Chairman of the National Assembly Nguyen Sinh Hung has underlined the need of personnel training for the Government Inspectorate to better protect the legitimate rights and interests of citizens.

Working with key leaders of the sector on March 31, he stressed that the sector must uphold the principle of ensuring law observation and accuracy in all inspection conclusions.

Government inspectors must carry the responsibilities before citizens for their operations, therefore, they should exert every effort to detect law violations in all sectors and levels, consolidating people’s trust in the Party and State, he said.

According to Chief Government Inspector Huynh Phong Tranh, during the 2011-2013 period, the sector conducted nearly 30,000 administrative and more than 430,000 specific inspections.

The sector detected violations involving over 102 trillion VND and nearly 300,000 hectares of land, proposing the reclamation of 60.2 trillion VND and 14,752 hectares of land as well as punishments for nearly 4,000 collectives and 7,000 individuals, he noted.

At the same time, the Government Inspectorate brought to light 319 corruption cases and 526 suspects with 726 billion VND and 10 hectares of property. It strictly handled 52 leaders of agencies engaging in fraudulent activities, said Tranh.

During the last three years, the sector settled 360,000 citizen complaints, through which it restored nearly two trillion VND and 886 hectares of land for citizens, uncovering 2,373 individuals and transferring to investigation forces 400 others, he added.

He also pointed out some shortcomings of the sector, including the long duration to make an inspection report and the modest number of cases handed over to investigation agencies.

The official asserted that the causes of the limitations are the inadequate regulations of the Inspection Law as well as the insufficient capacity of many inspectors.-VNA
