In particular, due to his lack of responsibility in leadership, direction, review, and approval of investment project support, which caused serious consequences, Mr. Le Van Thang was prosecuted by the Lang Son Provincial Police’s Investigative Agency for the offense of “Violation of regulations on management and use of public investment capital causing serious consequences,” as stipulated in Article 220, Clause 3 of the Criminal Code.
