A declaration of appeal against a decision of the First Chamber must be lodged in writing with the Appeals Chamber, within three days of the issuance of the reasoned decision of the First Chamber.
Within five days of the expiry of the time limit for the declaration of appeal, the appellant must file the written grounds for appeal. These must contain an account of the facts and the legal arguments invoked by the appellant, evidence and the appellant’s conclusions.
Substantial new facts or evidence submitted by an appellant before the Appeals Chamber may be excluded by the latter, at its discretion, if they were available to or could reasonably have been discovered by the appellant and were not adduced by the latter before the appealed decision was passed.
The appellant is not authorised to produce further written submissions after the deadline for filing the grounds for appeal.
