During the August 15 conference call held between the Chairman and the parties in connection with the interim measures, a number of practical aspects relating to the application were agreed, and in particular that the parties would carry out a joint visit of the sites.
The Tribunal is in receipt of Mexico’s letter of 13 November 2003, confirming that the joint visit of the sites took place on 5, 6 and 7 November 2003. The Tribunal therefore considers that Claimant’s application for interim measures has become moot, without prejudice to the right of either party to apply for interim measures in the appropriate circumstances.
By letter of 20 October 2003, Claimant was invited by the Tribunal to file any observations it may have on Mexico’s response by 23 October 2003. The Tribunal notes that Thunderbird has not reacted to Mexico’s letter within the time allotted by the Tribunal, from which the Tribunal infers that the matter does not require further action from the Tribunal.
