Article 1134. Executor of the will.
1. The testator may entrust the execution of a will to a citizen - executor (will executor) specified by him in the will regardless of whether this citizen is the heir. The consent of the citizen to be the executor of the will is expressed by this citizen in his handwritten inscription on the will itself, or in a statement attached to the will, or in a statement filed to the notary within one month from the date of opening the inheritance. A citizen is also recognized to have given his consent to be the executor of the will if he, in the course of one month from the date of the opening of the inheritance, actually proceeded to execute the will. 2. After the opening of the inheritance, the court may release the executor of the will from his duties both at the request of the executor of the will and at the request of the heirs in the presence of circumstances preventing the performance of these duties by the citizen.
