Vietnam, Cuba to bolster justice co-operation

VOV.VN - A delegation from the Supreme People's Court of Vietnam led by Deputy Chief Justice Nguyen Van Du paid an official visit to Cuba from May 18 to May 21 to promote bilateral professional relations and attend the 10th International Conference on Justice and Law of Cuba.

During a meeting held with Chief Justice of the Supreme People's Court of Cuba Rubén Remigio Ferro, Deputy Chief Justice Du reviewed bilateral co-operation in both nations' court sector and other major activities of the Vietnamese court system in recent years. This includes reviewing the increase in the publicity of judgments, improving the quality of judicial services for the people, and modernising facilities.

Deputy Chief Justice Du noted that in the overall long-term judicial reform strategy, the Vietnamese State aims to strengthen citizens character in judicial activities, improve the capacity of judges, develop e-courts, and intensify international exchanges.

In response, Chief Justice Rubén Remigio Ferro touched upon orientations aimed at modernising the Cuban court system, especially in the field of digitalisation, and pointed out a number of coincidences in the process of revamping the two countries' judicial systems.

Showing a keen interest in the experience of judicial mediation in Vietnam, Comrade Rubén Remigio Ferro suggested enhancing professional exchanges or organising seminars as a way of better exploiting the similarities between the two countries.

As part of this occasion, Deputy Chief Justice Du presented a symbolic gift of laptops from the Supreme People's Court of Vietnam to Cuban partners.

The International Conference on Justice and Law of Cuba is viewed as a venue for scientific exchanges of outstanding judicial topics, with the participation of many prestigious scholars, judges, jurists, and researchers both in Cuba and globally.

During the course of their visit to Cuba, the delegation of the Supreme People's Court of Vietnam attended the flower offering ceremony to celebrate the 132nd birthday of President Ho Chi Minh (May 19, 1890 - May 19, 2022) at Peace Park located in Havana.
