b. Other useful information

In case of incoming letters of request two remedies are possible against seizure orders: the review and opposition. In case of outgoing letters of request, restitution may be sought from the Public Prosecutor (for measures ordered in the preliminary investigation stage) and opposition from the Pre-trial Investigation Judge in case of refusal. Furthermore, the Court of Cassation has admitted resort to a review even in this case as a letter of request does imply a tacit seizure order.
