Citation: Border and Transborder Armed Actions (Nicar. v. Hond.), 1988 I.C.J. 6 (Order of Apr. 21)

The President of the International Court of Justice,

Having regard to Article 48 of the Statute of the Court and to Articles 31,44 and 45 of the Rules of Court,

Having regard to the Order of 22 October 1986, by which the Court decided, inter alia, that the written proceedings should first be addressed to the questions of the jurisdiction of the Court to entertain the dispute and of the admissibility of the Application and fixed time-limits for the filing of a Memorial by the Republic of Honduras and a Counter-Memorial by the Republic of Nicaragua on the questions of jurisdiction and admissibility,

Having regard to the Judgment of 20 December 1988, by which the Court found that it has jurisdiction to entertain the Application filed by the Republic of Nicaragua on 28 July 1986 and that that Application was admissible;

Whereas the suspension of the proceedings on the merits pending settlement of the questions of jurisdiction and admissibility has thus come to an end with the delivery of the Judgment of 20 December 1988, and the Court is therefore required to fix time-limits for written pleadings on the merits,

Having ascertained the views of the Parties, [p 7]

Fixes time-limits as follows for written proceedings on the merits:

19 September 1989 for the Memorial of the Republic of Nicaragua;

19 February 1990 for the Counter-Memorial of the Republic of Honduras;

And 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 twenty-first day of April, one thousand nine hundred and eighty-nine, in three copies, one of which will be placed in the archives of the Court and the others transmitted to the Government of the Republic of Nicaragua and the Government of the Republic of Honduras, respectively.
