NDO—The National Steering Committee for Judicial Reform (NSCJR) convened its second session on January 11 to discuss two draft reports on reviewing its performance in 2016, as well as outlining key tasks for 2017.

The session, chaired by President Tran Dai Quang also saw the attendance of Politburo members Truong Hoa Binh, Deputy Prime Minister and To Lam, minister of Public Security, among others.

In his speech, President Quang, who is head of the committee, asked committee members to actively inspect and speed up preparations of plans to carry out the 2016-2021 working regulations, as well as to strengthen the monitoring of the operation of judicial agencies, contributing to the goal of building a clean, strong, democratic and gradually modernised judicial system.

President Quang also pointed to shortcomings in the committee’s monitoring work, particularly in detecting and dealing with some corruption cases, while the quality of law assessment and revision still leaves much to be desired.

Relevant Party committees, agencies and organisations should also pay more attention to promoting the communications of judicial reform targets as stipulated by Party guidelines and serious compliance with the Constitution and newly enacted laws by the National Assembly, the President noted.

He also underscored the importance of improving the knowledge and skills of judicial officers and implementing measures to prevent negative deeds in judicial activities.
