Limitations and Admissibility of Submitting Evidence at the Appellate Instance

Submission and assessment of evidence is one of the elements of the right to a fair trial, which must be ensured when reviewing a case in the court of first instance, as well as in cases provided for by law and to a certain extent in the appeal instance. Submission of evidence at the appeal instance is permitted only in exceptional cases, and under the condition that its non-submission at the first instance did not depend on the will of the parties to the case. Studying court practice shows that it is currently not possible to change the existing regulation of the law and refuse to present new evidence at the appeal instance. This would leave an undesirable impression on the court’s duty to find a more correct and fair solution to disputes, as well as violate the rights of persons to a fair trial.
