HA NOI (VNS) — The nation's top prosecuting agency, the People's Supreme Procuracy, should improve the quality of work done by its agencies at all levels and enhance supervision towards avoiding unjust convictions, President Truong Tan Sang said yesterday.

It should also be very strict in handling cases of economic corruption and accelerate their settlement, he said at a working session with leaders of the agency that aimed to review its performance in 2013 and set the agenda for 2014.

He said the agency should focus on removing existing flaws and come up with measures to fulfill tasks more efficiently and effectively.

Sang said he believed there would be positive changes in the operations of prosecuting agencies next year as judicial reforms continue and important legal documents, particularly the newly-adopted Constitution, take effect.

He asked the agency to seriously implement Party policies and National Assembly resolutions on judicial activities.

Leading procuracy officials told the President that the agencies nationwide had increased the quality of investigations and prosecutions, and improved its response to public denunciations of corrupt officials and other forms of corruption.

The agency has brought 98.7 percent of lawsuits to resolution, they said. — VNS
