The fight against corruption and other negative phenomena has been stepped up and expanded to new, tough and lingering areas like land, finance, stock markets and bidding since the beginning of this year.
Responding to instructions by Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong, who is also head of the Central Steering Committee for Anti-Corruption, agencies have sped up the settlement of major, complex corruption cases that have caused concern among the public.
Bringing the cases to light has demonstrated the strong resolve of the Party and the State in the fight against corruption which has won the support and trust of the public.
Crackdowns on bidding regulation violations that cause serious consequences, bribery and abuse of power at Viet A Technologies JSC, the Centre for Disease Control in the northern province of Hai Duong, and other agencies and localities have been the focus of public attention recently.
The Standing Board of the Committee has also agreed to put the case under the monitoring of the Committee.
Regarding the serious case, during its 12th and 13th meetings, the Party Central Committee’s Inspection Commission pointed out signs of wrongdoings among the Party delegations to the Ministry of Science and Technology and the Ministry of Health in the 2016-21 tenure, the Standing Board of the Party Committee of the Vietnam Military Medical University in the 2015-20 and 2020-25 terms, and some individuals.
The Party Central Committee’s Secretariat decided to issue warnings against the Standing Board of the Party Committee of the Vietnam Military Medical University and relieved Lieutenant General Do Quyet and Major General Hoang Van Luong from their Party positions in the 2015-20 and 2020-25 tenures.
The wrongdoings by collectives and individuals in the case have been quickly clarified in line with the spirit of the Politburo, as stated in Conclusion No. 12-KL/TW on enhancing the Party leadership in the fight against corruption and other negative phenomena.
The Politburo has requested an acceleration of investigations, completing the handling of such cases, especially those under the management of the Committee, and completely retrieving corrupt assets.
Another corruption scandal that has shaken the stock market took place recently.
The Ministry of Public Security is launching a probe into the acts of “manipulating the stock market,” and “hiding information in securities activities” that cause losses to investors and affect the operations of the domestic stock market.
The case has also been placed under the monitoring of the Central Steering Committee for Anti-Corruption. — Vietnam News/ANN
