Hanoi (VNA) – President Tran Dai Quang urged the procuracy sector to focus on achieving a stronger Party organisation and comprehensive development while attending the sector’s conference held on December 29 to launch missions in 2018.

President Quang asked the procuracy sector to effectively carry out the resolution of the fourth Party Central Committee (12th tenure) on strengthening Party building and rectification and the Politburo’s Directive No.05-CT/TW on studying and following President Ho Chi Minh’s ideology, morality and style.

As a line-up of new regulations on legislative reforms will take effect in 2018, he asked the sector to study and recommend the Party, Government and relevant authorities for measures against violations, particularly economic crimes and corruption. Respecting legal regulations makes significant contributions to building a democratic and civilised society, he noted.

The sector needs to join hands with relevant organisations to put forth inspection, prosecution and trial of critical corruption cases and reclaim arrogated assets of the state, Quang said.

It is requested to complete cooperation mechanisms with the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Internal Affairs, the Ministry of Public Security, Supreme People’s Court, the Ministry of Justice, the Government Inspectorate, branches and localities in the fight against crimes as well as the building of institutional mechanisms.

The sector should pay heed to international cooperation in the prevention of crimes, he stressed.

In 2017, the People’s Procuracy at all levels detected and prosecuted 69,481 criminal cases. The sector strictly adjudicated serious economic violation and corruption cases.

In addition, myriads of solutions have been carried out to improve examination and handling of criminal cases. Enhancing inspection quality in other judicial activities and strengthening the Party organization within the sector have been prioritised as well.-VNA
