NDO/VNA – Chief Judge of the Supreme People’s Court Nguyen Hoa Binh has suggested that the Supreme Court of India (SCI) dispatches a group of experts in reconciliation and e-courts in order to help Vietnam in these fields.

Binh made the suggestion during his talks with SCI Chief Justice Dipak Misra in New Delhi, on November 28, as part of his working visit to India from November 27-29.

After being briefed on India’s court system and its recent reforms, the Vietnamese Chief Judge applauded the reconciliation work at Indian courts.

He took the occasion to invite Misra to pay a visit to Vietnam in 2018. The Indian Chief Justice accepted the invitation with pleasure and pledged to send judges and experts to assist Vietnam in the areas of the country’s interests.

The same day, Binh had a working session with Chief Justice of the Delhi High Court Gita Mittal, who introduced a reconciliation model, recently piloted in the Indian court system, to her guest.

Binh asked the Indian side to help Vietnamese courts in the settlement of disputes, by sharing information, organising training courses and dispatching judicial experts and officials to Vietnam and vice versa.
