HCM City Party Secretary: robbery must not exist on streets
On the afternoon of November 30, the 19th Conference of the 2020-2025 term ended after a working day.
In addition to issues related to the socio-economic developments after the pandemic, Nen drew special attention to the work of ensuring social order and security.
At the recent HCM City Party Committee conference, Nen asked related agencies to focus on ensuring political security and social order, reducing all kinds of crimes, especially criminal, drug, and robbery on streets.
“We have a bad reputation about this, especially robbery. Someone took out his mobile phone from his pocket and spoke some words when suddenly the phone was taken away. A family had to borrow money to bring a relative of theirs to hospital, but they lost all their money because of burglars. People from many localities hear that HCM City is a civilized city and therefore they lack vigilance. As a result, they lose money and wallets. Robbery in the open air is unacceptable. It is necessary to heavily deter this kind of criminal,” Nen said.
HCM City needs to strengthen suppression of high-tech crimes, online fraud, and crimes against children; strengthen supervision of policies and laws on prevention and control of domestic and child violence; and strengthen fire and explosion prevention and control, especially when Tet nears, he added.
The official said it was necessary to prevent, stop and heavily sanction cadres and Party members who have degraded political ideology and lifestyles.
The Party Committee Secretary also requested committees and branches to accelerate the construction pace, and put into use key infrastructure projects, especially railway No 1 (Ben Thanh - Suoi Tien), the project on solving high tide; the railway project No 2 (Ben Thanh - Tham Luong)
