Answer ... If proceedings are initiated before the state courts, the interested party must point out the existence of the arbitration agreement within the term for responding to the claim. If an objection is made, the state court is obliged to terminate the proceedings if there is a valid and relevant arbitration agreement.
Answer ... The arbitration award may be set aside by the Supreme Court of Cassation (see question 41).
The courts may:
- impose interim relief measures;
- collect evidence for the arbitration proceedings;
- review challenges to arbitrator appointments; and
- issue decisions on the enforcement of foreign arbitral awards.
Answer ... No, the powers of the court may not be excluded by agreement.
