NDO/VNA - Permanent members of the Central Steering Committee for Anti-Corruption convened a meeting in Hanoi on April 17 under the chair of Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong, who is also head of the committee.

The members discussed and gave opinions on the progress, results, difficulties and obstacles faced in relation to the investigation, prosecution and trial of cases under the supervision of the committee.

They agreed to complete the investigation, prosecution and trial of 12 cases that are under the supervision of the committee in 2017.

The permanent members requested authorised agencies to make greater efforts and enhance coordination to address difficulties and speed up the investigation, prosecution and trial of serious cases, focusing on three out of the six cases mentioned in notice No. 30-TB/BCDTW issued by the committee.

They also asked relevant agencies to further investigate the case at the PetroVietnam Construction Corporation (PVC), as well as pursue and extradite Trinh Xuan Thanh to serve the investigation and trial.

The participants agreed to establish eight working teams of the Central Steering Committee for Anti-Corruption to inspect and supervise the prosecution, investigation, and trial of complicated and serious corruption and economic cases of public concern in 20 provinces and cities nationwide.

Concluding the meeting, Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong spoke highly of the recent efforts made by relevant agencies as well as members of the Central Steering Committee for Anti-Corruption, which have brought about remarkable results.

However, there is still much work to be done in the time ahead, requiring closer coordination among authorised agencies, he noted.

At the meeting, the participants also agreed to assign Deputy Prime Minister Truong Hoa Binh, deputy head of the committee, to participate in directing authorised agencies to settle a number of serious economic and corruption cases.
