Goltsblat BLP advises that a loss recovery dispute with a constituent entity of the Russian Federation has been successfully completed
Legal Update No.434, 25 September 2013
Goltsblat BLP advises of
publication of Information Letter No. 159 by the Supreme Commercial Court of the
Russian Federation (the “Court”), dated 18 June 2013, titled “On the Procedure
for Issuing Writs of Execution under Effective Judicial Acts if Relevant
Materials are with Higher Courts”.
In its Information Letter the Court
specifies that cases no longer need to be passed from higher to first instance
courts for writs of execution to be issued. Further, writs of execution may be
issued before case materials are returned by the higher court where the relevant
case has been re-considered. This has become possible owing to the successful
operation of the automated Arbitration Case Catalogue Filing system hosted on
the Court’s website.
In order to obtain a writ of
execution, a relevant request should be filed with the first instance
arbitration court considering the case, attaching copies of all resolutions
issued on the case and duly certified by the relevant higher courts.
If discrepancies are identified
between the copies of the judicial acts submitted by the recoverer and the
electronic versions posted on the Arbitration Case Catalogue Filing system, the
court may deny a writ of execution until the court case, and accompanying
original judicial acts, is received by the first instance arbitration
