HCM CITY (VNS) — Putting forward measures to improve the efficiency of the anti-crime fight is a great political responsibility of the People's Procuracy, President Truong Tan Sang told a conference in HCM City yesterday to lay out the sector's tasks for 2016.
He hailed the People's Procuracy for fulfilling tasks in 2015, the first year to realise the 2014 Law on the Organisation of the People's Procuracy.
The sector had made positive progress in leadership and professional expertise while working to build key judicial bills, he said, adding that the role and responsibility of prosecutors had been further improved.
It also worked closely with investigative bodies and courts on major corruption cases, as well as devised initiatives to avoid wrongful convictions in order to ensure human rights in line with the Constitution and law.
The leader asked the sector to enact a Resolution adopted by the 12th National Party Congress, particularly judicial regulations to combat corruption crimes and end litigation delays.
It was required to reshuffle its apparatus, as well as improve personnel training, Party building and international co-operation in the fight against crime.
Participants at the event discussed existing shortcomings and set major tasks for next year.
This year, the sector dealt with 92.4 per cent of complaint cases, accepted 79 per cent of denunciation cases and the conviction rate was 99 per cent. — VNS
