Written Statements of Witnesses in Civil and Arbitration Proceedings

According to positive regulations in the Republic of Serbia, each party shall present the facts and propose the evidence on which it bases its request or with which it disputes the allegations and evidence of the opponent.

In both civil and arbitration procedures, the most commonly used forms of evidence are documents and testimonies. The article focuses on the written statements of witnesses, which serve as a substitute for direct examination of witnesses.

Ivana Petkovic, a Senior Associate, and Dimitrije Stepanovic, an Associate, have prepared an article (in Serbian and English languages) highlighting the importance of presenting facts and evidence in accordance with the positive regulations of the Republic of Serbia.

This alternative method was introduced in 2011 by the Civil Procedure Law of Serbia, aiming to enhance the efficiency of legal proceedings.
