Vietnam shares anti-corruption experience at international conference in Havana

VOV.VN - A delegation of the Supreme People's Procuracy of Vietnam, led by Nguyen Huy Tien, permanent deputy prosecutor general, attended the 15th International Meeting on Criminal Science and the third conference on the rule of law, law and society, which ran from March 15 to March 17 in the Cuban capital of Havana.

In his presentation, Tien emphasised that corruption is a negative social phenomenon that continues to exists in many countries globally, adding that the scale of these types of crimes is expanding, with methods becoming increasingly sophisticated, thereby causing damage to the State’s property.

The official affirmed that the Communist Party and the Government of Vietnam are determined that the fight against corruption is an important, urgent, and complicated task that plays a vital role in terms of the construction and development of the country.

He therefore suggested promoting institutional building, strengthening power control mechanisms, perfecting the legal system by closing loopholes and fixing inadequacies in legal regulations, as well as ensuring that rules are compatible with the development of the market economy.

It can be viewed as essential to review and issue regulations relating to publicity and transparency of assets and income, along with adopting solutions to limit the use of cash in economic and civil transactions, thereby contributing to the handling of corruption and economic crimes, he added.

The Vietnamese official pointed out that international solidarity and co-operation can therefore serve as an important foundation for mutual development and building a just and civilized world.

The International Meeting on Criminal Science is an annual activity hosted by Cuba. Indeed, the event has become a prestigious forum in Latin America to exchange experiences on anti-criminal policies, with the function featuring the participation of a large number of prosecutors, lawyers, judges, forensic doctors, professors, and leading researchers.

During its stay in Cuba, the Vietnamese delegation held talks with Yamila Peña Ojeda, head of the Cuban Supreme People’s Procuracy, and the Russian delegation on the sidelines of the event.
