Unprecedented Financial Burden for Argentine Government: Implications of Kirchner Era False Claims in UK Court Trial

During the Kirchner era, Argentina must compensate US$337 million for manipulating Indec data.

The government of Javier Milei is facing a significant financial burden of approximately US$ 337 million in order to appeal an adverse ruling related to the manipulation of Indec data during the Kirchner era from 2007 to 2015. This payment will need to be made in a court in Great Britain as part of a trial against the country for falsifying economic growth data during Kirchnerism. The total amount of the sentence is approximately US$1.5 billion, as reported by Bloomberg and expert Sebastián Maril.

In response to this ruling, the Argentine government has created the RofA Special Trust 2024 in New York, with nearly US$330 million provided as a guarantee for appealing the ruling on PBI Coupons. The Executive Branch recently approved Decree 277/2024, which authorizes the creation of this trust and issues a Standby Letter of Credit in favor of the Trustee of Negotiable Securities. However, it is important to note that this decree also grants an extension of jurisdiction to state and federal courts in New York and waives defense of sovereign immunity in contracts related to this decree.

The London Court of Appeal has set a deadline of April 5 for the State to pay bail into a trust account if they wish to continue with the trial related to PBI Coupons. It’s worth noting that while various assets are specified that are protected by sovereign immunity laws and cannot be used for payment, it’s important for Argentina not waive immunity with respect to execution sentences arising from extended jurisdiction clauses.

The case has sparked discussion and speculation online, with various sources providing insights and analysis on its implications. While some see it as an opportunity for Argentina to clear its name, others are concerned about what this may mean for its future relations with other countries. Ultimately, only time will tell how this situation unfolds and what its long-term effects may be for both Argentina and the wider international community.
