The suspects include Doan Huu Long, 59, former head of Dak Lak Province’s health department, Nguyen Huu Huyen, 55, head of the planning division, Nguyen Dinh Quan, 45, deputy head of the planning division and other officials from the department as well as Ea Kar District’s health centre and Central Highlands General Hospital.
They are accused of lacking responsibility causing serious consequences.
According to investigators, Long, acting as head of the Appraisal Council for drug bidding and other members of the council, have approved the bid not in line with State regulations. The action has caused nearly VND1 billion (US$85,440) in losses to the State Budget.
Further investigation into the incident is underway. VNS
The Security Investigation Agency has proposed prosecuting Dinh La Thang, former Chairman of PetroVietnam on charges of violating regulations on construction works, causing serious consequences at the Petrochemical and Bio-Fuel JSC.
More measures are needed in the fight against trade fraud and illegal cross-border smuggling between Vietnam and other countries, which continues to be a problem, the General Department of Customs has said.
