He also asked the VLF to focus on protecting national sovereignty and legitimate interests of citizens; taking part in complaint and denunciation settlement, particularly cases of protracted and mass complaints; and counter-firing wrong arguments of hostile forces.
The VLF was also tasked to pay more attention to the popularization of legal documents and international cooperation.
VLF Chairman Le Thuc Anh reported that the Federation has undertaken the role to gather Vietnamese lawyers and served as a bridge to connect the Party, State and the lawyer circle over the last three years following its establishment in 2009.
Especially, the Federation has made active contributions to judiciary reform, building of law-governed state, administrative reform among others.
