Committee unable to handle influx of citizens' petitions

Update: March, 05/2015 - 10:22

HA NOI (VNS) — About 75 per cent of petitions delivered to the Central Citizen Reception Committee (CCRC) last year failed to meet necessary requirements, the committee reported in a recent working session in Ha Noi.

CCRC Director General Nguyen Hong Diep said that more than 14,000 out of about 18,900 petitions received by the CRCC had problems, including unclear names and addresses.

Many other names were repeated, as the residents continued sending petitions to the CCRC despite the fact that their prior requests had been delivered to the competent administration agencies.

President of the Viet Nam Fatherland Front Central Committee Nguyen Thien Nhan also attended the session. Nhan expressed concern over the CCRC headquarters' capacity shortage, as the number of residents coming by the place to send complaint and denunciation petitions rose 69 per cent compared with 2013.

"If this trend continues, the reception area will be too overloaded," Nhan said.

More law consultations would help residents, and reduce crowding at the CCRC, he said. — VNS
