Constitutional review of an unspecified act of the public authority

Case No. KI 33/20


KI33/20. Applicant: Jovan Gužvić, Constitutional review of an unspecified act of the public authority

KI33/20, Decision to reject the Referral of 10 February 2021, published on 2 March 2021

Keywords: individual referral, incomplete referral, decision for rejection

The Applicant had not challenged any concrete act of any public authority and had not specifically and comprehensibly clarified which fundamental rights and freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution have allegedly been violated by any act of a public authority. He addressed the Court with some documents/allegations which did not explain and nor have specified his allegations of constitutional violation.

In view of the fact that the Applicant’s Referral was incomplete, the Court requested the Applicant to: (i) complete the official Referral form; (ii) specify the acts of the public authorities which he challenges; (iii) specifically clarify his allegations of violations of the rights guaranteed by the Constitution; (iv) submit copies of documents and other information supporting his allegations. The Applicant submitted some additional documents which did not address the requests of the documents of the Court.

Consequently, the Court found that the Applicant’s Referral does not meet the procedural criteria for further consideration, due to its incompletion with supporting documentation, as required by Articles 48 and 22.4 of the Law on the Constitutional Court and Rule 35 (5) of the Rules of Procedure of the Court, and decided that the Referral is rejected summarily.
