  2. if the application concerns administrative documents that are unfinished or incomplete.

Article 12. The exceptions specified in articles 13 to 15 apply without prejudice to any other exceptions specified by the law, the decree or the order on grounds related to the performance of the duties of the federal government, the community or the region.
