In matters regarding the bankruptcy estate, the receiver (otherwise called: “the insolvency administrator”) acts on behalf of the bankrupt. The role of the receiver is limited by the provisions of the bankruptcy law to take up a bankrupt property, manage it, secure it and liquidate it. Please note that the receiver cannot be the person authorized to represent the bankrupt.

Only the probation officer established under art. 429. Paragraph 3 bankruptcy law is allowed to represent the bankrupt.
