[p.470]
The Vice-President of the International Court of Justice,

Having regard to Article 48 of the Statute of the Court and to Article 13, paragraph 3, and Article 44, paragraphs 3 and 4, of the Rules of Court,

Having regard to the Order made by the President of the Court on 16 April 1993, whereby he fixed 15 October 1993 as the time-limit for the Memorial of Bosnia and Herzegovina and 15 April 1994 as that for the Counter-Memorial of Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro);

Whereas the Agent of the Applicant, by a letter dated 4 October 1993, received in facsimile in the Registry of the Court on 5 October 1993, requested the Court, for reasons stated in the letter, to extend by six months the time-limit fixed for the filing of the Memorial, and, should that request be granted, consented to the granting of an additional six months for the production of the Counter-Memorial if such were the Respondent's desire; and whereas the Deputy-Registrar immediately transmitted a copy of that letter to the Agent of the Respondent:

Whereas the Agent of the Respondent has expressed the opinion of his Government that, having in mind the principle of the equality of the Parties in respect of the time allowed for the production of pleadings,[p 471]the time-limit for the Counter-Memorial should be extended by twelve months,

Extends to 15 April 1994 the time-limit for the filing of the Memorial of the Government of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina;

Extends to 15 April 1995 the time-limit for the filing of the Counter-Memorial of the Government of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro); 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 seventh day of October, one thousand nine hundred and ninety-three, in three copies, one of which will be placed in the archives of the Court and the others transmitted to the Gov-ernment of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Government of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro), respectively.
