HA NOI (VNS) — Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong has urged the Supreme People's Court to improve the quality of its judgments and ensure verdicts are equitable and lawful.
Trong said the court must increase its protection of the legal rights and interests of the State and people. He was speaking at a working session with key court officials in Ha Noi yesterday.
He asked the court to increase co-ordination with relevant agencies to combat and prevent corruption, especially in reclaiming assets from major anti-corruption cases.
He said the court needed to improve law and ordinance by proposing amendments or supplements or proposing new laws in the spirit of judicial and institutional reform.
Trong requested the courts at all levels to enhance collaboration with judicial agencies to create high levels of consensus and democracy.
He said they should also concentrate on building the Party and political system in State management agencies as well as improving personnel training.
According to the Chief Judge of the Supreme People's Court, Truong Hoa Binh, the courts addressed 1,382,352 of the 1,411,185 cases accepted between 2011 and 2014, or 92.8 per cent, including a number of serious economic and corruption cases.
The Supreme People's Court submitted four laws to the National Assembly for approval, including the revised Law on the organisation of the People's Courts, to institutionalise new regulations stipulated in the Constitution and the Party's viewpoints on judicial reform.
Judicial officials proposed increasing the court workforce and prioritising expenses for information technology for the staff. — VNS
