He requested the steering committee to review the implementation of its tasks every six months or every year and set forth key missions for the following years.
Priority should be given to studying the supplementation and revision of the Penal Code as well as building documents guiding the enforcement of new laws and codes on judicial procedures adopted by the National Assembly, and improving the efficiency of operations of judicial offices, and organisations of lawyers and notaries, he suggested.
The State leader asked committee members to strictly follow key tasks to ensure the leadership of the Party and strengthen international cooperation in judicial reform.
He also stressed the importance of improving the knowledge and skills of judicial officers and implementing measures to prevent negative deeds in judicial activities.VNA
