HA NOI (VNS) — President Truong Tan Sang yesterday urged the court sector to speed up its reforms to ensure all citizens can access justice in the easiest and most convenient way.
Meeting with leading officials of the sector, the President asked them to work harder to make reforms to the Law on the People's Court in accordance with the spirit of the Constitution.
The sector should further enhance the capacity and quality of its personnel to avoid violating ethical regulations, he said.
A report to the meeting said that in the first half of this year, the court system nationwide solved 158,124 out of the 243,180 cases that had been received.
The Supreme People's Court and provincial courts also worked on 2,686 cases among the 7,783 submitted complaints.
However, the report pointed to some shortcomings in the sector's performance, including a low ratio of solved cases as well as the slow appointment process for judges at the Supreme People's Court. — VNS
