At oral argument on Wednesday, February 27, 2013, counsel for the Republic of Argentina appeared to propose that, in lieu of the ratable payment formula ordered by the district court in its injunction and accompanying opinion of November 21, 2012, Argentina was prepared to abide by a different formula for repaying debt owed on both the original and exchange bonds at issue in this litigation. Because neither the parameters of Argentina’s proposal nor its commitment to abide by it is clear from the record, it is hereby ordered that, on or before March 29, 2013, Argentina submit in writing to the court the precise terms of any alternative payment formula and schedule to which it is prepared to commit.
The court directs that, among the terms specified, Argentina indicate: (1) how and when it proposes to make current those debt obligations on the original bonds that have gone unpaid over the last 11 years; (2) the rate at which it proposes to repay debt obligations on the original bonds going forward; and (3) what assurances, if any, it can provide that the official government action necessary to implement its proposal will be taken, and the timetable for such action. Should a response be sought from any other party to Argentina’s submission, a further order will issue from the court.
"Si prefieres el bienestar a la libertad, la tranquilidad de la servidumbre al animado desafío de ser libre,
vete en paz a tu casa. No te pedimos tu consejo ni tu apoyo. Inclínate y lame la mano que te alimenta.
Que tus cadenas sean livianas, y que la posteridad olvide que fuiste nuestro compatriota."Samuel Adamssite layout & redesign by Klaus
