People's Procuracy urged to improve performance

HA NOI — President Nguyen Minh Triet has called for an overhaul of the procuracy service, which is responsible for prosecutions and legal matters.

Triet, who was speaking at a meeting in Ha Noi yesterday, said the procuracy service must be improved to ensure offenders did not escape prosecution or that innocent people were not punished.

He asked the sector to work with the courts to improve the quality of legal proceedings at procurator's hearings to protect the Party, the socialist legal system and people's rights.

The President said the procuracy service must improve the dissemination of Party and Government policies and laws on combating crime.

He also stressed the need to improve ethical training of officials to ensure they upheld the rule of law. Transparency also had to be boosted, Triet said.

The President praised the progress made on carrying out the Politburo's resolution on judicial reform up to 2020 and the National Assembly's resolution on socio-economic development. He also said the quality of procurators' supervision and the court process itself had improved.

He said the Supreme People's Court had co-ordinated successfully with central judicial offices to institutionalise the key tasks of judicial reform aimed at renovating the organisation and improving the operation of the courts, people's procuracies and investigative agencies.

Triet requested delegates to focus on discussing their shortcomings and to learn from past experience.

Among the tasks that need to be tackled are low standards of performance and inefficient supervision of judicial operations. He also said there had been too many wrongful arrests over the past year, which had enraged the public.

Participants at the meeting were told that this year the procuracy sector would also speed up judicial reform and improve staff training.

The procuracy meeting wraps up today. — VNS
