On 15 September 2015 Swedish Ambassador Camilla Mellander was given honourable recognition: she received a medal and certificate of merit from Mr Truong Hoa Binh, Chief Justice of the Supreme People’s Court of Vietnam for her active contribution in the building and development cause for People’s Court in Vietnam. The ceremony took place on the occasion of 70th anniversary of the Vietnamese Judiciary.
Sweden has been participating in developing the judiciary by supporting the Justice Partnership Program for many years. The Swedish embassy in Vietnam has been doing this together with Denmark and the EU-delegation, and the program ran until June 2015 with a budget of 18.7 million Euro, which made it the largest of its kind in Vietnam.
