[P.13]

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,

Having regard to the Order of 15 September 1967 extending to 31 May 1968 the time-limit for the filing of the Rejoinder of the Government of Spain,[p14]

Makes the following Order:

Whereas, by a letter dated 10 May 1968, the Agent for the Government of Spain, for the reasons therein set out, requested the Court to extend by one month the time-limit for the filing of the Rejoinder;

Whereas, on 10 May 1968, a certified true copy of the afore-mentioned letter was transmitted to the Agent for the Government of Belgium who was asked to make known the views of that Government on the request;

Whereas, by a letter dated 17 May 1968, the Agent for the Government of Belgium stated that that Government had no objection to the request for extension;

Although noting with regret that the time-limits originally fixed by the Court for the filing of the pleadings have not been observed, whereby the written proceedings have been considerably prolonged,

The Court
Nevertheless extends to 1 July 1968 the time-limit for the filing of the Rejoinder of the Government of Spain.

Done in French and in English, the French text being authoritative, at the Peace Palace, The Hague, this twenty-fourth day of May, one thousand nine hundred and sixty-eight, in three copies, one of which will be placed in the archives of the Court and the others transmitted to the Government of Belgium and to the Government of Spain, respectively.

(Signed) J. L. Bustamante R.,
President.
