In its two-day meeting starting today, the National Assembly’s Standing Committee will re-examine the eligibility of NA deputy Dang Thi Hoang Yen, who is facing strong criticism for dishonesty in her record declaration.

As shown in the meeting’s agenda, the re-examination will be held behind closed doors tomorrow afternoon to determine whether the female deputy, of southern Long An Province, deserves to continue being a member of the legislative body.
As previously reported, with a 100 percent ‘yes’ vote, on April 18 the Central Committee of the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) voted to propose that the National Assembly delete deputy Dang Thi Hoang Yen from the list of NA members for the dishonesty shown in her record details.
Yen, 53, who is also chairwoman of the Tan Tao Group, Tan Duc Investment and Industry Joint Stock Company, and Tan Tao University, was once admitted into the Communist Party of Vietnam in District 5, but she did not declare this in her profile as a candidate for the NA election in May 2011, the VFF said.
In addition, Yen did not provide information about her current husband, Jimmy Tran, 57, who left Vietnam for the US in 2010 and is wanted internationally by police for fraud.
The VFF also said it would ask concerned agencies to handle Yen’s wrongdoings in accordance with applicable laws.
The day before the vote, April 17, the Long An Province Fatherland Front Committee had also carried out a ballot on Yen’s NA membership eligibility, and the result was the same.

Meanwhile, Yen has met with voters in Duc Hue and Duc Hoa Districts in the province over the past two days.
In one of the meetings, some voters in Duc Hoa requested that Yen clarify the unclear details in her profile.
In reply, Yen rejected the allegation that she was dishonest in her declaration record, explaining that she had not shown certain details since the declaration form did not require her to do so, and that the Long An Province’s electoral committee had not given her full instructions for the declaration.
She said she had submitted a supplementary record to the provincial Justice Department and this agency had accepted it, which means she had indeed fully declared.
At the request of the NA Standing Committee, she will go to Hanoi on May 5 for a meeting to discuss her eligibility, Yen said.
