[p.80]
The President of the International Court of Justice,

Having regard to Article 48 of the Statute of the Court and to 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 filing of the Memorial of Bosnia and Herzegovina and 15 April 1994 as that for the filing of the Counter-Memorial of Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro),

Having regard to the Order made by the Vice-President of the Court on 7 October 1993, whereby he extended to 15 April 1994 the time-limit for the filing of the Memorial of Bosnia and Herzegovina and extended to 15 April 1995 the time-limit for the filing of the Counter-Memorial of Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro);

Whereas the Memorial of Bosnia and Herzegovina was duly filed within the extended time-limit;

Whereas the Agent of the Respondent, by a letter with Annex dated 9 February 1995, received by facsimile in the Registry on the same day, requested the Court, for reasons stated in that letter, to extend until 15 November 1995 the time-limit for the filing of the Counter-Memorial [p 81] of his Government; and whereas the Registrar immediately transmitted a copy of that letter and of its Annex to the Agent of the Applicant;

Whereas the Agent of the Applicant, by a letter dated 8 March 1995, received by facsimile in the Registry on the same day, let it be known that his Government considered, for reasons stated in that letter, that the Court ought not to grant the request for an extension of the time-limit as submitted by Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro),

Extends to 30 June 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 French and in English, the French text being authoritative, at the Peace Palace, The Hague, this twenty-first day of March, one thousand nine hundred and ninety-five, 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 Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Government of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro), respectively.
