HÀ NỘI – The Central Steering Committee on Judicial Reform convened its third meeting in Hà Nội yesterday to discuss a draft report on the operations of the committee now and in the future.
Addressing the event, President Trần Đại Quang, head of the committee, stressed that judicial reform is important work in the Party and State’s policy of building a socialist, rule-of-law state.
He pointed to a number of lessons in the implementation process, including the need for the proper recognition of the goal, viewpoint, orientation and tasks as well as co-ordination.
Judicial reform should be conducted along with the renewal of the political system, legislative and administrative reform, he said, emphasising the significance of a suitable roadmap, specific plans matching the country’s development, unity in direction and strong judicial human resources.
Since 2002, the committee has perfomed well in advising the Politburo on measures to realise policies of the Party in judicial reform as well as Resolution 49-NQ/TW on judicial reform strategy to 2020, noted the President.
The committee also directed amendments, supplements and the completion of the legal framework on the organisation of judicial agencies, while developing personnel for the sector.
President Trần Đại Quang said that in the future, the committee would focus on consulting the Politburo on leading, directing and monitoring the Party’s policies on judicial reform and judicial reform strategy to 2020.
He said that the committee would inspect the judicial reform process of all cities, provinces as well as agencies of the judicial system at provincial level from the third quarter of 2017 to November 30, 2017.
A working group for the inspection would gather representatives from the Supreme People’s Court, the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Internal Affairs, the Office of the Central Steering Committee for Judicial Reform, he added. — VNS
