Coordination in supervising complaint settlement reviewed

The Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) Central Committee held a meeting with relevant agencies in Hanoi on April 9 to review their coordination in supervising the settlement of complaints and denunciations at the grassroots level.

There are 15 participating provinces and cities in the coordination programme, including Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City as well as Quang Ninh, Ha Tinh, Binh Thuan and Kon Tum province, reported the programme’s steering board.

The Government Inspectorate, the Ministry of Justice, the Vietnam Lawyers Association, the Vietnam Bar Federation and their provincial bodies have actively proposed complicated complaint and denunciation cases for supervision, popularised legal regulations on complaints and denunciations, reinforced grassroots conciliation teams and strengthened free legal aid provision, the board noted.

VFF President Nguyen Thien Nhan said the settlement of complaints and denunciations receives the special attention of the Party, State and people, adding that the supervision coordination among agencies has been implemented actively with a high sense of responsibility.

He asked the steering board to urge other provinces to join the coordination programme.

Meanwhile, the 15 participating localities need to enhance the supply of legal assistance while the Government Inspectorate and relevant agencies should increase exchanges of information and experience in handling complaints and denunciations, he added.

The VFF is a political alliance and a voluntary union of political organisations, socio-political organisations, social organisations and prominent individuals representing their class, social strata, ethnicity or religion as well as overseas Vietnamese.

It is responsible for creating social consensus; contributing to building a strong Party and administration through social supervision and criticism; and developing relations between the people of Vietnam and other nations around the world.-
