State President Truong Tan Sang has asked the Supreme People’s Procuracy (SPP) to bring into play its collective brainpower, solidarity and creativity to make important changes in judicial reform to match national construction and defence.

President Sang, who is also Head of the Central Steering Committee on Judicial Reform, made the request at a working session with SPP leaders on the results of implementing the Political Bureau’s Resolution on judicial reform strategy in the people’s procuracy sector.

The SPP said it has instructed procuracy institutes at all levels to increase the practice of supervisory roles as well as the quality of proceedings and trials at courts, to minimise cases of unjust convictions and speed up the settlement of verdicts.

However, mistakes remained, with unjust conviction cases and suspended investigations. Appeals have been enhanced but were still less than corrected and cancelled verdicts.

The State leader took the occasion to hail SPP staff in building a strong, transparent procuracy sector, to gradually meet the requirements of judicial reform and international integration.

He also noted that procuracy institutes at all levels have rejected violations and proposed measures to overcome these cases, to increase the quality and efficiency of judicial activities and protect the State’s interests and legitimate rights and interests of agencies, organisations and citizens.

Sang proposed the sector enhance its sense of responsibility and activity in training cadres, strengthening its apparatus and models of operation in line with its functions and tasks and meeting judicial reform requirements./.
