“1. The Tribunal considers that, in the absence of ‘unforeseen and very material evidence’, being the phrase used by Ms Gehring Flores in submissions on 6 June 2017, any further application for bifurcation by Panama would be contrary to the spirit of the undertaking given by her at that time. Accordingly the Tribunal makes no order at this stage in relation to the possibility of bifurcation.
2. The Tribunal approves and adopts the Timetable proposed by Panama, and largely agreed by Bridgestone, in relation to the Non-Bifurcated Scenario, save that the Rejoinder is to be delivered by 22 April 2019.
3. The Tribunal provisionally directs that the hearing shall take place over a 5 day period in July 2019 and invites the parties to indicate their availability during that period by 19 January 2018.
4.The decision whether or not to order pre-hearing skeletons will be taken at the pre-hearing organisational meeting.
5.The Tribunal will incorporate these directions in a formal Procedural Order once the hearing date is determined.”
