Description

New York district judge Thomas Griesa, known for siding with vulture funds, declared on Monday that Argentina is in contempt of court due to what he deemed the nation's illegal attempts to pay back bond holders ahead of vulture funds. Argentine Foreign Minister Hector Timerman responded by saying that the ruling was inconceivable and goes against international law, which strictly prohibits measures by national judges against foreign states. teleSUR http://multimedia.telesurtv.net/web/telesur/#!en/video/us-judge-charges-argentina-with-contempt-over-vulture-funds-292975
