Official in trouble for ‘tell-tale’ wedding card

Huynh Van Phuong, an official of the Bac Lieu Province’s Party Committee’s Inspection Commission, will be warned for having his name and place of work printed on his daughter’s wedding invitation cards.

The information was provided by Truong Minh Chien, deputy head of the Bac Lieu Province Party Committee.

Chien told Tuoi Tre yesterday that Phuong, aka Tam Phuong, is the head of the Financial Inspection Division of the Inspection Commission.

Phuong Thursday told VnExpress newswire that he did not have any position in the commission and he just indicated where he worked only as a means of identification to let guests know exactly who had invited them.

He also said he had only invited current and ex colleagues and close friends to the wedding, which took place yesterday afternoon.

Talking with Tuoi Tre over the phone yesterday, Pham Viet Lam, deputy chairman of the commission, said, “Phuong is the head of a division, so we will consider a disciplinary action against him for this act [printing name, office on card].”

A similar case happened earlier this month when Nguyen Hung Dung, standing deputy head of the Can Tho Steering Board for Anti-Corruption, was reprimanded by the city Party Committee for printing his name and position on his son’s wedding invitation card.

“An official with such a sensitive and important job as Dung should not reveal himself that way, since it is likely to be understood that he wanted to abuse his position for benefit,” a veteran city official said.
