President U Win Myint met with Union Chief Justice U Htun Htun Oo and Supreme Court Justices at the Presidential Palace in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday at 2 p.m.
During the meeting, the President discussed the work that needs to be accomplished to firmly establish the judiciary sector.
President U Win Myint also called for the conducting of responsible management at all levels, from the region and state to the township level.
The President further said there needs to be stricter regulations in maintaining court evidence, as loss and damage costs must be paid through the national budget.
He noted that greater amounts of foreign investment will flow into the country and the country’s economy will develop only when there is rule of law and the country is free from corruption.
President U Win Myint said that skilled and truly capable persons must be assigned positions in the judiciary to strengthen the sector. He noted that the Chief Justice has the responsibility to strengthen the entire country’s judiciary sector and to properly guide judiciary officials at the state and regional level.
President U Win Myint urged Union Chief Justice U Htun Htun Oo and Supreme Court judges to work to strengthen the judiciary sector with the help and support of organisations that provide legal aid and rule of law centres.
Union Chief Justice U Htun Htun Oo briefed the President about the judiciary processes, management of court evidence, challenges faced by courts, responsibilities taken by the Supreme Court of the Union, the number of court proceedings being conducted, and the status of reforming the organisational structure for employees.
Also present at the meeting were Deputy Minister for the President’s Office U Min Thu, as well as Supreme Court Judges U Thar Htay, U Mya Thein, U Myint Aung, U Aung Zaw Thein, U Mya Han, U Myo Tint, U Soe Naing, and U Khin Maung Kyi. —Myanmar News Agency
