1. Having invited the parties to submit their views on the conduct of Dr. Makarim’s cross-examination as well as time allocation and the sequence of the parties’ oral arguments, the Tribunal has determined that the Schedule for the Hearing on Jurisdiction shall be as follows:
1.1. Accordingly, each side has approximately 5 hours for use during the hearing (4h50 for the Claimant and 5h10 for the Respondent, the difference taking into consideration to some extent the longer cross-examination time). If a Party wishes to change the allocation of its time for a given step, it may do so provided that it stays within its total allocation of 4h50 and 5h10 respectively and provided that the overall structure of the hearing schedule (Mr. Makarim's examination on Monday morning; Respondent's oral arguments on Monday afternoon; Claimant's oral arguments on Tuesday morning; and second round on Tuesday early afternoon) remains unaltered.
2. Logistical issues
2.1. The Centre confirmed that the verbatim transcript of the hearing will be available in real-time and that electronic copies of the transcript would be provided to the parties and the Tribunal on a same-day basis. The Centre invited the parties to confirm whether the court reporter should also provide them with a hard copy of the transcript at the end of the first day of the hearing.
2.2. The Centre recalled that the set-up at Maxwell Chambers will take place on Sunday, 12 May 2013 from 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm local time. The Centre confirmed that both parties submitted the list of attendees for the set-up on 24 and 25 April 2013.
2.3. The parties did not raise any further logistical issues.
