The disciplinary measure was written in the Prime Minister’s Decision No.106/QD-TTg dated January 24.
The same day, the PM signed Decision No. 107/QD-TTg, giving the disciplinary measure of warning against Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Ho Thi Kim Thoa for similar infringements in the field.
In November 2016, the Party Central Committee’s Secretary took disciplinary actions against Hoang, dismissing him from the position as Secretary of the Party Delegation during the time.
According to the conclusions of the Central Committee’s Inspection Commission, Vu Huy Hoang personally showed a lack of good example and had self-interested behaviour when receiving and appointing his son Vu Quang Hai as an inspector of the Vietnam National Tobacco Corporation (Vinataba), and allowing him to join the Board of Directors and take the position of Deputy General Director of the Saigon Beer-Alcohol-Beverage Company (Sabeco).
Hoang also violated the Party Central Committee’s regulations on not-to-dos by Party members, the Law on Corruption Prevention and Control, and the Secretariat’s regulations on officials and Party members’ responsibility for showing good examples.
He did not follow the Party and State law on principles, procedures and criteria in personnel work while incorrectly directing and implementing the working regulations of the Party Delegation in presenting the Hero of Labour title to the PVC and rewarding the third-class Labour Order to Dang Vu Ngoan, rector of the Ho Chi Minh City University of Food Industry.
He also loosened examination of some of the ministry's units, allowing them to break regulations on personnel recruitment, reception, evaluation, and appointment.
He was also found guilty of violating the Party and State’s regulations on reception and appointment of Trinh Xuan Thanh as Deputy Chief of Office and Head of Representative Office of the Ministry in Da Nang, and Chief of Office of the Party Delegation to the Ministry.
Hoang also infringed principles, process, procedures and criteria when it came to personnel appraisal, planning, and approval of deputy minister post for Thanh and several other individuals.
The violations and shortcomings of the Party Delegation to the Ministry of Industry and Trade and Hoang have caused serious consequences, hurting the prestige of the Party, State, the ministry and himself, while sparking grave concern for the public.
