National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan on January 8 called on the procuracy sector to speed up its work on especially serious corruption and economic cases, and exert greater efforts to promote anti-corruption and the fight against crime.
Addressing the sector’s conference in Hanoi to launch missions for 2019, the top legislator hailed the sector for achievements it made in 2018.
She hoped for higher efficiency of the procuracy work, asking the sector to effectively implement guidelines of the Party, and policies and laws of the State as well as resolutions of the NA related to the justice.
Attention should be paid to improving the quality of exercising the power to prosecution, ensuring the prosecution of right persons and counts, the top legislator said.
“The sector should take the initiative in proposing solutions to improve the quality and efficiency of the judicial activity monitoring, thus ensuring that all crimes must be detected and handled promptly and strictly”, Ngan said.
She also asked the sector to actively propose and implement measures to recover assets in corruption cases, and to combat corruption and economic crimes.
It is necessary to ensure that the instigation agency of the Supreme People's Procuracy is truly an effective tool to prevent acts of infringing on judicial activities and making corruption acts in judicial activities, contributing to building unblemished, strong, effective judicial agencies, thus strengthening people's beliefs in justice, Ngan said.
At the same time, the sector needs to coordinate with the People's Supreme Court, the Ministry of Public Security, the Ministry of Justice and relevant agencies to promptly guide the enforcement of laws, especially the Criminal Code, the Criminal Procedure Code, the law on the organisation of criminal investigation agency.
In 2018, the People’s Procuracy at all levels detected and prosecuted 320 criminal cases.
In addition, a series of solutions have been implemented to improve the investigation and handling of criminal cases. Enhancing inspection quality in other judicial activities has been prioritised as well.
