Cuban Supreme Court president visits Luang Prabang province

Vientiane, Nov 17 (Prensa Latina) Cuban People’s Supreme Court (TSP) President Rubén Remigio Ferro continues his three-day visit to Laos on Friday with a working visit to the Luang Prabang province.

Located some 425 kilometers north of this city, Luang Prabang is famous for its many Buddhist temples and became the country’s first capital until 1975.

Considered the major tourist destination in Laos, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) declared Luang Prabang a World Heritage Site in 1995.

Remigio Ferro and his companions visited the Provincial and District 1 People’s Courts, toured places of interest such as the Ban Xang Khong-Ban Xieng Lek Traditional Handicraft Center, and met with Khamkhun Chanthavisouk, Governor and member of the Central Committee of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party.

The Cuban jurists’ delegation will return to Vientiane on Saturday to visit the Food and Drug Research Center at the Ministry of Health before leaving for Vietnam.

On Thursday, the TSP president and his counterpart, Viengthong Siphandon, held a bilateral meeting between the Supreme Courts of the two countries, and later, the visitor paid a courtesy visit to National Assembly President Saysomphone Phomvihane.
