On May 20, State President Truong Tan Sang worked with the judiciary sector of the northern province of Thai Nguyen on judiciary reform under the Politburo’s Resolution No 49.
After six years of implementing the resolution on judiciary reform through 2020, the operational efficiency of Thai Nguyen’s judiciary sector has improved remarkably with 90 percent of cases being dealt with strictly and according to the law. The local police force has also been successful in raiding a number of criminal organizations.
However, limitations still remain such as poor coordination between the judiciary sector and State agencies and a lack of uniform legal documents and qualified judicial staff.
In his speech, President Sang praised the sector’s efforts to overcome difficulties as well as its contributions to ensuring security in the province. He asked leaders from the police, the procuracy and the courts to work out specific solutions related to standards for investigators, procurators and judges in order to create synchronous training of staff for the sector.
The same day, President Sang and his delegation visited Military Zone No1 located in six northeastern provinces.
Lieutenant General Be Xuan Truong briefed Mr Sang on his command's activities regarding national security and military exercises. The President spoke highly of the efforts the Military Zone soldiers have made to perform their tasks in defending national sovereignty and maintaining political and social stability to boost socio-economic development.
Earlier on May 19, President Sang and other Party and State leaders attended a ceremony to mark the 65th year since President Ho Chi Minh arrived in the Dinh Hoa safety zone in Thai Nguyen province to lead the resistance war against the French colonialists. The event also celebrated Ho Chi Minh's 122nd birthday anniversary.
Thai Nguyen was one of the three northern mountainous provinces selected by President Ho to establish revolutionary bases in the war against the French.
On May 20, 1947, the President arrived at the Dinh Hoa district safety zone, which was subsequently set up as the Party and Government headquarters.
Many important policies and decisions were made in this “top secret" place including decisions to launch the autumn-winter campaign of 1947 and the border campaign in 1950, as well as the famous Dien Bien Phu battle in 1954.
Sixty three communes in Thai Nguyen were recognized as safety zones during the war. The Dinh Hoa safety zone alone has 128 historical revolutionary relic sites that witnessed major changes during the period.
On the occasion, the Dinh Hoa safety zone was honoured as a special national relic site, once again affirming the unique position and role of Dinh Hoa during the resistance war for national liberation.
The celebration offered a chance to review the nation’s revolutionary history and raise national pride in the glorious tradition of the Party, the provincial Party Committee and people nationwide, while consolidating confidence and resolve to uphold and develop that tradition in the new period, Mr Sang said
Over the past 30 years, Thai Nguyen has recorded tremendous achievements in socio-economic development to become one of the main economic, cultural, educational and training centres in the northern mountainous region.
The State leader said he hopes the province will continue to overcome all difficulties and challenges to successfully meet the set targets for national development./.
