  ORDER

[1] The International Court of Justice,

composed as above,
after deliberation,
having regard to Article 48 of the Statute of the Court and to Article 37 of the Rules of Court,

MAKES THE FOLLOWING ORDER:

[2] Having regard to the Order of 5 February 1963, fixing 30 September 1963 as the time-limit for the filing of the Counter-Memorial of the Government of South Africa;

[3] Whereas, in a letter dated 21 August 1963, received and filed in the Registry on 29 August 1963, the Agent for the Government of South Africa set out the reasons for which his Government considered that this time-limit was insufficient and requested its extension to 15 May 1964;

[4] Whereas, on 30 August 1963, a certified true copy of the aforementioned letter was transmitted to the Agent for the Governments of Ethiopia and Liberia who was asked to make known the views of those Governments on the request;

[5] Whereas, in a letter dated 6 September 1963, the Agent for the Governments of Ethiopia and Liberia set out the reasons for which those Governments opposed the granting of any extension of time,

[6] THE COURT,

having thus ascertained the views of the Parties,
extends to 10 January 1964 the time-limit for the filing of the Counter-Memorial of the Government of South Africa;

[7] Reserves the subsequent procedure for further decision.

[8] Done in English and in French, the English text being authoritative, at the Peace Palace, The Hague, this eighteenth day of September one thousand nine hundred and sixty-three, in four copies, one of which will be placed in the archives of the Court, and the others transmitted to the Government of Ethiopia, the Government of Liberia and the Government of South Africa, respectively.

(Signed) B. Winiarski,
President.
