‘Who will join debt restructuring now?’
Renewal Front’s lawmaker José Ignacio de Mendiguren said the US Supreme Court rejection of Argentina’s appeal in its legal dispute with vulture funds sends a “complicated message to the world” and warned about its negative impact for debt restructuring processes.

Mendiguren bashed the so called vulture funds, saying they “take advantage of International Law loopholes” around the globe with “top lawyers”
