A former Vietnamese deputy prime minister is expected to be disciplined for his involvement in the violations during the equitization of some companies under the Ministry of Transport.
The Inspection Commission of the Party Central Committee has concluded that the transport ministry’s Party Committee had seriously violated the principle of centralized democracy and working regulations.
The transport ministry showed serious lack of responsibility, resulting in many wrongdoings in the process of equitization and state capital divestment at several enterprises under the ministry’s management.
Former Minister of Transport Dinh La Thang, who had been expelled from the Party and is serving his time in prison for other offenses, holds the primary responsibility for these violations, the Inspection Commission stated.
His four former deputies are also held accoutable for the offenses.

Vu Van Ninh, former member of the Party Central Committee and former deputy prime minister, committed violations and made mistakes in making decisions regarding the equitization process.
Pham Viet Muon, former deputy chief of the Government Office, committed violations and made mistakes in advising government leaders regarding the process.
The violations of the transport ministry and these ex-officials have caused great losses to the state budget and negatively affected the prestige of the Party organization and the transport sector, the Inspection Commission asserted, requesting suitable disciplinary action for the violators.
