Date Citation Note
20.10.1959 D. 1959, 537 Case Société X. v. P .

Subsequent developments
The amount ultimately held payable under a provisional astreinte need not be in relation to the creditor’s loss, since such an astreinte is also designed to overcome the debtor’s reluctance to perform his obligations.
