ILSTA in cooperation with the People’s Supreme Court organised a consultation workshop on the Presidential Decree on Administrative Case Proceedings, on 9-10 of July 2019. Heads of legal departments from all Lao ministries were invited to comment on this important decree.
The establishment of an administrative jurisdiction provides a means of settling disputes between the State, its administration and the public. It is an important step of the Lao government’s ambition of becoming state governed by the rule of law. The administrative procedure decree underlines the importance of an impartial and independent judiciary.
