Nobel laureate Pérez Esquivel urges Griesa to 'reflect on the debt'

Argentine Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Adolfo Pérez Esquivel said he has sent a letter to US Judge Thomas Griesa who ruled against Argentina in its case against “holdout” creditors, urging him to “reflect on the debt”.

“I sent the letter to him as a person, not as a judge, to make him reflect on the debt,” Pérez Esquivel said. “I do not know if there are carnivore and vegeterian vultures, the whole debt is immoral and unfair,” he stated in an interview with FM Nacional Rock 93.7 Radio.

Laureated in 1980 for its commitment to Democracy and Human Rights against military dictatorships in Latin America, Pérez Esquivel pointed out that “Argentina relinquished its juridical sovereignty to US Courts” and described it as “political masochism”.

“An US Court will never rule against its own interests, it is stupid to relinquish sovereignty to countries like the US,” he said.
