NDO/VNA - The Secretariat has decided to issue a warning as a disciplinary measure against the Party Civil Affairs Committee of the Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) of the 2011-2016 tenure.

The discipline was imposed for its violation concerning Mobifone’s purchase of 95% of the shares of the pay TV service AVG.

The decision was made during the Secretariat’s meeting in Hanoi on July 10 which was chaired by General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong.

According to the Secretariat, the MIC’s Party Civil Affairs Committee did not seriously obey the principles of the Party’s operations; violated the principle of democratic centralism and working regulations; showed a lack of responsibility and relaxed its leadership, management, inspection, and monitoring.

These wrongdoings, the Secretariat said, resulted in the MIC and the MobiFone seriously infringing upon legal regulations, resulting in huge losses to the State assets.

The Secretariat also found that Tran Viet Thang, Deputy Secretary of the Party Committee of the Vietnam Cement Industry Corporation (VCIC), committed many violations while General Director of VCIC, and Chairman of the Board of Directors and General Director of Ha Tien 1 Cement JSC.

The Secretariat decided to relieve Thang from the posts of member of the Executive Committee of the Centrally-run Businesses Bloc’s Party Organisation and member of the Executive Committee of the VCIC’s Party Organisation.
