NDO/VNA - The National Assembly (NA) Standing Committee has approved a resolution relieving Phan Thi My Thanh of the post of NA deputy of Dong Nai province as from May 14.

The resolution was issued at the 24th session of the NA Standing Committee that opened in Hanoi on May 14.

The NA Standing Committee announced that it received Thanh’s application for resignation from the post on May 4 in which she cited her unstable health and the disciplinary measure imposed by the Party as the reason.

Earlier, the Party Central Committee Secretariat decided to dismiss Thanh, who had also been Deputy Secretary of the Dong Nai provincial Party Committee, from all of her Party positions as a disciplinary measure for her wrongdoings while serving in different posts in this southern province.

The Secretariat said her violations and shortcomings were very serious, caused discontent among officials, Party members and local people, and negatively affected the prestige of the local Party organisation and herself.

Also on May 14, the NA Standing Committee listened to the report on the cases of Dinh La Thang, an NA deputy of Thanh Hoa province, and Nguyen Quoc Khanh, an NA deputy of Quang Nam province.

Thang and Thanh have been found guilty in a case involving the state oil company PVN, meaning they will automatically lose their NA deputy status under the Criminal Procedure Code.
