On March 18, the Permanent Commission of the General Council of the Judiciary has agreed that, as long as the state of alarm is maintained, it is not appropriate to present procedural documents in person «in any case», limiting to electronic form (LexNET or equivalent systems in Navarra, Aragon, Cantabria, Catalonia and the Basque Country) to those whose sole and exclusive purpose is procedural actions declared urgent and which cannot be postponed under the instructions and agreements of the governing body of the judges.

The agreement specifies, however, that the suspension of procedural terms does not prevent, in accordance with section 4 of the aforementioned additional provision, the adoption of those judicial actions “that are necessary to avoid irreparable damage to the legitimate rights and interests of the parties in the process ”, so that said suspension does not reach the presentation of pledges  that are linked to urgent and necessary legal actions.
