Suspension of proceedings is contrary to the principle of resolving disputes in the shortest time. Based on the occurrence of some causes, the suspension may be suspended so that the suspension ultimately undermines the rights of the parties or one of the parties to the dispute. The death and stoning of each of the parties to the dispute is one of the instances that impedes the proceedings and suspends the proceedings, or that the suspension may be due to a third party's protest or a court order to detain the trial. Examples of the suspension of proceedings in the Civil Procedure Act and the law of execution of sentences seem to be true. However, the legislator has neglected to use the term delay, rather than a suspense, a clear example of which can be found in articles 423 and 434. In both cases, the order is suspended, but the legislator has used the word delay. In this article, the concept of suspending the proceedings and some of its examples are selectively evaluated and discussed, in order to be able to accurately comment on this impediment in the course of the proceedings.
