Article 199. Application of limitation.
1. The requirement to protect the violated right shall be considered by the court regardless of the expiration of the limitation period. 2. The limitation of actions shall be applied by the court only upon the application of the party to the dispute made before the court rendered the decision. The expiration of the limitation period, the application of which is declared by the party to the dispute, is the basis for the court to make a decision to dismiss the lawsuit.
