The decision was made at the proposal of the Government chief.

Earlier on July 18, PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc issued a warning to Tuan as a disciplinary measure for his violations at the Ministry.

Previously the Politburo of the Communist Party of Viet Nam Central Committee also issued a warning and relieved him from his post as Secretary of the Party Committee of the Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) for the 2016-2021 term.

Tuan must bear responsibility for the violations and wrongdoings committed by the Ministry’s Party Committee during the 2011-2016 term when he was serving as a member of the MIC’s Party Committee and Deputy Minister of Information and Communications, according to the Politburo. 

He violated the principle of democratic centralism and working regulations, showing a lack of responsibility and lax in leadership when tasked to direct the implementation of a project on purchasing 95 percent of shares at the AVG Audiovisual JSC by the MobiFone Telecommunications Corporation. 

He also signed Decision No.236/QD-BTTTT dated December 21, 2015 on the ministry’s approval of the project, as well as a number of related documents that ran against regulations, including documents beyond his assigned duty.

In his capacity as Secretary of the MIC’s Party Committee and MIC Minister since April 2016, Tuan is held responsible for the violations and wrongdoings committed by the committee for the 2016-2021 tenure, the Politburo concluded./.
