Questions referred

Is a provision of national law, namely Article 1 of the Ovršni zakon (Law on enforcement) (published in the Narodne novine Nos 112/12, 25/13, 93/14, 55/16 and 73/17), which gives notaries the power to enforce the recovery of debts based on an authentic document by issuing a writ of execution, as an enforcement order, without the express agreement of the debtor who is a legal person established in the Republic of Croatia, compatible with Article 6(1) of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms and Article 18 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, in the light of the judgments of the Court of Justice of the European Union in Cases C-484/15 and C-551/15?

Can the interpretation given in the judgments of the Court of Justice of 9 March 2017, Zulfikarpašić (C-484/15, EU:C:2017:199), and Pula Parking (C-551/15, EU:C:2017:193), be applied to Case Povrv-752/19, described above, and, specifically, is Regulation No 1215/2012 to be interpreted as meaning that, in Croatia, notaries, acting within the framework of the powers conferred on them by national law in enforcement proceedings based on an ‘authentic document’, in which the parties seeking enforcement are legal persons established in other EU Member States, do not fall within the concept of ‘court’ within the meaning of that regulation?
