Viet Nam, Cambodia join hands to fight crime

TAY NINH (VNS)  — The Tay Ninh provincial People's Court and the Court of First Instance of Cambodia's Kompong Cham province will step up co-operation in a bid to strengthen the fight against cross-border crime.

Under an agreement signed on January 3, the two sides will share skills and knowledge in addition to strengthening existing arrangements established in a joint statement issued in October 2012 by courts of border provinces from Viet Nam, Laos and Cambodia.

According to Nguyen Hoa Hiep, Chief Judge of the Tay Ninh People's Court, the border line of more than 240 kilometres had significantly complicated the operations of the court and relevant agencies.

He also highlighted an urgent need for Viet Nam and Cambodia to accelerate the completion of their legal obligations, build bilateral and multilateral treaties on joint efforts to reduce crime and provide judicial support. —VNS
