CHAPTER VIII.—Certificates giving the Right
to Plead in Forma Pauperis.

The drawing up or attestation of certificates giving the right of
pleading in forma pauperis may be carried out by Elective Consuls as well
as State Consuls. Arts. 14 and 15 of the International Convention,
concluded at The Hague on the 14th November 1898, and confirmed,
as to Russia, by Imperial Decree of the 24th February 1899, provides
that the subjects of any one of the contracting States shall possess
the right of pleading in forma pauperis in any of the other contracting
States, on the same lines as the subjects of such States, and in
accordance with the laws of that State in which the petition for the right
of so pleading is made. The certification or declaration of the fact
of the petitioner’s poverty must be made by the authorities either
of his place of permanent residence or of the place where he is residing
at the time. If the petitioner does not reside in the country where
the petition for the right of pleading poverty is made, the certification
or declaration of the fact of poverty must be legalised by the local
Consular or Diplomatic agent of the country where the document is
to be produced, free of charge.

From the above it will be seen that in order to have the right
of pleading in forma pauperis in Russia, a foreigner residing abroad
must produce a certification or declaration of poverty issued by the
authorities of the place of his residence and legalised by the local
Russian Consular officer.

CHAPTER IX.—Stamp Duties on Petitions and
Other Documents.

The Russian Law relating to stamp duties provides various rates
according to the documents to be charged. The following documents
are subject to stamp duty :—

1. Documents and papers filed in Government institutions or

institutions and officials.

2. Documents and acts of different kinds drawn up and delivered

3. Interest-bearing papers issued by town and other public
institutions, or by companies and other commercial corporations.

4. Acts and documents drawn up and delivered abroad, as also
interest-bearing papers issued abroad, when the aforesaid acts or
documents are produced for execution in Russia, or the
interest-bearing papers are circulated with the Empire.
