Argentina claims Griesa contempt order 'violates international law'.

The Foreign Ministry has asserted that New York district judge Thomas Griesa's contempt ruling against Argentina is in clear breach of international law, adding that the decision had no practical ramifications against the nation and only served to aid the vulture fund campaign.
The government department, headed by Foreign minister Héctor Timerman, stated this evening that Griesa's ruling "is in violation of international law, the United Nations Charter and the Organisation of American States charter," in a press statement.

Argentina’s government calls Congress to condemn Griesa's 'imperialist' statements

Unfortunate, incorrect and imperialist was how Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich described statements by US District Court Thomas Griesa who had questioned Argentina’s debt swap project that involves paying bondholders through the country’s Central Bank.

In his daily address to the press, Capitanich said Griesa’s position “interferes” in an “improper” way in Argentina’s sovereign decisions.

US judge Griesa declares jurisdiction change illegal

US District Judge Thomas Griesa today declared that an Argentine plan to change the jurisdiction of restructured foreign debt was illegal, while resisting holdout investors' demands that Argentina be held in contempt of court for attempting to change the site of payment to Buenos Aires.

Griesa stopped short of issuing a contempt order against the nation, which vulture funds had requested at the start of today's audience along with financial penalties. But he made it clear that any change of payment location would be in clear violation of his ruling, which states that holdouts must be paid before restructured bondholders.

Argentina: Kicillof warns "no change of payment jurisdiction"

Economy Minister Axel Kicillof was briefing reporters on the bill submitted by President Kirchner to Congress on Tuesday that seeks to change Argentina’s payment "location."
“Argentina has proved a massive, almost unanimous and completely successful debt restructuring,” Kicillof assured as he accused US Court District Judge Thomas Griesa of “clearly favouring” so called vulture funds suing the South American country over its defaulted bonds more than a decade ago.
Saying the ruling by Judge Griesa is “impossible” to comply with as it involves the payment of 1.6 billion dollars to bondholders (including interests) that refused to enter the country’s 2005 and 2010 restructurings, the minister renewed the government’s position that vulture funds never actually intended to accept Argentina's debt swaps.

Speaking via national broadcast today, the head of state unveiled the Sovereign Payment Law, which if passed will declare the 2005 and 2010 debt swaps as of public interest, thus allowing 100 percent of bondholders to receive payment.

Cristina: "Argentina no va a defaultear su deuda y tiene voluntad de negociación, lo que no tiene es voluntad de ser sometida a extorsión"

"Argentina no va a defaultear su deuda reestructurada" y el Gobierno adoptará "todos los instrumentos y todas las herramientas necesarias" para hacer frente al pago de los compromisos asumidos con los bonistas que ingresaron a los canjes de deuda de 2005 y 2010 y que explican el 92 por ciento de la deuda que cayó en default en 2001, afirmó.

En ese sentido, dijo que Argentina "demostró una evidente voluntad de negociar, pero hay que distinguir entre una negociación de lo que es una extorsión".
