Summary/Abstract: By amendment to the CPC, made in 2015, entrusted appellate courts with the power in re-opening of criminal cases on the ground of art. 422, par. 1, p. 5 CPC for juridical acts, rendered by the regional court or by the district court as an appellate instance, except for new verdicts. The proceedings before the appellate court does not have any features that distinguish it from the proceedings of re-opening before the Supreme Court of Cassation on the same ground. In both cases it is „quasi cassation“ for acts, subject to verification, according to art. 419 CPC.
