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 of 29 November 2001, whereby the Court ruled on the admissibility of the counter-claims presented by the Republic of Uganda in its Counter-Memorial, directed the Democratic Republic of the Congo to submit a Reply and the Republic of Uganda to submit a Rejoinder relating to the claims of both Parties in the current proceedings, and fixed 29 May 2002 and 29 November 2002 as the respective time-limits for the filing of those pleadings,

Having regard to the Reply of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which was filed within the time-limit thus fixed; [p 605]

Whereas, by two letters dated 21 October 2002 and received in the Registry on the same day by facsimile, the Agent of the Republic of Uganda asked the Court to extend by seven days the time-limit for the filing of the Rejoinder, and indicated the reasons for that request; and whereas, on receipt of those letters, the Deputy-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 29 October 2002 and received in the Registry on 30 October 2002, the Agent of the Democratic Republic of the Congo indicated that his Government did not object to the extension of the time-limit requested by the Republic of Uganda;

Taking account of the reasons given by the Republic of Uganda and of the agreement of the Parties,

Extends to 6 December 2002 the time-limit for the filing of the Rejoinder of the Republic of Uganda; 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 seventh day of November, 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 Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Government of the Republic of Uganda, respectively.
