As a general rule, the court shall rule on the petition for an injunctive relief after hearing the defendant. However, as mentioned in the previous question, an injunctive relief may be obtained exceptionally on an ex parte basis, without the respondent present.
The court may order an injunctive relief without the respondent present if the applicant requests this and evidences the existence of urgency or that the prior hearing may jeopardise the efficiency of the injunction.
The court order shall be notified to the parties without delay and, if it cannot be notified sooner, immediately after the enforcement of the measures.
