The International Court of Justice,

Composed as above,

After deliberation,

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 27 June 2000, whereby the Court extended until 14 March 2001 and 16 September 2002 respectively the time-limits for the filing of the Memorial of the Republic of Croatia and the Counter-Memorial of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia,

Having regard to the Memorial of the Republic of Croatia, filed within the time-limit as thus extended;

Whereas on 11 September 2002, within the time-limit fixed for the filing of the Counter-Memorial, the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia filed certain preliminary objections to jurisdiction and to admissibility; [p 611]

Whereas accordingly, by virtue of Article 79, paragraph 3, of the Rules of Court adopted on 14 April 1978, 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 with the Agents of the Parties on 6 November 2002, the Republic of Croatia, referring to the current proceedings in the case concerning Application for Revision of the Judgment of 11 July 1996 in the Case concerning Application of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (Bosnia and Herzegovina v. Yugoslavia), Preliminary Objections (Yugoslavia v. Bosnia and Herzegovina), asked to be allowed until the end of April 2003 to file its written statement; and whereas the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia made no objection to that request being accepted by the Court;

Taking account of the particular circumstances of the case and of the agreement of the Parties,

Fixes 29 April 2003 as the time-limit within which the Republic of Croatia may present a written statement of its observations and submissions on the preliminary objections raised by 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 fourteenth 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 Republic of Croatia and the Government of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, respectively.
