[p6]

The International Court of Justice,

composed as above,

after deliberation,

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 Order of April 16th, 1957, fixing the time-limit within which the Government of the Republic of Portugal may present a written statement of its Observations and Submissions in regard to the Objections raised by the Government of the Republic of India;[p 7]

Whereas by a letter dated May 6th, 1957, a certified true copy of which was transmitted the same day to the Agent for the Government of the Republic of India, the Agent for the Government of the Republic of Portugal, referring in particular to the unusual length of the document raising the Preliminary Objections, requested an extension of this time-limit ;

Whereas by a letter of May 16th, 1957, the Agent for the Government of the Republic of India stated that his Government, while not accepting the correctness of the reasons put forward for the request for extension, had no objection thereto;

The Court

Extends to August 15th, 1957, the time-limit for the filing of the Observations and Submissions of the Government of the Republic of Portugal in regard to the Objections raised by the Government of the Republic of India.

Done in English and in French, the English text being authoritative, at the Peace Palace, The Hague, this eighteenth day of May, one thousand nine hundred and fifty-seven, in three copies, one of which will be placed in the archives of the Court and the others transmitted to the Government of the Portuguese Republic and to the Government of the Republic of India, respectively.
