HANOI -- Some Vietnamese officials related to Trinh Xuan Thanh, former leader of PetroVietnam Construction Corporation (PVC) and former official of southern Hau Giang province, faced disciplinary action, the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Central Committee's Inspection Commission said on Friday.
Earlier, Thanh was expelled from the CPV membership and wanted by the Ministry of Public Security.
The commission decided to give warning to the former advisor to head of the Party Central Committee's Inspection Commission Bui Cao Tinh, reprimand the former Secretary of the provincial Party Committee for 2015-2020 Tran Cong Chanh and former Deputy Minister of Home Affairs Tran Thi Ha, due to their violations in personnel reception, transfer, appointment, and award to Trinh Xuan Thanh.
