The Court of Appeal

During the revision of a controversial case, individuals and legal organizations may apply to the Court of Appeal. The appellate court supervises the legality of the criminal, civil and administrative proceedings.

The main functions of the Court of Appeal:

• it checks the legal basis and the evidence base in controversial matters;

• it has the right to a full review of the case and making its own decisions.

At a resolution of the controversial issues of civil, administrative and criminal nature, the verdict of the Appeal Court is binding.

If necessary, the Court of Appeal directly examines the evidence and makes its decision, which can both prove and cancel the decision, taken by the Court of the First Instance.
