Libertad Frigate, a month impounded in Ghana

A month after the Libertad frigate was impounded in Ghana over a lawsuit filed by a US based vulture fund, its future remains uncertain as Argentina undergoes intense diplomatic negotiations searching for allies to ensure the naval vessel’s return to its country of origin.

Argentina has already taken the matter to the United Nations and is willing to turn to all international courts to recover the frigate and to prevent that a corvette anchored in South Africa due to technical problems is seized as well.

“These ships cannot be embargoed according to international law,” Foreign Minister Héctor Timerman said today from Pretoria, where he is taking part of a binational committee to strengthen bilateral ties between Argentina and South Africa.

President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner earlier said that as long as she is in office, “they might keep the Frigate but the freedom, dignity and sovereignty of this country will never be taken away.”
