[p.743]
The International Court of Justice,

Composed as above,

After deliberation,

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

Having regard to the Order dated 17 December 1997, whereby the Court directed Bosnia and Herzegovina to submit a Reply and Yugoslavia to submit a Rejoinder relating to the claims of both Parties and, account having been taken of the views expressed by the Parties, fixed, respectively, 23 January 1998 and 23 July 1998 as time-limits for the filing of the Reply and the Rejoinder,

Having regard to the Order dated 22 January 1998, whereby the President of the Court extended to 23 April 1998 the time-limit for the filing of the [p 744] Reply of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and to 22 January 1999 the time-limit for the filing of the Rejoinder of Yugoslavia,

Having regard to the Reply filed by Bosnia and Herzegovina within the time-limit so extended;

Whereas, by letter dated 27 November 1998 and received in the Registry on the same day by facsimile, the Agent of Yugoslavia asked the Court, for reasons stated in that letter, to extend to 22 April 1999 the time-limit for the filing of the Rejoinder of his Government; and whereas the Deputy-Registrar, referring to Article 44, paragraph 3, of the Rules of Court, immediately transmitted a copy of that letter to the Agent of Bosnia and Herzegovina;

Whereas, by a letter dated 9 December 1998 and received in the Registry on the same day by facsimile, the Deputy-Agent of Bosnia and Herzegovina indicated that Bosnia and Herzegovina considered, for reasons stated in that letter, that the Court ought not to grant any extension of the time-limit,

Extends to 22 February 1999 the time-limit for the filing of the Rejoinder of Yugoslavia; 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 eleventh day of December, one thousand nine hundred and ninety-eight, in three copies, one of which will be placed in the archives of the Court and the others transmitted to the Government of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Government of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, respectively.

(Signed) Stephen M. Schwebel,
President.

(Signed) Jean-Jacques Arnaldez,
