NDO/VNA – The Government Inspectorate disclosed on April 24 the outcomes of its activities in the first quarter of 2017, noting that it found violations of economic regulations involving over VND41.82 trillion (US$1.84 billion) and 168ha of land.

More than VND4.19 trillion (US$184.4 million) of the sum was uncovered in the banking sector. That excludes nearly VND91.32 trillion (US$4 billion) involved in violations of the State’s regulations on lending, debt classification and credit risk provisions.

Through inspections, the Government Inspectorate proposed over VND8.77 trillion (US$385.96 million) and 80ha of land be reclaimed. It asked competent agencies to deal with the remaining VND33 trillion (US$1.45 billion) and 88ha of land.

The agency proposed imposing administrative punishment on 259 collectives and individuals, issuing 26,331 decisions meting out penalties for administrative violations that involved over VND6.99 trillion (US$307.63 million). It also transferred 21 cases with 47 suspects to investigation agencies.

Regarding corruption prevention, ministries, sectors and localities examined 762 agencies, organisations and units, finding eight of them with transparency-related violations.

In Q1, State administrative agencies handled 4,593, or 58%, of the 7,914 complaint and denunciation cases under their jurisdiction. Meanwhile, ministries, sectors and localities solved 4,581 complaint and denunciation cases under their jurisdiction.

By resolving those cases, VND6.1 billion (US$268,400) and one hectare of land were proposed to be recovered for the State and returned to people. Relevant agencies also restored the interests for 303 people, according to the Government Inspectorate.
