BUENOS AIRES Aug 22 Argentina on Friday accused
the U.S. judge who called the country's debt restructuring plan
illegal of making "imperialist" comments against the South
Argentine Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich said U.S. District
Judge Thomas Griesa's choice of words were "unfortunate,
incorrect and even, I would say, imperialist expressions".
Griesa on Thursday said a proposed law announced by
Argentina's president this week would violate orders he imposed
favoring creditors who refused to accept restructured bonds
following the country's record 2002 default.
