The Party leader asked the agencies to focus on making Vietnam’s judicial system more professional and modern to serve the nation and the people. He said all internal affairs should uphold President Ho Chi Minh’s spirit of taking the people as the root, keep close contact with the people, help the people and learn from them, believe them and respect their right of mastery. He said that in any circumstances, internal affairs agencies need to put the people’s interests first.
