The Central Steering Committee for Judicial Reform held a conference in Hanoi on March 31 to collect opinions on significant issues of revised draft Laws on the Organisation of the People’s Court and the People’s Procuracy.

President Truong Tan Sang, who is head of the committee, presided over its 15 th working session.

Participants focused on a detailed project on reforming the organisation and activities of the Supreme People’s Court, provincial-level and regional People’s Courts.

The discussion on the organisation of People’s Procuracies at all levels and reforming the organisation and operations of military judicial bodies was a focus at the conference.

Concluding the session, President Sang said that the projects and draft laws follow closely the 11th National Party Congress’s documents and the recently-revised Constitution’s regulations related to judicial reform.

He required agencies in charge of preparing the projects and draft laws to be fully open to opinions proposed by the committee’s members and underpin the draft laws with sound and scientific arguments.

New matters emerging during the preparations must be researched and scrutinised on the basis of the policies of the Party and the regulations in the Constitution.

It is necessary to soon perfect the draft laws to submit to the National Assembly for debate at its upcoming 7th session scheduled for May, he added.-VNA
