HCM City (VNA) – The Ho Chi Minh City People’s Court debuted a family and juvenile tribunal on April 4.

The launching ceremony was attended by local officials and representatives of the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Public Security, the Supreme People’s Procuracy and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).

Speaking at the event, Chief Justice of the Supreme People’s Court Truong Hoa Binh said the formation of a family and juvenile tribunal as part of a People’s Court, can be counted as a success of judicial reforms.

It is a step to concretise the Party’s viewpoints and the State’s laws on protecting and developing Vietnamese families, while protecting, caring for and educating children. It also demonstrates Vietnam’s strong commitment to ensuring children’s rights, especially in judicial activities.

He added that the family and juvenile tribunal will professionalise and improve the quality of the settlement of family and adolescent-related cases.

The tribunal headquarters at No. 26 Le Thanh Ton street in District 1 of HCM City also has specialised sections such as a conciliation room, a consultation room and a children’s room.
