Whereas Article III, paragraph 2, of the aforesaid Special Agreement records inter alia the agreement of the Parties that, without prejudice to any question as to the burden of proof, the written proceedings should first comprise a Memorial filed by each Party not later than six months after the adoption by the Court of the Order constituting the Chamber; and whereas, having been consulted on 14 March 1985, the Parties have confirmed that agreement;

Having consulted the Chamber,

Fixes 3 October 1985 as the time-limit for the filing of a Memorial by each Party.[p 11]

Done in English and in French, the English text being authoritative, at the Peace Palace, The Hague, this twelfth day of April, one thousand nine hundred and eighty-five, in three copies, of which one will be placed in the archives of the Court, and the others transmitted to the Government of Burkina Faso and to the Government of Mali, respectively.
