Sang, 57, who was a former member of the Standing Board of the Party Committee at BIDV, was found to be responsible for the violations and shortcomings of the standing board during the 2010-2015 and 2015-2020 tenures, including violating regulations on loans, financial guarantees, investments and debts.

He was held responsible for the proposal and appraisal of loans, worth VND4.7 trillion (USD201.8 million), for 12 companies involved in a criminal case at Vietnam Construction Bank.

Sang joined BIDV in 1983 and rose through the ranks. In 2013, he was appointed deputy general director of the bank and chairman of BIDV Securities JSC.

In August last year, Sang resigned from the post of deputy general director at BIDV.
