Apr 20 15
A federal judge in Argentina has thrown out an injunction plea by Citigroup Inc.'s local Citibank NA unit against the central bank's decision to suspend its CEO, Gabriel Ribisich, from his duties. In her decision, Judge Claudia Rodríguez Vidal cited the "general nature and imprecision" of Citibank's request, arguing that the bank failed to demonstrate that its normal functioning would be threatened by the suspension. On April 1, the central bank said it would no longer allow Ribisich to represent the bank, accusing him of breaking Argentine law by taking part in a deal between Citibank's parent, Citigroup, and U.S. vulture funds suing Argentina over its defaulted bonds. In addition to Citibank's appeal, Ribisich's lawyers have filed their own suit, alleging that the decision is an "illegitimate and arbitrary violation" of his right to work at Citibank.
