Operative provisions:
Art. 72.2 of the Denationalization Act is not inconsistent with the Constitution.
The challenged provision of Art. 72.2 of the Denationalization Act can be interpreted by means of interpretative methods in a manner such that it makes possible claims to be filed before the finality of a denationalization decision. Thus, the challenged provision is not inconsistent with Art. 2 of the Constitution.

There are different types of denationalized property or different forms of denationalization. Therefore, by the nature of things, it is impossible for denationalization claimants to be in an equal position. The position of individual denationalization claimants differs in view of their claims on account of different circumstances of a particular case, from which what depends is particular the height of damage caused to these entitled persons, since they could not have managed or used their nationalized property until the finality of denationalization decisions. Thus, the challenged regulation is not in violation of the principle of equality before the law (Art. 14 of the Constitution).
