violations in specific cases including violations in the medical field or those relating to land management, State property management and use in Bình Duong, Khanh Hoa and HCM City.
He also mentioned the case of “Giving bribes, accepting bribes; Smuggling, manufacturing and trading in fake goods”, which occurred in Đong Nai and other provinces and cities as well as the case at several units under the Command of the Coast Guard and Border Guard.
He asked for first-instance trials for major cases including “Violations on construction investment, causing serious consequences” at the Da Nang – Quang Ngai Expressway Project; “Violations on bidding, causing serious consequences” at Hanoi Department of Planning and Investment; and the “Violation on management and use of State assets, causing loss and waste, property embezzlement, lack of responsibility causing serious consequences” at Sai Gon Agriculture Corporation.
At the meeting, the Standing Committee of the committee agreed to oversee the handling of negative behaviour of officials and party members involved in several cases.
Trọng, who is head of the Central Steering Committee for Corruption and Negative Phenomena Prevention and Control, said that in its name, the committee had the additional task of preventing and controlling negative phenomena.
The Central Steering Committee for Corruption Prevention and Control was renamed the Central Steering Committee for Corruption and Negative Phenomena Prevention and Control in September this year.
“Negative phenomena has a very general meaning but here, it is mostly about the degradation of political thought, morality and lifestyle among officials, Party members, civil servants, leaders, and managers of all-level organisations in the political system throughout the country. Those are the root of corruption,” he said.
“Without the degradation, there is no corruption. With good morality, there is no corruption,” he said. The Party leader said that it was necessary to create a new spirit and new determination in the fight against corruption and negativity; resolutely prevent, detect and strictly handle corrupt and negative acts, particularly the deterioration in political ideology, morality, and lifestyle among cadres, party members, State officials and civil servants.
He said that as an agency preventing and combating corruption and negativity, the members of the Central Steering Committee for Corruption and Negative Phenomena Prevention and Control must be truly exemplary, like “the sword and shield”.
