Lieutenant General Nguyen Van Son, commander of the Vietnam Coast Guard, has been relieved of his position due to serious violations and shortcomings.

The dismissal was based on the decision of Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh, the Vietnam Government Portal reported.

The premier also decided that Son would be replaced by Major General Le Quang Dao, vice-commander and chief of staff of the Border Guard High Command.

Earlier this month, the Secretariat of the Party Central Committee had removed Son from the position as deputy secretary of the Coast Guard Party Committee.

The Secretariat stated that the oversight of the Standing Party Committee of the Vietnam Coast Guard had let its units commit serious violations, causing serious consequences during the 2015-20 period.

Similar disciplinary actions have also been imposed on four other high-ranking officials in the Vietnam Coast Guard, namely Major General Pham Kim Hau, Major General Tran Van Nam, Colonel Nguyen Van Hung, and Major General Doan Bao Quyet.

The prime minister has appointed new personnel to replace these officials.
