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 of 17 June 2004, whereby the Court fixed 10 December 2004 and 10 June 2005 respectively as the time-limits for the filing of the Reply of the Republic of the Congo and the Rejoinder of the French Republic;

Whereas, in a letter dated 2 December 2004 and received in the Registry on the same day by facsimile, the Agent of the Republic of the Congo referred to a decision of the First Prosecution Chamber of the Court of Appeal of Paris, handed down on 22 November 2004, of which he supplied a copy, and asked the Court, for the reasons explained in that letter, to postpone until 10 January 2005 the time-limit for the filing of the Reply of the Republic of the Congo; and whereas, on receipt of that letter, the Registrar transmitted a copy thereof to the Agent of France;

Whereas, by a letter dated 6 December 2004 and received in the Registry on 7 December 2004 by facsimile, the Agent of France indicated that his Government did not object to the extension of the time-limit sought by the Republic of the Congo;

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

Extends to 10 January 2005 the time-limit for the filing of the Reply of the Republic of the Congo;

Extends to 10 August 2005 the time-limit for the filing of the Rejoinder of the French Republic; 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 eighth day of December, two thousand and four, 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 the Congo and the Government of the Republic of France, respectively.
