Abstract

This contribution elaborates on the rather seldom treated topic of “execution” of administrative acts which lies at the interface between the administrative law and the law on administrative procedure. Special importance hereby is attributed to remedies against decisions on the enforcement of administrative acts and other types of injunction, that are in connection with a threat of punishment in accordance with Article 292 of the Swiss Penal Code. With reference to a recent judgment of the Swiss Federal Administrative Court, the law on debt enforcement and bankruptcy is also explained pointing out the difference between the enforcement of administrative acts and the execution of contractual claims on the part of public authorities.
