Having regard to the Order made by the Court on 27 May 1987 by which it fixed 1 June 1988 as the time-limit for the Memorials, and reserved the subsequent procedure for further decision;

Whereas the Parties are in agreement that Counter-Memorials and Replies will be necessary for the due hearing and determination of the case;

The Chamber

Fixes 1 February 1989 as the time-limit for the filing by each of the Parties of a Counter-Memorial and 1 August 1989 as the time-limit for the filing by each of the Parties of a Reply;
