Filing an appeal against judgment?

The Civil Court in Qatar issued a judgment against our company and we did not attend the case. When we receive the judgment, the court official advised us to file an appeal. We filed an appeal and the hearing is posted after two months. But later, we received an execution notice. As we filed an appeal, the issue is still in dispute, then how can they apply for execution? How to deal with the execution case?

As per Article 181 of the Civil and Commercial procedure law, filing an appeal against the judgment shall not stay the execution proceedings. The court hears the appeal and may order for stay of execution, whenever it is requested to do so. If the execution would cause unavoidable harm, the court may, when ordering a stay of execution, order payment of security or whatever it deems appropriate to guarantee the right of the respondent.
