September 08, 2023

HÀ NỘI - Party General Secretary Nguyễn Phú Trọng on Friday chaired a meeting of the Politburo and Party Central Committee (PCC)’s Secretariat to consider disciplinary measures against an official of the Mekong Delta province of Bến Tre and a former official of northern Hà Nam Province. The officials are Lê Đức Thọ, member of the Party Central Committee and Secretary of the Party Committee of Bến Tre; and Phạm Gia Luật, former member of the Party Committee of Hà Nam Province, and former Director of the provincial Department of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs. Luật's wrongdoings caused extremely serious consequences and great losses to the State budget, for which many officials and Party members have been punished, causing public anger and negatively affecting the prestige of the Party Organisation and local State management agencies. Therefore, the Politburo asked the Party Central Committee to impose disciplinary measures on Thọ. At the same time, the Party Central Committee’s Secretariat decided to expel Luật from the Party.
