    A person who cannot pay his debts can have insolvency (bankruptcy) proceedings initiated against him. A court can "discharge" the debtor and release him of his debts through some financial arrangement, like attachment of his movable and non-movable assets. As long as an insolvent is not thus discharged by the court, he remains an "undischarged insolvent", which puts several limitations on him with respect to his financial dealings, candidature for elections etc.

    I read somewhere that there is a legal difference between being bankrupt and being insolvent .
    Is it true ?
