NDO – Party General Secretary and President Nguyen Phu Trong has asked the relevant agencies to make more efforts to complete the investigation of corruption cases as scheduled by the Central Steering Committee for Anti-Corruption.

The Central Steering Committee for Anti-Corruption held a meeting in Hanoi on November 10, under the chair of Party chief Nguyen Phu Trong, to give opinions on a number of cases supervised by the committee after its 13th working session.

After the committee’s meeting in April, the investigation into 11 corruption cases have been completed and 13 other cases were brought to trial, including serious cases of special public concern such as the case of Dinh Ngoc He and the cases at the banks of Sacombank, TPBank and BIDV, among others.

The authorised agencies are also making efforts to accelerate the investigation and the issuance of indictment charges, in addition to bringing to trial the cases related to the use of the Internet to organise gambling, illegal trading of invoices, and money laundering in Phu Tho province and the abuse of authority to appropriate property and cause serious consequences at Dong A Bank, and others.

Party General Secretary, President and head of the Central Steering Committee for Anti-Corruption, Nguyen Phu Trong, stated that the results continue to affirm the determination of the Party and State in fighting against corruption and prove that there isn’t a “prohibited zone” or exceptions in anti-corruption.

The senior leader asked the authorised agencies to make every effort and closely coordinate with each other to finish the investigation of eight cases, issue the charge of prosecution of the cases, carry out the trial of two cases and appellate court of five cases, and complete the verification of 33 other cases as planned by the committee in 2018.
