Argentina accuses U.S. judge of abusing power in debt case
BUENOS AIRES, June 27
BUENOS AIRES, June 27 (Reuters) - In what it called an abuse of judicial power, Argentina on Friday said U.S. District Judge Thomas Griesa was trying to "provoke a default" by keeping the South American country from paying its debt.
By blocking a payment that Argentina has attempted to make to holders of its restructured bonds, the judge "has abused his power," a statement from the government said.
