In June, Poland’s lower house of parliament passed a draft bill introducing a statute of limitations on claims for the restitution of property. According to the new Code of Administrative Procedure, courts may consider appeals regarding administrative decisions on the property only if they were made within the previous 30 years. This solution was instructed by Polish Constitutional Court 6 years ago. The provisions are primarily to block wild property restitution.
According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, “the introduction of time limits… will lead to the elimination of abuses and irregularities that, to a large extent, took place in the re-privatisation processes.”
The Ministry also pointed out that the new law does not restrict the possibility of bringing civil actions for compensation, regardless of the nationality or origin of the claimant.
