UN Recommendations on the 2015 Penal Code and Criminal Procedural Code of Viet Nam

Beyond the specific recommendations provided about some selected provisions of the Codes, a general recommendation would be to review the Penal Code to ensure that aggravating and mitigating factors for sentencing be strictly limited to those recognized by international standards and free from any kind of discrimination.
