS)’s units and individuals have received the Party and State’s noble rewards for their outstanding achievements in fighting crimes and ensuring the national security.

The MPS held a ceremony to present the Military Exploits Order, the Exploits Order and the Prime Minister’s Certificate of Merit to its units and individuals in Ho Chi Minh City on April 3.

On behalf of the Party and State, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung granted the Military Exploits Order, first class, to MPS Minister General Le Hong Anh, Deputy Minister Sen. Lieut. Gen. Nguyen Van Huong, and Deputy Minister Lieut. Gen. Bui Van Nam.

One unit and four individuals were awarded the Military Exploit Order, second and third class,. Two units and nine individuals received the Exploits Order while other four units and 26 individuals were granted the PM’s Certificate of Merit.

These awards are to acknowledge and honour the achievements of the MPS units and individuals in ensuring national security and implementing special working plans serving the Party and State’s foreign affairs. One of the highlighted achievements was the C509 case involving the reactionary organisation led by Le Cong Dinh, Tran Huynh Duy Thuc, Le Thang Long and Nguyen Tien Trung.

This was an especially serious case on violation of national security as well as the existence, stability and strong development of the political institution of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, which took place at a time when hostile forces were increasing “peaceful evolution” activities targeting Vietnam .

Speaking at the ceremony, PM Dung affirmed that the police forces have played well their key role in the cause of protecting national security and maintaining social order and safety.

They have a good grasp and form control of the situations and take the initiative in fighting and preventing all “peaceful evolution” schemes and activities, ensuring security in all aspects, he said./.
