HÀ NỘI – The National Assembly’s
Standing Committee will ask the National Assembly to consider stripping Võ
Kim Cự of his NA deputy title for his wrongdoings in the Formosa
environmental disaster, said the NA Secretary General Nguyễn Hạnh Phúc on
former leader of Hà Tĩnh Province where the Formosa factory is based, was
elected as a NA deputy by a majority of 75 per cent during national elections
in April last year.
learning the causes of the environmental disaster that affected four coastal
central provinces, there were some asking the NA to review Cự’s position in
the first meeting since he was elected.
At the time,
Phúc said that any reconsideration of Cự’s title had to await the official
reports of the Party’s Central Inspection Commission and theParty Central Committee’s
Secretariaton his wrongdoings in
the Formosa case.
With the two
agencies this month both concluding that the 60-year-old leader committed
several violations leading to the Formosa incident, Phúc said that Cự no
longer had “enough credibility to be a NA deputy”.
NASC has legal basis to ask the NA to reconsider Võ Kim Cự’s deputy title.
The final decision will be in the NA’s hands during the upcoming NA meeting
in May,” Phúc said.
Party Central Committee’s Secretariat on April 21 reached a conclusion on
wrongdoings related to the Formosa environmental incident of the Party
Affairs Section of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MoNRE)
and several officials under the management of the Party Central Committee
Kim Cự, Secretary of the Party Delegation and President of the Vietnam
Cooperatives Alliance, former Hà Tĩnh Party Committee Secretary and People’s
Committee Chairman, was found to have signed many documents against the law
to aid Formosa.
secretariat also concluded that MoNRE’s Party Affairs Section of the
2011-2016 tenure, its former Minister Nguyễn Minh Quang and other two former
deputy ministers Bùi Cách Tuyến and Nguyễn Thái Lai were responsible for
MoNRE’s violations in the Formosa case.
Secretariat voted unanimously to dismiss Cự from his post as member of the
provincial Party Committee in two tenures of 2005-2010 and 2010-2015.
and Lai were stripped their titles as members of the MoNRE’s Party Affairs
Section of the 2011-2016 tenure.
