How was Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong wrong in land management in Hanoi?

On March 18, the Hanoi City Inspectorate published the conclusion of the violation in a public service, office and housing project in Tay Mo ward, Nam Tu Liem district and proposed a series of disciplinary measures for local officials including Mr. Nguyen Van Suu – Vice Chairman of Hanoi People’s Committee.

Mr. Nguyen Van Suu, former director of Department of Planning and Investment, currently holding the position of Standing Vice Chairman of Hanoi People’s Committee is requested to be reviewed for wrongdoing related to Dream Town project in Tay Mo ward, Nam Tu. Liem, Hanoi.

The Hanoi Inspectorate has just released a conclusion on the Violation at the Public Service, Office and Housing Project (trade name is Dream Town) in Tay Mo ward, Nam Tu Liem district. The project is invested by Dai Mo Construction Mechanical Joint Stock Company (Coma 6 Company).

According to the conclusion of the Inspectorate, during the implementation of the project, Coma 6 Company and a number of other agencies have committed many mistakes.
Accordingly, Coma 6 Company has used 37,238,6m2 of land in Tay Mo commune, Tu Liem district since 1966 for mechanical production.

In 2008, Coma 6 Company set up a project and asked the Hanoi People’s Committee to license the conversion of the purpose of using 37 thousand m2 of land owned by this company. By 2009, the City People’s Committee officially allowed Coma 6 to study and prepare the project, with an initial total investment of nearly VND283 billion.

Inspection conclusions show that the 2008 financial report (unaudited) recorded that, as of December 31, 2008, the equity capital of Coma 6 was VND24 billion, did not meet 20% of the project’s total investment.

Although the Department of Finance has asked the company to carry out the procedures to supplement the charter capital and increase the owner’s equity in accordance with the current regulations, but the Department of Planning and Investment did not require this company to supplement charter capital and increase equity, but still issued Document No. 1148 on November 26, 2009 to report to Hanoi People’s Committee for permission to allow Coma 6 to study and prepare the project implementation. This document was signed by Mr. Nguyen Van Suu, then director of Department of Planning and Investment.
According to the inspection conclusion, the responsibility in the above incident belongs to the Department of Planning and Investment under the management of Deputy Director Mr. Nguyen Van Tu and Director Nguyen Van Suu who signed the document at the proposal of specialized departments without any inspection.

The Inspectorate concluded that this is contrary to the provisions of Clause 3, Article 6 of Decision No. 22/2007 of February 9, 2007 of the Hanoi People’s Committee, which stipulates that “Department of Planning and Investment is the agency that considers submission. The City People’s Committee approves or refuses to approve for investors to research and prepare investment projects.

Not only that, this is also contrary to the provisions of Point a, Clause 3, Article 22 of the City People’s Committee’s Decision No. 15/2007 of January 23, 2007, which specifies “Verification content: Financial capacity of Investor: equity (not less than 20% of the total investment of the project proposed by the investor), the ability to raise capital of the investor to comply with the project’s schedule.”

The Inspectorate said that in 2010, when preparing an application for an Investment Certificate, the project had a total investment of more than VND1,186 billion. Meanwhile, the equity capital of Coma 6 is only VND13.6 billion (according to the audited financial statements of 2009), equaling 1.1% of the total investment. As a rule, this capital is not sufficient financial capacity.

However, Deputy Director of Hanoi Department of Planning and Investment, then Mr. Nguyen Van Tu, still signed Document No. 430 to report to the City People’s Committee for approval of the project investment certificate. This is also not strictly implemented.
Mr. Nguyen Van Tu is the Chief of the City Party Committee Office. In December 2019, Mr. Tu was detained for violations related to Nhat Cuong Group case.
Thus, only in the first quarter of 2020, this is the second senior officer of Hanoi capital to be put into the furnace by General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong. On January 10, 2020, just before the Lunar New Year holiday, the Politburo disciplined a warning to Mr. Hoang Trung Hai, member of the Politburo, Secretary of the Hanoi party Committee, and former deputy prime minister.

Mr. Hoang Trung Hai, member of the Politburo, former secretary of the Hanoi l Party Committee, former deputy prime minister

On January 10, at the headquarters of the Party Central Committee, General Secretary cum President Nguyen Phu Trong chaired a conference of the Politburo considering and disciplining Mr. Hoang Trung Hai, member of the Politburo, and secretary of theHanoi Party Committee. Hai was a former prime minister.

Specifically, according to the Politburo, the highest authority in the system in Vietnam today, then:

During the time of being a member of the Party Personnel Committee, Deputy Prime Minister, Mr. Hoang Trung Hai had serious violations and shortcomings in the process of directing the implementation of the Phase II production expansion project. – Thai Nguyen Iron and Steel Company (Project TISCO II), causing a loss of about VND 8 trillion. “
Notice of the Central Party Office stated: “Violations and defects of Mr. Hoang Trung Hai are serious, causing annoyance in society, adversely affecting the reputation of party organizations and individuals“.

The violations of Mr. Hoang Trung Hai were first mentioned on December 9, 2019, causing domestic opinion to monitor and wonder about the degree of discipline and Hoang’s political career. Where Hai will go?

The warning level imposed on Mr. Hoang Trung Hai is considered to be ‘raise high lightly.’ According to the Labor Law, warning is the lightest form, the lowest of 7 forms of warning. According to the Statute of the Communist Party of Vietnam, there are 4 levels of discipline: the first is criticism, the second is reprimand, the third is the warning, the fourth is expulsion. Criticism does not record the resume but from reprimand, warning to exclusion, it will have to record the resume and will have administrative consequences of the State rather than just party discipline.

The incineration of General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong is considered to be unfair, to no place and to eliminate the root of corruption – it is the one-party institution that leads to dictatorship and monopoly of the Communist Party of Vietnam.

If the case of Mr. Dinh La Thang, once Politburo member and Secretary of Ho Chi Minh City Party Committee, is criminally prosecuted and sentenced to a heavy sentence of 30 years in prison for deliberately unlawful of the State on economic management, causing serious consequences in the case of PetroVietnam (PVN) contributing capital to the Ocean Bank (OceanBank) and the construction of Thai Binh 2 Thermal Power Plant.

Or in the AVG case, Mobifone caused a budget loss of about VND7 trillion, leaving two former ministers of Information and Communications, Nguyen Bac Son, to life imprisonment and Truong Minh Tuan to 14 years in prison.

Particularly for the Phase 2 project of expanding Thai Nguyen Iron and Steel Plant alone, the loss of VND8 trillion was more than the AVG case that Hoang Trung Hai was only disciplined.

Moreover, according to journalist Vo Van Tao, Hoang Trung Hai’s crimes as Deputy Prime Minister in charge of industry not only stopped at Thai Nguyen Iron and Steel Factory but also related to 11 other projects and until now. As a result, every project has lost trillions to tens of thousands of billions.

Journalist Pham Thanh further analyzed: “Hoang Trung Hai’s crimes were not only Thai Nguyen Iron and Steel but the whole Chinese thermal power system brought to Vietnam when Hoang Trung Hai was still the Deputy Prime Minister. Taking those wastes back, China should have lost the money to rent the yard to waste, but Hoang Trung Hai, who took them home, had to pay to China. “
General Secretary and President Nguyen Phu Trong, the author of the furnace-burning campaign to bring new life to the political atmosphere in Vietnam, was also said to have made many mistakes when he was the Secretary of the Hanoi Party Committee.

As a reminder, General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong, also a member of the Hanoi Party Committee, was also involved in the violations of VND3 trillion in the project of Nam Thang Long New Urban Area (Ciputra Hanoi International City) in 2002. This was the largest foreign-invested real estate project in Vietnam at the time, with a total registered investment capital of $2.11 billion invested by Ciputra Group (Indonesia).

It was to help Ciputra Group (Indonesia) evade the impending tax rate from the beginning of 2005, when Mr. Hoang Van Nghien – former chairman of City People’s Committee and City Party Committee Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong agreed to give priority to Ciputra to pay taxes at a “special rate.” The decision of Mr. Nghien and Mr. Trong “helped” Ciputra bring super profits to investors and there were rumors that the investor may have bribed the key officials of Hanoi at that time millions of dollars.

However, until more than 1 year later, the application for the red book of thousands of villas in the Nam Thang Long urban area (Ciputra) was hindered due to a serious tax imposition. This led the City Interdisciplinary including the Department of Finance, Department of Natural Resources and Environment and Hanoi Tax Department to force to come to a decision to request the City People’s Committee. Hanoi additionally collected VND1.4 trillion dong of land use for Ciputra project of the more than VND3 trillion dong lost.
Not only is it directly related to the mistake at the Nam Thang Long Ciputra New Urban Area project, Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong also has a certain role in the “slaughtering” of protective forests in Soc Son, which caused a stir in the public opinion. over the years.

Soc Son protection forest is butchered by the specialties to which Nguyen Phu Trong is jointly responsible

The case of singer My Linh and Việt Phủ residental area of artist Thanh Chuong built on protective forests has caused a lot of opinions over the years.

Since 2001, singer My Linh and her husband have transferred 12,691m2 of land of Mr. Do Xuan Lam (formerly a state-forest enterprise’s worker). The transfer was confirmed by Minh Phu Commune People’s Committee. The People’s Committee of Soc Son District issues a certificate of land use right of 600m2, on a total area of ​​12,691m2 of protective forest land.
In 2006, the Government Inspectorate discovered many mistakes after checking the forest land use management in Soc Son Forest Enterprise and 9 communes such as Minh Phu, Minh Tri, Hien Ninh, Phu Linh … but this area miraculously escaped so in 2009, this singer built studio houses and surrounding works such as: 1 house and 1 studio with an area of ​​about 390m2, 1 swimming pool about 60m2, in addition to My Linh’s family also build garages and other auxiliary works.

Meanwhile, incumbent General Secretary and President Nguyen Phu Trong was Hanoi’s city party secretary from January 1, 2000 to June 26, 2006, where is the former Hanoi party secretary’s responsibility in the destruction of Soc Son protection forest occurred during the last two decades?

But where the fire will go when the great furnace man himself is also responsible for many violations. Mr. Trong’s determination to fight against corruption, which he claimed “no exceptions, no limits, no matter who was person” is just “unreal.”
