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 dated 14 September 1999, whereby the Court fixed 14 March 2000 and 14 September 2000 respectively as the time-limits for the filing of the Memorial of the Republic of Croatia and the Counter-Memorial of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia;

Whereas, by a letter received in the Registry on 25 February 2000 under cover of a Note Verbale dated 24 February 2000 from the Embassy of Croatia in the Netherlands, the Croatian Minister of Justice, Administration and Local Self-Government requested the Court to extend by six months the time-limit for the filing of the Memorial, and indicated the reasons for that request; and whereas, on receipt of that letter, the Registrar, referring to Article 44, paragraph 3, of the Rules of Court, transmitted a copy thereof to the Agent of Yugoslavia;

Whereas, by letter dated 6 March 2000 and received in the Registry on the same day by facsimile, the Agent of Yugoslavia indicated that his Government was not opposed to the extension of the time-limit requested by Croatia, provided that the time-limit fixed for the filing of the Counter-Memorial be extended likewise, [p 4]

Extends to 14 September 2000 the time-limit for the filing of the Memorial of the Republic of Croatia;

Extends to 14 September 2001 the time-limit for the filing of the Counter-Memorial of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia; 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 March two thousand, 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 Croatia and the Government of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, respectively.

(Signed) Gilbert Guillaume,
President.
