Suspension of Legal and Judicial Times

The General Provisions applying to the Suspension of Legal and Judicial Times Regulations (LN 141 of 2020) were published on 9 April 2020.

Following the publication of the Closure of the Courts of Justice Order, these regulations suspend the running of any time periods specified under any substantive or procedural law, decreed or otherwise ordered by any court, government department, government agency or public authority and those established in any agreement (whether a private writing or a public deed), subject to any conditions specified.
This suspension applies to, inter alia:
  • the running of any period within which a notary public must pay taxes collected by him in the exercise of his profession; and
  • the running of any time period related to fiscal benefits, incentives or exemptions.
