President Truong Tan Sang called for the acceleration of judicial reform in the near future at the eighth meeting of the Central Steering Committee for Judicial Reform in Hanoi on December 10.

Sang, who is also head of the committee asked delegates to clarify the shortcomings that need to be addressed during implementation.

He affirmed that the aim of the reform is to build a transparent, strong, democratic and strict justice system. He urged participants to maintain an open-minded and democratic spirit and to brainstorm the draft project to promptly submit to the Politburo for consideration.

Participants stressed the need to carefully consider the implementation to ensure Party leadership and supervision of the People’s Councils, the contact between law enforcement bodies and locals in remote areas and coordination among judicial agencies in law enforcement./.VNA
