MOSCOW (VNS)— Government Inspector General Huynh Phong Tranh studied how Russian agencies fought corruption during the second day of his visit to the European country, which began on Sunday.

At a working session with the Russian Anti-corruption Department, the Vietnamese official was told how corruption was handled.

The two sides discussed their state inspection systems and pondered the possibility of a partnership between the two agencies.

This, they said, could be achieved with a memorandum of understanding on sharing information.

On the same day, Tranh and his entourage worked with the Russian Supreme Court, where First Vice-chief Judge Piort Serkov explained the judicial powers available to crackdown on corrupt public servants. — VNS
