VietNamNet Bridge – The Prime Minister dismissed Vietnam National University in Hanoi President Mai Trong Nhuan, after the Government Inspectorate uncovered a raft of corrupt practises during his tenure.

Many of the university’s faculties had let students graduate without completing or protecting their theses, while other programmes lacked documents confirming the legal status of the affiliate or were insufficiently vague about project details.

An inspection of the university’s financial revenue and expenditure also exposed that Nhuan had skimmed money off into another account.

Nhuan was requested to return over VND21 billion (USD1million) which he had illegally siphoned off university budgets.

The Government Inspectorate suggested the university determine what responsibilities Nhuan had exercised over the years, especially his role in the illegally issued documents, permission granted to foreign education facilities, personnel recruitment, and misconduct related to affiliated programmes.

A financial inspection of the Centre for Educational Technology and Career Development (ETC), an official member of Vietnam National University in Hanoi, revealed that ETC had not transferred the total payment to its affiliate, with some of the money going to an unknown bank account in Singapore, which might be related to ETC head Nguyen Quang Hoa Binh.

Professor Mai Trong Nhuan was born in 1952 and served as the President of Vietnam National University in Hanoi since 2007.
