HÀ NỘI — President Trần Đại Quang has urged the judicial sector to focus on dealing with complaints and denunciations from people and to increase direct dialogues with citizens to prevent prolonged and complicated cases.
Addressing a meeting held by the Ministry of Justice yesterday to review its performance over the past year and set tasks for 2018, Quang urged the sector to increase the number of enforced verdicts and improve efficiency in revoking assets stolen in economic or corruption cases.
The ministry should continue working with ministries and agencies to handle legal issues arising during the international integration process while promoting international co-operation with countries and organisations in law and policy building, he said.
The human factor plays an important role in fulfilling tasks so the ministry should build a staff with fine personality, firm political will, high responsibility and high professional skills, he said.
The President instructed the ministry to follow Party and State leadership and guidance in law building, judicial reform and administrative reform and to consult the Central Steering Committee on Judicial Reform in implementing Party resolutions on judicial reform.
The ministry was asked to co-ordinate with relevant agencies to implement law enforcement, particularly laws approved by the National Assembly such as the Law on State Compensation Liability, the Law on Legal Aid and the Law on Access to Information.
The President also urged the ministry to continue renewing State management on issues relating directly to citizens and businesses and to speed up administrative reform in areas managed by the judicial sector.
In 2018, the sector will focus on key tasks, including speeding up law enforcement, exceeding yearly targets on civil judgment enforcement, completing the organisation of judicial agencies to improve their operation efficiency and enhancing supervision to prevent violations in the judicial sector.
The President took this occasion to praise the judicial sector for its achievements over the past year.
As reported by the ministry, in 2017, the civil judgment enforcement sector settled 549,000 cases, nine per cent above the yearly target. — VNS
