NA Standing Committee discusses penalties

HA NOI (VNS)— The National Assembly Standing Committee wrapped up its five-day meeting yesterday by discussing a draft ordinance on penalties for violations against procedural activities of people's courts.

The 2012 Law on Handling of Administrative Violations empowered People's Courts to fine those who obstruct their procedural activities. However, the violations are not clarified clearly in the law, so the Supreme People's Court said it was necessary to pass an ordinance on the issue.

The ordinance is expected to lay out what violations would be penalised, as well as penalty levels and proceedings. In the draft, such violations include actions that violate court regulations and orders, failure to comply with court summons, threatening officers on duty, obstructing the evidence collecting process or wrongly reporting the court's activities.

The Supreme People's Court, which is in charge of compiling the draft, suggested that in addition to warning violators, the court's decision should be provided to organisations and schools where the violators worked or studied and People's Committees of the ward or commune where they lived.

However, many members of the NA Standing Committee, especially the Judiciary Committee, which examined the draft earlier, said that the draft ordinance must be prepared more carefully to better go in line with the newly approved Constitution and other laws including the Civil Procedure Code and Criminal Procedure Code.

NA vice chairman Uong Chu Luu asked the compiling board to review and improve the draft so that law markers could discuss it in their next meeting in April.

One of the key tasks of the NA Standing Committee this month and next is to prepare for the seventh session of the 13th National Assembly, which will convene on May 20 in Ha Noi and last for 29 days. — VNS
