HA NOI (VNS)— The Central Steering Committee for Judicial Reform held a conference in Ha Noi yesterday to gather opinions for a report reviewing last year's judicial restructuring and tasks for 2014.

President Truong Tan Sang, who is head of the committee, presided over the 14th working session.

According to the draft report prepared by the committee, Viet Nam had seen remarkable results in judicial reform in recent years.

Positive changes have been made in the processes of investigation, prosecution, trial and execution, which helped prevent incorrect verdicts.

At the session, delegates focused on clarifying the shortcomings in recent reforms, analysing the reasons and suggesting several major solutions to improve procedures in the future.

According to the delegates, the slowness in the implementation of some projects, such as the restructuring of investigative agencies towards one collective lead and the organisation of both the people's procuracy and the people's court systems into four levels (instead of three as now) had affected the process of judicial reform.

Regarding this year's targets, delegates attached importance to amending legal documents in line with the recently revised Constitution.

In addition, attention was paid to clarifying litigation laws and further specifying judicial power in building a socialist, law-governed State, they said.

Agreeing with the meeting's report, President Sang urged the delegates to soon solve existing problems and asked them to avoid overlapping to reduce unjust cases. — VNS
