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, 45, paragraph 2, 48 and 49 of the Rules of Court,

Having regard to the Order dated 27 June 2007, whereby the Court fixed 27 March 2008 as the time-limit for the filing of the Counter-Memorial of the Democratic Republic of the Congo,

Having regard to the Counter-Memorial duly filed by the Democratic Republic of the Congo within that time-limit;

Whereas, at a meeting held by the President of the Court with the Agents of the Parties on 5 May 2008, the Agent of the Republic of Guinea indicated that a Reply by his Government was necessary in the case and requested a time-limit of nine months for that pleading to be prepared;

and whereas the Agent of the Democratic Republic of the Congo stated that his Government was not opposed to a second round of written pleadings, while finding that, in view of the time which had already passed since the Application was filed, the time-limit requested for the filing of the Reply appeared unduly long;

Taking account of the views of the Parties,

Authorizes the submission of a Reply by the Republic of Guinea and a Rejoinder by the Democratic Republic of the Congo;

Fixes the following time-limits for the filing of those pleadings:

19 November 2008 for the Reply of the Republic of Guinea;
5 June 2009 for the Rejoinder 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 fifth day of May, two thousand and eight, 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.

(Signed) Rosalyn HIGGINS,
President.

Registrar.
