On 10 October 2018, the Tribunal issued Procedural Order No. 4, concerning adjustments to the procedural calendar. In its order, the Tribunal granted a 60-day extension to the Respondent to file its Counter-Memorial on the Merits and Memorial on Jurisdiction and allowed a 60-day extension to the Claimant for the filing of its Reply on the Merits and Counter-Memorial on Jurisdiction, if so required.
By communications of 26 and 29 October 2018, and 27 and 29 November 2018, the Parties consulted with the Tribunal concerning potential alternative hearing dates, in case the Claimant were to apply for a 60-day extension under Procedural Order No. 4 and the end-January 2020 hearing needed to be moved. Having consulted with the Parties, the Tribunal concluded that it was necessary to keep the January 2020 hearing dates to avoid several additional months of delay in the proceeding.
By communications of 18 and 20 December 2018, the Parties informed the Tribunal of their agreement to propose amendments to the procedural calendar with respect to the timetable for the remaining procedural steps prior to the hearing.
The Tribunal approves the Parties’ proposed amendments to the procedural calendar, as revised on 20 December 2018. The Tribunal issues this Procedural Order No. 5, memorializing such amendments.
In view of the above, Annex A to Procedural Order No. 1 is hereby amended as follows:
