Spanish term or phrase: recurso de reforma vs. apelación (see question)
This is a criminal case in Spain it is saying that against the resolution:
cabe interponer 'recurso de reforma' en el plazo de tres días ante este Juzgado o 'el de apelación' en el plazo de cinco días...
What is the difference between these types of appeal and is there a different name for each one of them in English?
Many thanks for any help!
