[p.146]
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 25 November 1999, whereby the Court fixed 11 September 2000 and 11 September 2001 respectively as the time-limits for the filing of the Memorial of the Republic of Guinea and the Counter-Memorial of the Democratic Republic of the Congo;

Whereas, by a letter dated 4 September 2000, received in the Registry on the same day by facsimile under cover of a Note Verbale from the Embassy of the Republic of Guinea in Brussels, the Minister for Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Guinea requested the Court to extend by nine months the time-limit for the filing of its 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 the Democratic Republic of the Congo;

Whereas, by a letter dated 7 September 2000, received in the Registry on the same day by facsimile, the Agent of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, inter alia, indicated that "[t]he new time-limit of nine months requested by Guinea [could] not be favourably received by the Congolese Government" and "were additional time to be allowed..., [this] should [p 147] not exceed three months, and should be considered an absolute time-limit, it being understood that the Democratic Republic of the Congo would receive a similar extension to the time-limit for the filing of its Counter-Memorial"

Extends to 23 March 2001 the time-limit for the filing of the Memorial of the Republic of Guinea;

Extends to 4 October 2002 the time-limit for the filing of the Counter-Memorial of the Democratic Republic of the Congo; 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 eighth day of September 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 Guinea and the Government of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, respectively.

(Signed) Gilbert Guillaume,
President.
