Tran Van Nam has been dismissed as Party Committee Secretary of the southern province of Binh Duong for land management violations that cost the state VND126 billion ($5.47 million).

All his other Party positions for three terms – 2010-2015, 2015-2020 and 2020-2025 – have also been revoked, the Central Party Committee said Tuesday.

Binh Duong is a neighbor of Ho Chi Minh City and a major industrial hub.

On June 18, the Politburo, the main decision-making body of the Communist Party of Vietnam, ordered the Central Committee, the Party’s highest authority, to consider and take disciplinary action against Nam, finding him "responsible for leader's violations and shortcomings of the Party Committee of Binh Duong Province for the 2015-20 term."

It said Nam also violated the principle of democratic centralism and the guidelines of the Binh Duong Province Party Committee, aside from violating the law on management and use of land, capital and assets of the Party and the state at the Binh Duong Producing and Trading Corporation, a company of the province's Party unit.

According to the Central Inspection Committee, Nam was directly responsible for signing documents to transfer 188 hectares of land that belonged to the Binh Duong Producing and Trading Corporation to private investors, causing VND126 billion in losses to the state.

On June 10, the National Election Council issued a resolution not to recognize the election results despite Nam getting more than 80 percent of the valid votes to become a legislator.
