The fact that Vietnam’s legal documents are incompatible with that of several foreign countries has been another difficulty in asking other countries for justice assistance, as well as in reaching agreements on criminal extradition, the reports revealed.

Speaking at the meeting, on behalf of the Party and State President Tran Dai Quang appreciated and praised the achievements of the investigation agencies under the Ministry of Public Security, Ministry of National Defense, and the Supreme People’s Court in the past years.

The President requested the investigation agencies continue to improve the quality and efficiency in maintaining national security and social order in order to contribute to firmly protecting the Party, socialism, safeguarding the interests of the State, as well as the legitimate rights and interests of citizens.

Investigators should focus on bringing into light major economic and corruption cases that have caught public concerns, President Tran Dai Quang added.

Alerting the investigators that economic and corruption criminals are resorting to flee to other countries which have not yet signed justice assistance agreements with Vietnam, he asked the investigation agencies deploy preventive measures to manage those being investigated.

On the requests of the President, the agencies should expand their international cooperation in investigating and handling crimes such as cross-border crimes, drug related crimes, economic, corruption and high-tech crimes, terrorists and human traffickers.

The President also urged the agencies to focus on researching and building the draft law on adjusting a number of articles of the 2015 Criminal Law and relevant bills.
