How to file an appeal?

The appeal addressed to the Constitutional Court shall be sent by mail or hand-delivered directly to the Constitutional Court.

Subject to certain requirements, an appeal and other submissions may be sent electronically, by e-mail. For more information about electronic communication, please see the e-communication on the website of the Constitutional Court.

A copy of the contested decision/judgment and decisions/judgements rendered in the respective proceedings should be attached to the appeal.

The appeal and attachments thereto should be hand-delivered/submitted in one copy. For the purpose of documents scanning, the submitted documents should neither be stapled nor copied double-sided. All other attachments are to be submitted at the request of the Constitutional Court. The original documents should not be attached to the appeal, as they will be destroyed after a certain period.

The appeal shall be submitted by filling in a specific form available in the Constitutional Court or on the website of the Constitutional Court. The form shall make an integral part of these Rules. It shall be mandatory to submit the appeal by typing the text on either a computer or a typewriter (Article 20 and Article 21 of the Rules).
