Old speaking of former Minister Mai Tien Dung now applied to him

Former Minister-Head of Government Office Mai Tien Dung

Referring to former Minister-Chairman of the Government Office Mai Tien Dung, people immediately think of his old saying “If wrong, we admit the fault while people committing wrongdoings are responsible before the law.” This statement was said by Mr. Mai Tien Dung at the Government press conference in April 2017, in the unsuccessful land coercion case in Hoanh village, Dong Tam commune, My Duc district, Hanoi.

Nearly 3 years later, To Lam sent thousands of riot police to Dong Tam to kill local spiritual leader Le Dinh Kinh and arrest many of his family. The government’s killing attack in the middle of the night was considered right, and the farmers who protected the land were sentenced to heavy sentences. Through this case, the inequality between the government and the people is very clear. The government is wrong, the government doesn’t need to apologize, and people who only defend themselves automatically become criminals.

The fact is that in the mind of government officials always look down on the people. It dates back to the time of Ho Chi Minh, when implementing the Land Reform campaign, when the Communist regime killed 172,000 people, just because they had more assets than others. This barbaric crime was later erased by the Communist Party, as if President Ho Chi Minh did not participate in this crime. He just needed to cry in front of the camera and wipe his tears with a towel, he would still be “Great Uncle Ho.”

Mr. Mai Tien Dung said the above sentence is saying the words of the Party. In a barbaric time, people with little education did not realize inequality, however, today is the age of the global Internet, so Mai Tien Dung’s statement was reacted. Whatever the reaction, the nature of the regime remains the same.

In fact, no official is clean, only officials have not been exposed. In 2017, Mai Tien Dung said the above famous saying as a “father and mother” who wanted to teach people to preserve. In fact, he at that time was just an official who had not been exposed, not that he was clean enough to “teach the people.”

Actually, the correct saying is “If wrong, we admit the fault, people are responsible before the law for their committed wrongdoings.”

On March 13, the state-controlled press simultaneously published the news that Mai Tien Dung, former Minister-Chairman of the Government Office, was disciplined for having committed violations and shortcomings in his work. The person who signed the Decision on Discipline is Deputy Prime Minister Tran Luu Quang,.

Previously, in early January, General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong chaired a meeting of the Secretariat to review and discipline Mai Tien Dung. After considering the request of the Central Inspection Commission, the Secretariat found that Mai Tien Dung, as Minister-Chairman of the Government Office, had violated the principle of democratic centralism and the Party’s regulations and the state laws. Dung was also said to have lacked responsibility in performing the task of organizing flights to bring citizens home during the Covid-19 pandemic; so that a number of officials of the Government Office advising and incorrectly proposing conclusions of the Prime Minister, and accepting bribes, were prosecuted and detained.

Previously, Mai Tien Dung said ” If wrong, we admit the fault, people are responsible before the law for their committed wrongdoings.” That is, only people when they do wrong will get involved with the law, and cadres are not. Indeed, the Communist Party has always done that, but now, Nguyen Phu Trong is using anti-corruption tools to purge, so officials are still being touched by the law as usual.

Being disciplined in terms of the Party does not necessarily mean being touched by the law. However, in order to clear the way for prosecution and arrest, Nguyen Phu Trong usually gives Party discipline first. Let’s wait and see, does Nguyen Phu Trong do the right thing with Mr. Mai Tien Dung’s wrongdoing?

Mr. Mai Tien Dung was Minister-Chairman of the Government Office under Nguyen Xuan Phuc’s leadership. It is possible that this case is aimed at Phuc. Wait and see, what will Nguyen Phu Trong do next?

Mr. Mai Tien Dung was warned
