National Assembly deputies looked into the draft Law on Civil Procedures during their sitting at the 10 th session in Hanoi on October 26.

The bill stipulates that those involved in any cases are responsible for scanning and sending letters of complaint and evidence to the court and their defendants, making it easier for all parties concerned to protect their legitimate rights and interests.

Legislators shared the view that evidence and related materials should be authenticated before being sent to serve as foundation for the litigation.

Regarding the jurisdiction of the jury of the Supreme Court of Appeals, they stressed the need to legalise its rights to make changes to a part or full verdict as well as the court’s decisions in force. It can be done only when criteria are met, in order to avoid abuse.

They also approved recognising reconciliation attempts made outside the court, saying that it suits modern realities and international practices.

The court must examine the reconciliation contents to ensure they are in accordance with the law, they said.

Several opinions called for criteria for the eligibility of reconciliation and step-by-step procedures involved.

Matters regarding civil court fees and the principles of civil proceedings were also under review.

On October 27, lawmakers are due to hear a report on the draft law on amendments and supplements to several articles of the Law on Taxation and a report on the draft resolution on regulations for NA’s meetings while discussing the draft Law on Administrative Procedures.-VNA
