The same day, legislators debated the draft Law on Denunciation (amended), saying the issuance of the revised law is significant as it creates favourable conditions for citizens to exercise their rights to denunciation.
After hearing deputies’ opinions on forms of denunciation, Government Inspector General Phan Van Sau said denunciations reported by email with e-signature and other e-forms with clear information as well as names and addresses of denunciators will undergo legal processes.
Some law-makers underlined the need to identify responsibility of agencies for protecting accusers.VNA
