The Judicial Reform Strategy under Resolution No. 49 dated June 2, 2005 of the Party Central Committee has identified: “…reform of administrative procedures in judicial agencies to create favorable conditions for people to access justice…”. Moreover, in Plan No. 122/BCS dated December 26, 2005, the Supreme People’s Court Party Committee also identified: “reform of court administrative procedures is undertaken under the way that is open/public, simple and convenient for citizens to exercise their rights to take legal action at courts. When a person takes a legal action at court, this court shall determine the agency which has jurisdiction of settling the case, then transfer the files and notify the petitioners thereof; moreover, courts should publish the procedures for accessing the files, supplying documents and information, extracting the judgements or decisions of courts according to applicable laws”.
