Vietnamese official rebuked for promoting daughter against rules

Vietnamese official rebuked for promoting daughter against rules

A finance department chief in north-central Vietnam has been reprimanded for appointing her daughter to a senior position of a division under her management, which breached regulations.

She then had to withdraw her appointment decision following the reprimand.

Bui Van Su, chief of office at Thanh Hoa Province’s Department of Finance, told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper on Monday that departmental director Dinh Cam Van had nullified the appointment.

Van named her daughter, Le Cam Nhung, deputy head of her department’s Business Finance and Economic Development Policy Division on February 2.

Nhung had been working as a specialist at the IT Budget Management and Financial Statistics Division prior to the promotion, which immediately met with public objection.

Many deemed it “questionable,” as it went against previous directions from the chairman of the People’s Committee of Thanh Hoa.

On July 27, 2015, Chairman Nguyen Dinh Xung signed a fiat halting all new recruitments and promotions of deputies within the province. The document is still in effect now.

Special cases must be submitted for approval to the chairman before any appointment is made, according to the document.

The Business Finance and Economic Development Policy Division is suffering from a lack of personnel, according to chief of office Su.

Its head is retiring soon so there is a need to promote new officials for replacements, he added.

The promotion of Nhung seemed to conform to existing procedures, having undergone a confidence vote and internal review, Su said.

However, upon referring to documents issued by the provincial People’s Committee, the director decided to pass a new decision scrapping the promotion on February 5, as it lacked written approval from Chairman Xung.

Nhung would still be working as a specialist at the IT Budget Management and Financial Statistics Division, according to the new decision.

Director Van has admitted her fault and pledged to draw a lesson from that, while taking criticism from the chairman.
