The following article is from The Great Soviet Encyclopedia (1979). It might be outdated or ideologically biased.



in the USSR, an official written order to appear in court. A telegram or telephone message is equivalent to a legal summons. The summons states who is being called and in what capacity, where and before whom the person must appear, and the time of the appearance. It also indicates the consequences of failure to appear, for example, a witness may be forced to appear or a defendant’s measure of restraint may be made more severe.

The summons is also used to order citizens to appear before an investigator or person conducting an inquiry.
