Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych has signed a law that allows the withdrawal of petitions and appeals from the courts prior to their consideration, the president’s press service reported on Friday.
The Ukrainian parliament passed the law on September 8, 2011.
According to the law, a person who files an appeal has the right to supplement or amend it within the term allotted for appellate review, while substantiating the need for such changes or additions. A person who files an appeal has the right to revoke it prior to the case's consideration by the courts or the appellate instance, and the other party has the right to recognize the appeal as being substantiated in full or partially.
If an appeal is withdrawn from a court, the judge who prepared the case for a hearing, issues a ruling to return the appeal.
The repeated appealing with the same reasons in courts of first instance is not allowed.
The similar requirements of the law concern the withdrawal or amendments to the appeals.
