The Prime Minister on July 20 issued two decisions to dismiss deputy head of the Government Office, Nguyen Van Lam, and suspend deputy chief of the Government Inspectorate, Tran Quoc Truong, from work.
Mr. Lam had earlier received gifts in cash during his working trips. PM Nguyen Tan Dung approved Lam’s resignation in early July.
Meanwhile, Mr. Truong was suspended while police are investigating his wrongdoings when he was in charge of inspection on PetroVietnam.
