138. On the application of a person who claims to have a right in the thing seized, a judge shall order the thing seized or the proceeds of the sale thereof to be handed over to the person if he is satisfied that the person is entitled thereto, that the return thereof will not hinder the course of justice and that detention or forfeiture thereof is not required under article 135, 136 or 137.
Prior notice of the application must be served on the seizor, the prosecutor, the defendant and the person from whom the thing was seized if he does not make such an application.
