Its now past 4am in The Hague, and Richard Guthrie has managed to get out another update.

“At 2am it was announced that the side negotiations had produced a text with one outstanding paragraph unresolved.

It was not until roughly 4am that a printed version of this text was available to delegates. The Conference has just gone behind closed doors again to consider the text in a formal session of the Committee of the Whole.

It is not clear how long this phase is going to take.”
