HCM CITY (VNS) — Despite progress over the past 20 years, the implementation of verdicts and decisions in civil cases remains ineffective and needs to be improved, Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc told HCM City's leaders and officials yesterday.
Speaking at a conference held by the Central Steering Committee on Judicial Reform, he said that achievements in this area had helped secure the rights and benefits of the State, society and civilians since 1993.
But he also noted that problems remained, affecting the public's trust in the judicial process.
He said that the task to improve implementation of verdicts in civil cases was challenging but necessary.
It would contribute to the success of administrative tasks and speeding up of international integration, he added.
Le Thi Thu Ba, deputy head of the Central Steering Committee on Judicial Reform, said that in recent years the tasks associated with trials and verdict implementation had been separated.
During the conference, participants discussed how the system could be better organised.
Officials also stressed the role of People's Committees in implementation of criminal and civil verdicts.
Hua Ngoc Thuan, vice chairman of the HCM City People's Committee, said that better coordination between local government and agencies was essential.
Thuan said a new regulation should be created to require coordination between the Ministry of Justice and city-level People's Committees, civil verdict-implementation bureaus and district-level People's Committees.
Phuc emphasised the early role and responsibility of the People's Court, People's Committees and agencies that oversee the implementation of verdicts. —VNS
