HA NOI (VNS) — The Supreme People's Procuracy of Viet Nam (SPPV) took drastic action and saw encouraging outcomes in its implementation of the Law on Corruption Prevention and Control.
The SPPV held a teleconference in Ha Noi yesterday to review the law, which was approved in 2005. It also looked at a directive issued by the Politburo in 2010 that increased the Party's leadership in the fight on crime.
A report delivered at the function said the procuracy has stepped up law dissemination, professional activities and co-ordination with investigation agencies and courts to enquire into prosecute and bring to trial corruption cases.
Many major corruption cases have been brought to light and handled, the report noted, adding that procuracies at all levels dealt with 2,910 cases involving 7,456 people in the last decade. Of those, 2,583 cases and 5,782 people were prosecuted.
Also, efforts have been made to carry out the Politburo's directive. A number of provincial procuracies have advised local Party committees on crime prevention, while working to supervise courts' verdicts and judgments.
Procuracies prosecuted 295,594 criminal cases with 529,663 defendants over the last five years.
At the conference, participants also pointed out obstacles to the execution of the anti-corruption law and the Politburo directive. They also suggested changes to improve the directive. — VNS
