Hanoi, March 14 (VNA) – Chief Judge of the Supreme People’s Court Truong Hoa Binh emphasised the need to strengthen Party leadership on anti-corruption work and improve court laws in order to increase the quality of judgments on corruption.

Speaking at a conference summing up the 10-year implementation of the Law on Corruption Prevention and Control, Binh said the Supreme People’s Court has carried out the law and the Party’s resolutions in the fight against corruption.

Considering it a complicated struggle, the court instructed lower courts to strictly follow the law.

According to a report on the implementation of the law from October 1, 2005 to September 30, 2015, courts handled 4,323 cases related to corruption with 11,081 defendants involved.

The Law on Corruption Prevention and Control was approved at the eighth sitting of the 11th National Assembly on November 29, 2005. It comprises eight chapters and 92 articles.

Revisions and supplements to the 2005 law were made in 2007 and 2012.
