Hanoi (VNA) – The Central Steering Committee on Judicial Reform convened the third meeting in Hanoi on May 30 to discuss a draft report on the organisation and operation model of the committee so far and in the future.

Addressing the event, President Tran Dai Quang, head of the committee, stressed that judicial reform is a significant work in the Party and State’s policy on building a socialist rule-of-law state in Vietnam.

He pointed to a number of lessons withdrawn from the implementation process, including the need for the proper recognition of the goal, viewpoint, orientation and task in the work as well as close coordination.

Judicial reform should be conducted in parallel with the renovation of the political system, legislative and administrative reform, he said, emphasising the significance of a suitable roadmap, specific plans matching the country’s socio-economic development, the unity in direction and strong judicial human resources.

Since 2002, the committee has showed good performance in advising the Politburo on measures to realise major policies and orientations of the Party in judicial reform as well as Resolution 49-NQ/TW on judicial reform strategy to 2020, noted the President.

At the same time, the committee also directed the amendments, supplements and completion of legal framework on the organisation of judicial agencies, while contributing to developing personnel for the sector.

President Tran Dai Quang said that in the future, the committee will continue focusing on giving consultations to the Politburo on leading, directing and monitoring the implementation of the Party’s policies on judicial reform and judicial reform strategy to 2020.

He clarified that the committee will inspect the judicial reform process of all cities, provinces as well as agencies of the judicial system at provincial level from the third quarter of 2017 to November 30, 2017.

A working group for the inspection will gather representatives from the Supreme People’s Court, the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Internal Affairs, the Office of the Central Steering Committee for Judicial Reform, he added.-VNA
