The Kirchner era from 2007 to 2015 has left a significant mark on Argentina’s economy, and the recent ruling by the Court of Appeal in London has added another layer of complexity to the situation. Javier Millay’s government now faces a payout of around $337 million to appeal against the negative ruling related to the manipulation of Indec data during that period.

The payment will have to be made in a UK court as part of a process against the country for falsifying economic growth data during Kirchnerism. The total amount of the fine is about 1.5 billion dollars, as reported by Bloomberg and expert Sebastian Maril.

The plaintiffs in the case are represented by the law firm Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, and among the partners is Denis Hranicki, the lawyer who seized the Frigate Libertad in 2012. The Argentine government has established RofA Special Trust 2024 in New York to provide a guarantee of almost US$330 million as a condition for an appeal against the PBI coupons decision in London.

The Executive Branch recently approved a decree, 277/2024, published in the Official Gazette, authorizing the establishment of RofA Special Fund 2024 and issuing standby letters of credit in favor of transferable securities trustees. However, it also grants jurisdiction to state and federal courts in New York and waives sovereign immunity defense in contracts related to this decree. It clarifies that while Argentina does not waive its immunity with respect to penalty enforcement arising from extended jurisdiction clauses, various assets are listed that are protected by sovereign immunity laws and cannot be used for payment.

The case has sparked discussion and speculation online, with various sources providing insight and analysis on its implications for both Argentina’s economy and its legal system. Some commentators have expressed concerns about how such fines may affect future investment decisions, while others argue that this ruling sets an important precedent for holding governments accountable for economic mismanagement during specific periods.

Overall, it remains unclear what consequences this ruling may have on Argentina’s future economic prospects or legal standing globally. However, one thing is clear: Javier Millay’s government will need to carefully consider how they respond before paying out nearly $337 million in damages related to Kirchner-era economic mismanagement.
