[p.3]
The President of the International Court of Justice,

Having regard to Article 48 of the Statute of the Court and to Articles 31 and 79 of the Rules of Court,

Having regard to the Order of 16 June 1994 whereby the Court fixed 16 March 1995 and 18 December 1995 as the time-limits for the filing, respectively, of a Memorial of the Republic of Cameroon and of a Counter-Memorial of the Federal Republic of Nigeria;

Whereas on 13 December 1995 Nigeria filed certain preliminary objections to the jurisdiction of the Court and to the admissibility of the claims of Cameroon;

Whereas accordingly, by virtue of Article 79, paragraph 3, of the Rules of Court, the proceedings on the merits are suspended and a time-limit has to be fixed for the presentation by the other Party of a written statement of its observations and submissions on the preliminary objections;

Whereas at a meeting between the President of the Court and the Agents of the Parties, held on 10 January 1996, Cameroon requested that a time-limit of some five months from the filing of the preliminary objections be fixed for the presentation of that written statement, and whereas Nigeria agreed;

Having taken into account the views of the Parties, [p 4]

Fixes 15 May 1996 as the time-limit within which the Republic of Cameroon may present a written statement of its observations and submissions on the preliminary objections raised by the Federal Republic of Nigeria; 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 tenth day of January, one thousand nine hundred and ninety-six, 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 Cameroon and the Government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, respectively.
