President Sang calls for better sentence enforcement

Hanoi, July 29 (VNA) – President Truong Tan Sang, who is also Head of the Central Steering Committee on Judicial Reform, called on relevant agencies to devise effective measures to accelerate and supervise the enforcement of civil judgements.

During his working session with representatives of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Internal Affairs, the Supreme People’s Court, the Supreme People’s Procuracy, the Ministry of Public Security and the Ministry of Justice (MoJ), Sang also emphasised supervising individual assets and recovering assets in major corruption cases.

He pointed out that one of Vietnam’s biggest legal loopholes is that the country has yet to issue a law on asset declaration that leads to the ineffective supervision of individual assets.

He urged legislative and executive agencies to study worldwide asset management models to recommend legal regulations in management as well as judgement enforcement.

He noted that in order to make civil judgment enforcement more effective, it is essential to have close coordination between the enforcement agency and relevant agencies and between the central and local governments.

According to the MoJ, from October 2014 to June 2015, the civil judgement enforcement system handled 354,992 cases and recovered 31.5 trillion VND (1.44 billion USD), equal to 68.53 percent in terms of cases and 44.78 percent in terms of capital recovered.
