  REVIEW PROCEDURE
 
  Re-examination of a case in connection with the review of a decision may be requested by the defendant on the basis of Article 19 of the Regulation by submitting an application:

    1) with regard to the review of a judgment or decision by a district (city district) Court - to the relevant regional Court;
    2) with regard to the review of a judgment or decision by a regional Court - to the Chamber of Civil Cases of the Supreme Court;
    3) with regard to the review of a judgment or decision by a chamber of the Supreme Court - to the Department of Civil Cases of the Senate of the Supreme Court;


An application may not be made if the period in which the enforcement document concerning the relevant ruling may be submitted for enforcement has expired.


When considering an application, a Court examines whether the circumstances indicated by the applicant may be deemed circumstances warranting the review of the ruling pursuant to Article 19 of the Regulation. If the Court finds that the circumstances warrant a review of the ruling, it rescinds the contested ruling in foil and refers the matter for re-examination to the Court of first instance. If the Court deems that the circumstances indicated in the application are not to be considered as warranting the review of the ruling, it rejects the application. An ancillary complaint may be made with regard to the Court's ruling.
