ĐẮK NÔNG — The Đắk Nông Provincial Inspection Committee today issued strictures following the results of its investigation into management violations committed by a number of the province’s officials.

According to the committee’s reports, the Party Branch of Đức Hoà Forestry JSC and its secretary Phạm Đình Dũng, during eight years, from 2008 to 2016, “have failed to complete the task of leading forest protection and management efforts that the province’s leaders have assigned,” allowing rampant encroachment upon protected forest land over a long period.

Specifically, the company was tasked with protecting 1,828ha of forest; however, eight years of mismanagement resulted in a loss of 567.3ha, a third of the allocated area.

Strictures have also been handed to Phạm Đình Bộ, deputy head of the province’s industrial parks management board, after it was found that during the time he served as vice chairman of Đắk Song People’s Committee (2004-2011), he certified and granted six land use rights certificates on forest land in Trường Xuân Commune in contravention of existing regulations. — VNS
