Article 204. The limitation period in the case of abandonment of the claim.
If the lawsuit is left without consideration by the court, then the period of limitation of actions that began before the filing of the lawsuit proceeds in a general manner. If a court leaves the lawsuit filed in a criminal case without consideration, the course of the limitation period, which began before the lawsuit was filed, is suspended until the verdict, which the lawsuit was left without consideration, comes into force; the time during which the prescription was suspended shall not be counted in the period of limitation. Moreover, if the remaining part of the term is less than six months, it is extended to six months.
