HA NOI (VNS)— Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong asked the Party Central Committee's Commission for Internal Affairs to pay attention to both preventing and combating corruption.

He also requested the commission to prepare documents pertaining to internal affairs, security and anti-corruption for the Party's upcoming 12th Congress.

Trong reiterated that the re-establishment of the Commission for Internal Affairs shows the determination of the Party and State to push up the endeavour against corruption.

Speaking at the session, head of the commission Nguyen Ba Thanh said his agency has proactively worked with other agencies in directing the settlement of serious and complicated corruption cases that caught the public's interest.

It also worked closely with executive bodies to speed up the progress of investigations and prosecution of major corruption cases in accordance with legal regulations. — VNS
