HÀ NỘI — The Party Central Committee’s Inspection Commission meted out disciplinary measures against numerous officials during its 11th session in Hà Nội on January 12-13.

The commission reprimanded the Party delegation of the Cần Thơ municipal People’s Committee for 2016-2021 and several incumbent and former officials including Nguyễn Văn Hồng, member of the municipal Party Committee and vice chairman of the municipal People’s Committee.

The commission gave a warning to the standing board of the Party Committee of the Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu border guard force in the 2015-2020 and 2020-2025 tenures, as well as to Commander Lt Colonel Nguyễn Hùng Sơn, Party Secretary and Political Commissar Colonel Đinh Quốc Tuấn, and Deputy Commander Colonel Nguyễn Văn Tiến.
Several other high-ranking officers were also given warnings.
