The plaintiff was a legal entity performing business activities in the field of insurance.
The plaintiff claimed infringement of its fundamental rights set forth by the Slovak Constitution - Article 46 (1) and Article 48 (2) and the Declaration of Fundamental Rights and Freedoms.
The plaintiff has concluded an insurance contract with the obliged party. The obliged party ("Insured") did not fulfil its obligation to pay the insurance fee as agreed in the insurance contract and stopped making payments to the plaintiff.
In accordance with the arbitration clause included in the contract, the plaintiff has brought the case before the Arbitration Court in Košice, which has issued an arbitral award stating that the Insured is obliged to pay the outstanding amount of EUR 17,22 together with interest.
As the Insured did not pay the outstanding amount nor the interest, the plaintiff has initiated the enforcement of the arbitral award. The District Court has dismissed the motion and the plaintiff has appealed to the Regional Court which has confirmed the decision of the District Court.
Finally, the plaintiff has brought the case before the court, claiming the infringement of its fundamental rights, as well as that it did not have the chance to express its opinion to the evidence presented to the court as the District Court issued a decision and did not open a proceeding in its matter.
The plaintiff asked the courtto issue a decision stating that its fundamental rights were infringed by the District, Regional Court and to dismiss these decisions.
