[p653]

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, 44 and 79 of the Rules of Court,

Having regard to the Application filed in the Registry of the Court on 28 December 1998, whereby the Republic of Guinea instituted proceedings against the Democratic Republic of the Congo in respect of a dis-pute originating in “serious violations of international law” which the latter had allegedly “committed upon the person of a Guinean national”,

Having regard to the Order dated 25 November 1999, whereby the Court fixed 11 September 2001 as the time-limit for the filing of the Counter-Memorial of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and the Order dated 8 September 2000, whereby the President of the Court extended this time-limit to 4 October 2002,

Having regard to the preliminary objections concerning the admissibility of the Application of the Republic of Guinea which were submitted by the Government of the Democratic Republic of the Congo within the time-limit as thus extended for the filing of the Counter-Memorial;

Whereas, by a Judgment dated 24 May 2007, the Court declared the Application of the Republic of Guinea to be admissible in so far as it concerned protection of Mr. Diallo’s rights as an individual and protection of his direct rights as associé in Africom-Zaire and Africontainers-Zaire;

Whereas, at a meeting between the President of the Court and the representatives of the Parties held on 19 June 2007, the Co-Agent of the Democratic Republic of the Congo indicated that his Government would be able to file its Counter-Memorial in the case at the end of March 2008; and whereas the Agent of the Republic of Guinea expressed his Government’s agreement to such a time-limit;

Taking account of the agreement of the Parties,

Fixes 27 March 2008 as the time-limit for the filing of the Counter-Memorial of the Democratic Republic of the Congo; 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 twenty-seventh day of June, two thousand and seven, 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 Guinea and the Government of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, respectively.
