[p.3]
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 11 July 2005, whereby the President of the Court extended to 11 January 2006 and 10 August 2007 respectively 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 9 January 2006 and received in the Registry on the same day by facsimile, the Agent of the Republic of the Congo referred to the current state of judicial proceedings in France and the Congo, and asked the Court, for the reasons explained in his letter,
to extend by six months the time-limit for the filing of the Reply of [p 4] the Republic of the Congo; and whereas, on receipt of that letter, the Registrar transmitted a copy thereof to the Agent of the French Republic;

Whereas, by a letter dated 9 January 2006 and received in the Registry on the same day by facsimile, the Agent of the French Republic stated that her Government did not object to the further extension of time sought by the Republic of the Congo, it being understood that “this acceptance [was] linked only to the judicial proceedings in France” and that the time-limit fixed for the filing of the Rejoinder be extended likewise;

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

Extends to 11 July 2006 the time-limit for the filing of the Reply of the Republic of the Congo;

Extends to 11 August 2008 the time-limit for the filing of the Rejoinder of the French Republic; 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 eleventh day of January, two thousand and six, 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 French Republic, respectively.

(Signed) Shi Jiuyong,

President.

Registrar.
