1. By letter to the Tribunals dated 12 June 2012, the Claimants have made an urgent application for provisional measures which appears to have been made under Rule 39 of the ICSID Arbitration Rules (“Application”).
2. It has not been possible, due to the urgency of the matter, for the Tribunals as a whole to deliberate. Accordingly, having considered the Application, I issue these Directions as President of the Tribunals pursuant to paragraph 5.3 of the Summary Minutes of the Joint First Session (“Minutes”).1In accordance with that provision, I will confer with my colleagues as soon as possible regarding the final determination of the Application, including the need, if any, for reconsideration of these Directions.
