Civil Party deposit (Consignation de Partie Civile)
Explanation:
A Briefing Paper entitled "Universal Jurisdiction Law and Practice in France" offers the following: When the civil party petition has been received by an investigating judge, the
latter will set the amount of the deposit (consignation) that should be paid by the
civil party, if he or she does not obtain legal aid. This deposit should be paid at
the registry within the time frame set by the judge, otherwise the complaint will
be inadmissible. The investigating judge may exempt the civil party from the
deposit." Perhaps "arret No. 2" refers to the decision that determined the amount of the deposit.
