Dies interpellat pro homine

Dies interpellat pro homine - this Latin phrase literally means “the day makes demand for the man”. In other words it refers to the legal rule stating that when the fulfilment of an obligation is due on a certain day, once this day comes this is enough for the creditor to demand performance. I.e. this day is “dies certus” – the deadline for fulfillment of the obligations by the debtor towards the creditor.
