Myanmar delegation led by Union Minister for Legal Affairs Union Attorney-General Dr Thida Oo attended the 11th St. Petersburg International Legal Forum held in the Russian Federation from 11 to 13 May at the invitation of Russian Minister of Justice Mr Konstantin A Chuychenko.
The Ministry of Legal Affairs of Myanmar and the Ministry of Justice of Russia made a Memorandum of Cooperation during the period of the 11th St Petersburg International Legal Forum. The Ministry of Legal Affairs has signed two proposed Memorandum of Cooperation with the Russian Prosecutor-General Office and the Ministry of Justice.
During the forum, the Union minister said the ministry is working on the 2020-2024 Strategic Plan with five objectives under the name of “Legal Services for Justice”. Of these objectives, cooperating with world countries and international organizations is included. The Memorandum of Cooperation will be inked between the Ministry of Legal Affairs of Myanmar and the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation during the period of the 11th St Petersburg International Legal Forum.
Under the topic of Interaction between Ministries of Justice: New Trends and Approaches, the Union minister said the ministry conducted training sessions for legal officers and their qualifications and skills are recorded in the digital system. Only one country cannot prevent cybercrime, digital crimes and human trafficking but with cooperation with other countries. Therefore, international cooperation is crucial. Despite the different legal systems, languages, political policies and cultures, it can cooperate through domestic laws, international agreements and justice organizations.
She added that Myanmar follows the ASEAN Charter and works closely with ASEAN member countries. The Ministry of Legal Affairs also participates and discusses ASEAN legal affairs and criminal law in ASEAN Law Ministers’ Meeting (ALAWMM) and ASEAN Senior Law Official Meeting (ASLOM). The ministry also signed a Memorandum of Cooperation with the Russian Prosecutor-General Office and worked together with the Prosecutor-General Office of Laos in criminal law as well as with the Ministry of Law of Singapore.—MNA/KTZH
