A round-table conference on preventing and combating trans-national crime was held by the Supreme People’s Procuracy and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) in Hanoi on November 26.
Delegates discussed in depth the links between corruption and organised trans-national crime, the implementation of prosecution rights, and the supervision over investigations into corruption cases.
They agreed that corruption will develop in a complicated manner in the near future so the fight against the scourge should be involved by the whole society.
They also agreed that the legal system on preventing and combating corruption should be further improved and law dissemination should be stepped up to raise public awareness about corruption.
The UNODC said it will continue to support relevant Vietnamese agencies and organisations with experience in corruption prevention and combat, personnel training, and anti-corruption policies.
According to the Crime Statistics Department under the Supreme People’s Procuracy, the law enforcement agencies nationwide had prosecuted 505 corruption cases with 1,101 involved people between October 1, 2013 and September 30, 2015.
