Abstract

The essay deals with the issue relating to the invalidity of the contract extorted by threat, criticizing ordinance no. 17568/2002 in which the Supreme Court, applying art. 1418 of the Civil Code, affirmed the nullity of the contract due to contrary to the mandatory criminal law rather than its annullment due to duress. The essay reaches a different conclusion, arguing that nullity occurs only in cases where the violation concerns the agreed regulation and not the pre-contractual behavior of one of the parties.
