The Vice-President of the International Court of Justice,

Having regard to Article 48 of the Statute of the Court and to Articles 13 and 44 of the Rules of Court,

Having regard to the Application filed by the Republic of Nicaragua in the Registry of the Court on 28 July 1986, instituting proceedings against the Republic of Costa Rica,

Whereas by a telex message received in the Registry on 17 July 1987 the Agent of Nicaragua requested that the time-limit for the filing of the Memorial be extended, for the reasons therein stated;

Whereas the Agent of Costa Rica, having immediately been notified of the request of Nicaragua, addressed a letter to the Registrar dated 21 July 1987 in which he expressed certain reservations as to the attitude of the Government of Nicaragua, but indicated nevertheless that the Govern-ment of Costa Rica did not oppose the extension of the time-limit requested;

Extends to 10 August 1987 the time-limit for the filing of the Memorial of the Republic of Nicaragua; [p 180]

Extends to 2 June 1988 the time-limit for the filing of the Counter-Memorial of the Republic of Costa Rica;

And reserves the subsequent procedure for further decision.

Done in French and in English, the French text being authoritative, at the Peace Palace, The Hague, this twenty-first day of July, one thousand nine hundred and eighty-seven, in three copies, of which one will be placed in the archives of the Court, and the others transmitted to the Government of the Republic of Nicaragua, and to the Government of the Republic of Costa Rica, respectively.

(Signed) Keba Mbaye,
