He also highly appreciated the sector for their drastic measures to promptly and strictly handle several major corruption cases including the ones related to the State Bank of Vietnam, Việt Á Company, AIC Company, FLC Group, Tân Hoàng Minh Company and Vạn Thịnh Phát Company.
He said the sector has also done a good job in the supervision of the settlement of administrative cases; civil, marriage and family, business, commercial and labour cases as prescribed by law.
It has also continued to strengthen the prosecutor's responsibility and the procurator's litigation skills in solving criminal cases, ensure that the decisions and approvals of the Procuracy are grounded and in accordance with the law, and minimise the occurrence of injustice, wrongdoing, and omission of crimes.
Among the tasks for the future, President Phúc highlighted that the procuracy sector must be mindful and proactive in controlling power in order to prevent and fight against corruption and wrongdoings in their investigation, prosecution, adjudication and judgment enforcement activities.
