The jurisdiction for such a procedure shall be held by the court in whose circuit the drawer (the issuer of the cheque) resides.

The cheque execution procedures may result in serious orders against the drawer/the cheque issuance, including but not limited to, imposing a travel ban, attachment on the properties or bank accounts, and vehicles.
