Draft revisions to the Civil Procedure Code were high on the agenda at a plenary session of the ongoing 13th National Assembly (NA)’s 10th sitting on October 26.

Chairman of the NA Justice Committee Nguyen Van Hien delivered a report on the committee’s acquisition of deputy opinions about the draft amendments.

Lawmakers then discussed debatable points in the draft, focusing on such matters as the right to demand the Courts protect the legitimate rights and interests of the people, the role of the People’s Procuracies in civil procedures, procedures for resolving labour contracts and invalid collective labour agreements, and the postponement of appeal trials.

The parliament is set to gather at another plenary session on October 27 to hear reports on the draft law on amendments and supplements to several articles of tax-related laws. Deputies will also overview contentious issues of draft revisions to the administrative procedure law.

The NA’s 10th sitting, the last in 2015, is scheduled to last for 31 days and wind up on November 28.-VNA
