The state of emergency due to the COVID 19 was declared in Serbia on 15 March 2020.

In order to protect the rights of the parties in court proceedings, on 20 March 2020 the Government of the Republic of Serbia adopted the Regulation on Deadlines in Court Proceedings During the State of Emergency Declared on 15 March 2020 (“Regulation”). The subject of this Regulation are the following court proceedings: litigation, criminal proceedings initiated with private lawsuit, non-contentious, enforcement and court-administrative proceedings, as well as proceedings initiated with constitutional appeal.

The Regulation provides that as of 15 March 2020 the deadlines for filing lawsuits, appeals, motions for initiating proceedings and for undertaking all other procedural actions shall be suspended for the duration of the state of emergency.

In addition, the same suspension applies for deadlines for filing appeals and extraordinary legal remedies to decisions ending criminal, misdemeanor, commercial-misdemeanor proceedings.

Should you require any additional information or clarification of the course of ongoing proceedings during the state of emergency please do not hesitate to contact us.
