Faults due to inconsistency by omission and criminal cassation appeals: interpretation


The reform implemented by Organic Law 19/2003 (LA LEY 1959/2003) modified the original wording of Article 267 of the Spanish Law on the Judiciary (LA LEY 1694/1985) and created a more complete and detailed text in which the possibilities of modifying a judgement or court order which has already been issued, either ex officio or upon the request of a party, were broadened. It ended with a brief reference to the possibility of clarifying obscure concepts, mere omissions, manifest material or arithmetical errors that the provision anticipated. This appeared to be an attempt to fulfill the ideal of “speed, efficiency and quality” sought by the State Pact for the Reform of Justice which was signed by the main political parties a couple of years ago.
