[p90]

The International Court of Justice,

having regard to Article 48 of the Statute of the Court,

having regard to Article 37 of the Rules of Court,

Makes the following Order:

Having regard to the Judgment of July 1st, 1952, in which the Court, adjudicating on the Preliminary Objection of the Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in the Ambatielos case, found that it had jurisdiction to decide whether the United Kingdom was under an obligation to submit to arbitration, in accordance with the Declaration of 1926, the difference as to the validity of the Ambatielos claim, in so far as that claim was based on the Treaty of 1886, and reserved its right to fix by an Order the time-limits for the filing of a Reply and a Rejoinder,

And whereas the Agent of the United Kingdom Government, in the course of an interview on July 1st, 1952, with the Vice-President of the Court, acting as President in the case, and in the presence of the Agent of the Royal Hellenic Government, expressed a wish that time-limits of three months should be fixed for the Reply and for the Rejoinder, [p91]

And whereas the Agent of the Hellenic Government stated, in a letter dated July 8th, 1952, that his Government was in agreement with that proposal,

And whereas there is no reason why the proposals thus made should not be complied with,

The Court

Fixes October 3rd, 1952, as the date of expiry of the time-limit for the filing of the Reply of the Royal Hellenic Government, and January 6th, 1953, as the date of expiry of the time-limit for the filing of the Rejoinder of the Government of the United Kingdom.

Done in English and in French, the English text being authoritative, at the Peace Palace, The Hague, this eighteenth day of July, one thousand nine hundred and fifty-two, in three copies, one of which will be placed in the archives of the Court, and the others transmitted to the Royal Hellenic Government and to the Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, respectively.

(Signed) J. G. Guerrero,
Vice-President.

(Signed) E. Hambro,
