The homologation of foreign sentences is a procedure that aims at giving validity to a foreign judicial act. It is the recognition, by a judicial or administrative authority, of private acts performed abroad, in order to have legal validity in Cape Verde. Therefore, anyone who may be affected by a judicial decision rendered by a foreign authority must apply for homologation of the decision. CMA handles the homologation process so that the decision rendered by judges abroad can have efficacy in the national territory and thus be executed as if it were a Cape Verdean sentence.
