“The judiciary must focus on dealing with high-profile cases, especially corruption scandals”, said President Nguyen Minh Triet, who is also Head of the Central Committee on Judicial Reforms, at the meeting with the People’s Supreme Court leaders on Wednesday.

Chief Justice of the People’s Supreme Court Nguyen Van Hien briefed the President on some results of judicial reforms as well as difficulties and drawbacks of the judiciary.

While commending the achievements made by the judicial sector over the past 61 years, President Nguyen Minh Triet said it should continuously improve the quality of its judgments to remain objective and rigorous in implementing the judicial process.

He also told the judiciary to ensure democracy at hearings and be open to opinions in order to deliver sound verdicts.

The courts should focus mainly on personnel training, he said, adding that judges must be professional and ethical.
