Citation: Certain Property (Liech. v. F.R.G.), 2002 I.C.J. 296 (Order of July 12)

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 28 June 2001, whereby the Court fixed 28 March 2002 and 27 December 2002 as the time-limits for the filing, respectively, of a Memorial by the Principality of Liechtenstein and of a Counter-Memorial by the Federal Republic of Germany,

Having regard to the Memorial of Liechtenstein, which was filed within the time-limit thus fixed;

Whereas on 27 June 2002 the Federal Republic of Germany filed certain preliminary objections to jurisdiction and admissibility;

Whereas accordingly, by virtue of Article 79, paragraph 5, 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 held by the President of the Court with the Agents of the Parties on 12 July 2002, Liechtenstein requested that 15 November 2002 be fixed as the time-limit for the preparation of that written statement; and whereas Germany raised no objection to the fixing of such a time-limit and stated that it would leave the decision thereon to the Court, [p 297]

Taking account of the views of the Parties,

Fixes 15 November 2002 as the time-limit within which the Principality of Liechtenstein may present a written statement of its observations and submissions on the preliminary objections made by the Federal Republic of Germany; 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 twelfth day of July, two thousand and two, in three copies, one of which will be placed in the archives of the Court and the others transmitted to the Government of the Principality of Liechtenstein and the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany, respectively.
