Explanatory note

The amendment aims at avoiding a possible conflict with the obligations arising from treaties in matters of judicial cooperation (e.g. the Convention of 30 October 2007 on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters – Lugano Convention) and in EU countries a conflict with the provisions of EU regulations.
