During a meeting of the Party Central Committee’s Secretariat on May 25 under the chair of Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong, Tai was removed from all Party posts during the 2015-2020 and 2020-2025 tenures.
The Secretariat said that while serving as member of the standing board of the Bac Lieu provincial Party Committee, Vice Secretary of the Party Committee and Commander of the provincial Military Command of Bac Lieu, Tai flouted the principle of democratic centralism and the working regulations of the Party Committee of the provincial Military Command, and showed a lack of responsibility and lax management, instruction, inspection, and supervision.
His deeds resulted in violations of laws and regulations of the Ministry of National Defence regarding leadership and instruction in training and drills, as well as the illegal use of budget funds.
He had also to bear responsibility for violations and wrongdoings committed by the Standing Board of the provincial Military Command’s Party Committee in the 2015-2020 tenure.
The Secretariat said Tai’s violations are serious and affect the prestige of the Party organisation and the Vietnam People’s Army, and sparked public concern.
Tai has admitted to his wrongdoings and worked to deal with the consequences.
The Secretariat of the Party Central Committee decided on May 25 to dismiss a high-ranking military officer from all Party posts over his wrongdoings.
