NDO/VNA – The supreme courts of Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia held the fifth court conference of border provinces to discuss crime prevention work and the settlement of trans-border civil cases.

Attending the event were Chief Justice of the Supreme People’s Court of Vietnam Nguyen Hoa Binh, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Cambodia Dith Munty, and Chief Justice of the Lao Supreme People’s Court Khamphanh Sithidampha.

They shared the view that since the first conference, held in Vietnam in 2010, cooperation in the settlement of civil and criminal cases among the three countries’ supreme and local courts has been strengthened, especially in border localities.

They agreed that all three courts will seek effective measures to improve their capacity, effectively deal with civil disputes, and combat transnational crimes.

The conference featured three sessions, focusing on the review of the implementation of the fourth conference’s joint statement held in Nha Trang in 2016, experience in dealing with trans-border crimes and support mechanisms in the field, and the settlement of trans-border civil cases.

A joint statement will be issued at the closing session on December 15.

The first and fourth conferences were held in Vietnam, while the second and the fifth were held in Cambodia, and the third in Laos.

The sixth edition of its kind is due to take place in Laos.
