Hoang Tien Duc, member of the provincial Party Committee of Son La in 2015-2020 term, secretary of the Party Committee (2015-2020 term) and Director of Son La’s Department of Education and Training,
was stripped of all his Party positions for his violations of rules in organising the senior high school examination in 2018 in Son La.
The Secretariat said in his capacity as standing deputy chairman of the steering committee for the senior high school examination in 2018 and chairman of the exam council, Duc was responsible for advising the provincial People’s Committee in selecting two officials who had children sit in the exam for the steering committee for the senior high school examination, which was a violation of exam regulations.
He was also blamed for the lack of monitoring and inspection during the exam, resulting in the serious violations of exam regulations, with some involved officials prosecuted.
Duc has admitted to his rule violations and mistakes. Functional agencies were of the view that his violations are serious, negatively affecting the prestige of the local Party organisation, authorities, educational sector and himself, and causing resentment in society to the level that requires the imposition of Party disciplinary measures.
The other disciplined official was Vice Admiral Nguyen Van Tinh, who must bear a leader’s responsibility for serious violations and mistakes of the standing board of the Party Committee of the Vietnam People’s Navy during the 2005-2020 term during the time he served as member of the Party Central Committee, member of the Central Military Commission, Secretary of the Party Committee of the naval force (from November 2005 to January 2008) and Political Commissar of the force.
Specifically, the standing board of the Party Committee of the Vietnam People’s Navy during the 2005-2020 term violated the principle of centralised democracy and working regulations as well as the
jurisdiction and laws on land management, and slackened leadership, direction, inspection and supervision.
Functional agencies concluded that the Vice Admiral’s mistakes were serious, negatively affecting the prestige of the Party organisation, the military and himself.
Therefore, the Party Central Committee’s Secretariat decided to give him a warning as a disciplinary measure.-VNA
