Law amending and supplementing the Criminal Procedure Code of Vietnam
Bảo Ngọc

On November 12, 2021, the National Assembly of Vietnam promulgated Law No. 02/2021/QH15 amending and supplementing a number of articles of the Criminal Procedure Code.

According to the new law, additional authority for the commune police in receiving denunciations and reports of crimes and petitions for prosecution is as follows:

Police of communes, wards, townships, and police stations shall receive denunciations and reports of crimes, make a record of receipt, conduct preliminary examination and verification, and immediately transfer denunciations and reports to crimes and related documents object to the competent investigating agency.

Previously, the commune police were responsible for receiving denunciations and reports of crimes, making a record of receipt, taking initial testimonies, and immediately transferring denunciations and reports on crimes together with documents and maps related items to the competent investigating authority.

Thus, the new regulation allows the commune police to conduct preliminary inspections and verification in receiving denunciations and information about crimes.

In addition, supplementing the case of temporarily suspending the settlement of denunciations and information about crimes, and proposing to prosecute when:

Unable to finish the examination and verification to decide to prosecute or not to prosecute the case due to force majeure due to natural disasters or epidemics.

For details, see the Law amending and supplementing the Criminal Procedure Code of Vietnam, effective from December 1, 2021.
