[p 9]
The International Court of Justice,

Composed as above,

After deliberation,

Having regard to Article 66, paragraph 2, of the Statute of the Court,

Makes the following Order:

Whereas, on 20 June 1972, the Committee on Applications for Review of Judgements of the Administrative Tribunal of the United Nations adopted the following decision: [p 10]

"The Committee on Applications for Review of Administrative Tribunal Judgements has decided that there is a substantial basis within the meaning of Article 11 of the Statute of the Administrative Tribunal for the application for the review of Administrative Tribunal Judgement No. 158, delivered at Geneva on 28 April 1972.

Accordingly, the Committee requests an advisory opinion of the International Court of Justice on the following questions:

1. Has the Tribunal failed to exercise jurisdiction vested in it as contended in the applicant's application to the Committee on Applications for Review of Administrative Tribunal Judgements (A/AC.86/R.59)?

2. Has the Tribunal committed a fundamental error in procedure which has occasioned a failure of justice as contended in the applicant's application to the Committee on Applications for Review of Administrative Tribunal Judgements (A/AC.86/R.59)?"

Whereas certified true copies of the English and French texts of the aforesaid decision were transmitted to the Court by a letter of the Secretary-General of the United Nations dated 28 June
1972 and filed in the Registry on 3 July 1972;

Whereas the Secretary-General has stated in his letter:

"as required by paragraph 2 of Article 11 of the Statute of the United Nations Administrative Tribunal, I shall arrange to transmit to the Court any views which the applicant to the Committee on Applications for Review of Administrative Tribunal Judgements may wish to submit",

The Court

Fixes 20 September 1972 as the time-limit within which written statements may be submitted in accordance with Article 66, paragraph 2, of the Statute of the Court;

Reserves the subsequent procedure for further decision.

Done in English and in French, the English text being authoritative, at the Peace Palace, The Hague, this fourteenth day of July, one thousand nine hundred and seventy-two.

(Signed) Zafrulla Khan,
President.

(Signed) S. Aquarone,
