Case number:
Challenged act:
Operative provisions:
The Supreme Court violated the complainant's right to make a statement determined by Article 22 of the Constitution due to the fact that when deciding on the appeal it failed to consider the supplemental brief to the appeal, which the complainant sent on time as registered mail from a postal service point.   
The Civil Procedure Act must be interpreted in such a manner that the day of sending an item of registered mail at a service station of a commercial company that constitutes a postal service point according to the Postal Services Act is deemed as the day of delivery at the court.
The disregard of the supplemental brief to the appeal is in itself incompatible with the principles of a fair trial and violates the right of the complainant to the equal protection of rights in proceedings, therefore it is not relevant whether such supplemental brief containing substantive arguments could lead to a different decision of the Supreme Court in the case at issue.
