Argentina's Central Bank Orders for Executive Change of HSBC Argentina to Prevent Money Laundering and Tax Evasion

Argentina's central bank has ordered HSBC's local unit to name a new president and vice president for failing to prevent money laundering and tax evasion. Argentine Cabinet chief Anibal Fernandez defended the decision and said that if HSBC aided in money laundering, the central bank is within its rights to demand the naming of new executives. HSBC Argentina says the bank is abiding by local law and will carry on operating as usual.

US Appeals Court Rules for Banco Central de la República Argentina SA in Bond Case

Argentina's central bank on August31, 2015 won the reversal of a U.S. court ruling that had allowed bondholders to try to hold it responsible for the country's obligations on debt that has been in default since 2002. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York overturned a 2013 ruling denying a bid by Banco Central de la República Argentina SA b(BCRA) to dismiss claims by creditors holding $2.4 billion in judgments against the South American country. U.S. District Judge Thomas Griesa had previously held that the central bank had waived its sovereign immunity, and that as a result the creditors could move forward with a lawsuit seeking to have it declared Argentina's 'alter ego.' The ruling had been sought by bondholders including NML Capital Ltd, which is a unit of Paul Singer's Elliott Management Corp, and EM Ltd, controlled by investor Kenneth Dart, who sought to go after funds BCRA held in foreign jurisdictions. But a three-judge panel of the 2nd Circuit reversed, saying BCRA could invoke its own sovereign immunity to avoid liability and directed Griesa to dismiss the case. Circuit Judge Jose Cabranes wrote that the court's ruling is not intended to allow Argentina to "continue shirking the debts it has the ability to pay, although it suspect that this will be a predictable and unfortunate outcome of its decision.
