Nhan Dan - The National Assembly Standing Committee (NASC), presided by NA Deputy Chairman Uong Chu Luu, continued its seventh session on April 16 by discussing the Draft Law on Judicial Assessment.
A majority of deputies agreed that more qualified people need to be involved in legal assessments to ensure the rights of both individuals and organisations are protected in civil and administrative proceedings, which is consistent with the spirit of judicial reform under Resolution No.49/NQ-T.U.
It was recommended that forensic examinations should be conducted by the relevant centres under provincial health departments instead of by provincial police forensic teams.
However, some delegates said that the police forensic teams should not be eliminated, adding that forensic examinations are a major part of the investigation process. They said that police forensic teams should still be invloved in forensic examinations to ensure confidentiality and consistency during the examinations and investigations.
The NASC also gave opinions on the draft law on libraries the same day.
