Treść głównego artykułu


The paper commences with an explication of the prevailing understanding of corruption in Vietnam, accompanied by an overview of the legal framework and anti-corruption situation in Vietnam over the years. The authors conduct in-depth research on disciplinary measures to remove the previous posts of retired officials and civil servants found to have committed violations during their working tenure. The study analyses in detail and convincingly the nature and current inconsistencies in the legal provisions of this form of disciplinary measures and proposes several recommendations for improvement. The objective of this paper is to assist in the identification and rectification of shortcomings pertaining to the handling of retired officials and civil servants who have been found to have committed violations during their tenure.
