STANFORD INT'L BANK: Owner’s Surrender Attempt Fails
----------------------------------------------------
Stanford International Bank Limited (SIBL) owner Robert Allen
Stanford tried unsuccessfully to surrender to U.S. marshals in the
federal courthouse in Houston, Laurel Brubaker Calkins of
Bloomberg News reports.  “We said he’s here to surrender, if
you’ve got a warrant,” the report quoted Dick DeGuerin, Mr.
Stanford’s lawyer, as saying.  “They said they don’t have a
warrant and couldn’t take him.”

“I wanted to establish beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is not a
flight risk,” Mr. DeGuerin told Bloomberg News in a phone
interview.  “He wants to face this.  He’s not going to hide, and
there’s no need to come after him.  They’re already following him
wherever he goes, so I’m calling them out on it.”

The report relates Mr. DeGuerin said he’s never escorted a client
to the U.S. Marshal’s office to surrender before an indictment was
handed down.  The report relates Mr. DeGuerin said he hoped the
gesture would persuade the government to allow Mr. Stanford to
self-surrender if he is criminally charged, rather than be
arrested and led into the courthouse in handcuffs.

The SEC, on Feb. 17, charged Mr. Stanford and three of his
companies for orchestrating a fraudulent, multi-billion dollar
investment scheme centering on an US$8 billion Certificate of
Deposit program.  Mr. Stanford's companies include SIBL, Stanford
Group Company (SGC), and investment adviser Stanford Capital
Management.  As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin
America on April 8, 2009, Bloomberg News said U.S. District Judge
David Godbey seized all of Mr. Stanford’s corporate and personal
assets and placed them under the control of court-appointed SGC
receiver Ralph Janvey.

STANFORD INT'L BANK: SFG CIO Denies Fraud Allegations
-----------------------------------------------------
Stanford Financial Group Chief Investment Officer Laura
Pendergest-Holt denied every allegation in the civil fraud suit
filed by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC),
Bloomberg News reports, citing a court filing.

“Laura has filed her answer to the SEC’s claims, and she plans to
aggressively fight back,” Jeffrey Tillotson, Ms. Pendergest-Holt's
lawyer, told Bloomberg News in a phone interview.

The SEC, on Feb. 17, charged Stanford International Bank Limited
(SIBL) owner Robert Allen Stanford and three of his companies for
orchestrating a fraudulent, multi-billion dollar investment scheme
centering on an US$8 billion Certificate of Deposit program.  Mr.
Stanford's companies include SIBL, Stanford Group Company (SGC),
and investment adviser Stanford CapitalManagement.  The SEC also
charged SIBL chief financial officer James Davis as well as Ms.
Pendergest-Holt in the enforcement action.

According to Bloomberg News, Ms. Pendergest-Holt has also been
charged with criminal obstruction of the Stanford investigation,
the only criminal charge yet filed in connection with Stanford
Financial Group.  The report relates in denying the SEC’s claims,
Ms. Pendergest-Holt said all her actions were taken in “good faith
reliance” upon the advice of her attorneys.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
April 2, 2009, Reuters said Ms. Pendergest-Holt filed a US$20
million lawsuit against former firm attorney Thomas Sjoblom -- a
partner in the Washington law firm Proskauer Rose LLP –- for
malpractice that led to her arrest.  In a complaint filed with the
Dallas District Court, Reuters related Ms. Pendergest-Holt said
Mr. Sjoblom's actions are the reason she "has been wrongfully
accused of a crime" and is incurring "hundreds of thousands of
dollars in attorney's fees."  According to Reuters, Ms.
Pendergest-Holt accused Mr. Sjoblom, who advised her before her
recorded SEC testimony, of representing the company's interests
rather than her individual interests.  The report noted the
lawsuit said that the night before Mr. Sjoblom met Ms. Pendergest-
Holt to prepare her for her SEC testimony, the lawyer solicited a
multimillion dollar retainer from Mr. Stanford to represent him
personally.  Reuters noted court documents also show that shortly
after Ms. Pendergest-Holt's testimony, Mr. Sjoblom notified the
SEC that his firm no longer represented Stanford.

* BRAZIL: Economists See GDP to Shrink Less Than Forecast
---------------------------------------------------------
Analysts expect Brazil's economy to shrink 0.30% in 2009, from a
previous forecast of a 0.39% contraction a week earlier, as the
economy shows tentative signs of recovery, Andre Soliani of
Bloomberg News reports citing a median estimate in an April 30
central bank survey of about 100 economists.  The report recalls
in the central bank’s April 17 survey, economists forecast a 0.49%
contraction for 2009.

According to the report, the central bank cut interest rates for a
third straight meeting as inflation slows and recession chokes
demand.  The report relates slowing the pace of rate cuts to one
point from 1.5 points at the previous meeting may indicate policy
makers see the prospect of Brazil’s economy improving later this
year.

“We’re starting to see some positive news and economists now
probably expect a recovery in the second half,” Zeina Latif, chief
economist at ING Bank in Sao Paulo, told Bloomberg News in a
telephone interview.  “The lending figures reinforced my call that
the economy will grow 0.5% to 1% in 2009.”

---------------------------------------
Cap Cana S.A. concluded the offer to exchange US$$250 million in
9.625% of 2013 bonds issued in 2006 for two new classes of
notes, , LatinFrance reports.

The  report relates the offer, which had a 95.46% participation
rate, was completed just in time to avoid a May 3 coupon payment,
which would have dragged the resort into default.

According to the report, investors received US$129.3 million in
10% senior secured 2016 notes, and US$125.9 million in 10% 2016
recovery notes with PIK features in exchange for the old notes.
The report relates coupon payments start in October on senior
notes, and the others only pay cash if there are sufficient funds.

LatinFrance notes New York-based Weston International was hired by
Cap Cana as an advisor, and mediated the process.

* ECUADOR: Bond Holders Reject Government's Buyback Offer
---------------------------------------------------------
The Ecuadorian government was notified by the National Association
of Banks regarding the decisions of creditors holding at least 25%
of Ecuador’s 2012 bonds to reject its recently announced buyback
offer, LatinFrance reports, citing Analytica Securities.  The
report relates the creditors also gave notice of acceleration of
payments.

LatinFrance says the government is offering 30% of face value for
the defaulted 2012s and 2030s in a modified Dutch auction set to
close May 15.  It is unclear if 2030 bondholders will also
accelerate payments, the report notes.

Finance Minister Maria Elsa Viteri is scheduled to hold a
conference call with 2012 and 2030 bondholders today, May 5,
according to the report.

On March 16, 2009, the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America,
citing Bloomberg News, reported Ecuador President Rafael Correa
skipped a US$30.6 million payment for the country’s 12% bonds due
in 2012, calling the debt “illegal” and “illegitimate.”  The move
also sent its bonds due 2015 and 2030 into default, the same
report said.

                        *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter - Latin America on
December 17, 2008, Fitch Ratings downgraded Ecuador's long-
term foreign currency Issuer Default Rating (IDR) to 'RD' from
'CCC' following the expiration of the grace period for the coupon
payment on the 2012 global bonds that was due on Nov. 15 and the
government's announcement that it will selectively default on all
global bonds.  The short-term foreign currency rating was
downgraded to 'D' from 'C'.  The country ceiling remains at 'B-'.

JPSCO: OUR Extends Firm's Tariff Public Consultations
-----------------------------------------------------
The Office of Utilities Regulation (OUR) has extended the public
consultations on Jamaica Public Service Company (JPSCO)'s
application for a tariff increase in response to representation
from the business community; which includes Portmore Council, the
St. Catherine Parish Council and the Consumer Advisory Committee
on Utilities, Radio Jamaica News reports.

The report relates OUR said the extension of the consultative
process will still give it time to complete the review in time for
the June 1 implementation of the new tariff.

According to the report, the company asked for a 23% tariff
increase and if approved, customers could see an increase of a low
of 4% and a high of 26% on their electricity bills.

                    JPSCO Files Five-Year Rate
                        Review Application

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
March 17, 2009, as part of the comprehensive review of the non-
fuel portion of electricity rates application filed by JPSCO with
OUR; JPS asked OUR to approve a re-design of the tariff structure
to ensure a minimal change in overall rates for 220,000
residential and very small business customers that consume 100 kWh
or less monthly.

The proposed new tariffs will result in an increase in the total
bill of customers, ranging from 4.3% for a Tier One (100 kWh/month
or less) residential customer to 26.8% for a Tier 4 (more than
2000 kWh/month) business customer, with an overall average
increase of 22.8% for all customer groups.  New approved rates
will be reflected in July bills.

The tariff review will set base rates for the period 2009-2014.
It is being conducted against the backdrop of JPS’ poor financial
results over the 2004-2009 tariff period, during which the company
made a loss in three of the five years.

In its submission, JPSCO has proposed that the OUR lowers the heat
rate target and so pass on to customers the benefits of some of
the efficiency gains the company has made over the past five
years.

Simultaneously the company has also requested a revision of the
system losses performance target and penalty as well as approval
for a raft of punitive measures to curb electricity theft, the
major component of losses.

                          About JPSCO

Headquartered in Kingston, Jamaica -- https://www.jpsco.com --

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
March 9, 2009, Radio Jamaica said JPSCO may shutdown its
operations if the company fails to settle a long-standing dispute
over outstanding payments to employees.  The same report said
employees unions contended the payments are owed for overtime
work and redundancy adjustments from 2001 to 2007, which amounts
to about $600 million.


OLINT CORP: National Commercial Bank Closes Accounts
----------------------------------------------------
National Commercial Bank (NCB) has closed the accounts of the
collapsed investment club OLINT Corporation, Radio Jamaica News
reports.  The report relates the bank’s move is aimed to keep with
a Privy Council ruling in January which overturned last year's
Court of Appeal decision which prevented NCB from closing OLINT's
accounts.

According to the report NCB General Legal Counsel Dave Garcia
confirmed that the funds in the accounts had been turned over to
OLINT but declined to say how much money was involved.

"Yes I am able to confirm that we have closed OLINT's accounts
some weeks ago in accordance with the Privy Council's decision in
January and we issued cheques to OLINT and dispatched those
cheques and we believe they were delivered to OLINT's attorneys,"
the report quoted Mr. Garcia as saying.

* MEXICO: Economy May Have Shrunk 7% in First Quarter
-----------------------------------------------------
Mexico’s economy probably shrank 7% in the first quarter from a
year earlier as exports plunged, Valerie Rota of Bloomberg News
reports, citing Finance Ministry Agustin Carstens.  Mexico's gross
domestic product fell for a second straight quarter “due to the
deterioration of global economic conditions,” according to an e-
mailed statement obtained by the news agency.  The report relates
the official GDP number is due to be released May 20.

According to Bloomberg News, Mexico's economy is heading for its
first annual contraction in eight years as the slump in the U.S.
dents demand for the nation’s exports.  The report relates Mr.
Carstens said the swine flu virus outbreak may cut GDP by an extra
0.3% to 0.5%.

Bloomberg News notes Mexico's exports of manufactured goods fell
23% in the first quarter, while oil exports tumbled 58% and mining
shipments declined 27%.  Oil revenue, the report relates, plunged
18% as prices of crude fell 55%.

* MEXICO: Swine Flue Epidemic Hits Economy, Experts Say
-------------------------------------------------------
Experts in Mexico City said the swine flu epidemic has caused a
new financial crisis to emerge, Big News Network reports.

According to the report, restaurants and businesses are now
closed, with street vendors also losing on regular customers.  In
addition, the report says public gatherings have been banned,
which is also adding to the absence of tourists, and the hotel
industry has dropped and many reservations have been cancelled.

The report says Mexico City's Chamber of Commerce estimates the
city has lost US$58 million per day since the outbreak began.  Big
News relates individual Mexican business operators said their
proceeds have dropped back about 80%.  The report notes tourism
generates about US$14 billion annually for Mexico.

CL FIN'L: Officer Claiming US$5 Million in Termination Benefits
---------------------------------------------------------------
CL Financial Limited former counsel and corporate secretary Gita
Sakal, who resigned from the company on April 21 after 15 years of
sevice, is claiming termination benefits in excess of US$5
million, Oscar Ramjeet of Caribbean Net News reports.

According to the report, sources said the separation was less than
amicable.  Group Executive Chairman Lawrence Duprey, Caribbean Net
News recalls, reportedly asked Ms. Sakal to hand over all of the
company-owned assets in her possession including a black BMW car,
laptop and cellphone.

Sunday Express, Caribbean Net News notes, reported that insiders
say that Ms. Sakal made some waves after demanding that the
company meet its contractual obligations and pay out the US$2
million bonus owned to her for last year.  "I have a contract and
I have always been paid in accordance with the terms of my
contract.  It is not a demand.  It's not like I want something
that I am not entitled to," Ms. Sakal told Sunday Express in an
interview, the report notes.

Caribbean Net News relates that when asked by Sunday Express if
she thought it was morally correct, given the company's dire
financial and billion dollar taxpayer bailout, Ms. Sakal
responded, "Do you think it is morally correct for the government
to have a lien on our hard-earned monies invested in the company?"
Ms. Sakal, Caribbean Net News notes, said the Central Bank has put
a freeze on all of the assets -- deposits, amenities, etc. -- of
senior executives and all family parties related to them.  "So
they have a lien on all our monies and we cannot get it until
section 44 is dissolved.  So you think that is correct?  It's not
like we stole the money - so it’s one against the other."

                      About CL Financial

According to Wikipedia, CL Financial Limited is the largest
privately held conglomerate in Trinidad and Tobago and one of the
largest privately held corporations in the entire Caribbean.
Founded as an insurance company, Colonial Life Insurance Company
(CLICO) by Cyril Duprey, it was expanded into a diversified
company by his nephew, Lawrence Duprey.  CL Financial is now one
of the largest local conglomerates in the region, encompassing
over 65 companies in 32 countries worldwide with total assets
standing at roughly US$100 billion.

                        *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
Feb. 20, 2009, the Trinidad and Tobago Express said Central Bank
Governor Ewart Williams disclosed that an examination of insurance
company CLICO, dissolved finance house CLICO Investment Bank and
other CL Financial companies, showed a deficit between $6 billion
and $8 billion.

Tobago President George Maxwell Richards, The Express related,
signed bailout bills for CL Financial, giving the government the
authority to control the company's unit, Colonial Life Insurance
Company, and giving the central bank extensive powers to treat
with CL Financial's collapse and the consequent systemic crisis.

According to the Trinidad and Tobago Newsday, the government used
$1 billion of taxpayers money to help protect depositors and
policyholders.

T&T Newsday related Governor Williams pleaded with policy holders
not to withdraw money from Clico, amid the unit's increasing
$10 billion debt.

                            ***********

Monday's edition of the TCR-LA delivers a list of indicative
prices for bond issues that reportedly trade well below par.
Prices are obtained by TCR-LA editors from a variety of outside
sources during the prior week we think are reliable.   Those
sources may not, however, be complete or accurate.  The Monday
Bond Pricing table is compiled on the Friday prior to
publication.  Prices reported are not intended to reflect actual
trades.  Prices for actual trades are probably different.  Our
objective is to share information, not make markets in publicly
traded securities.  Nothing in the TCR-LA constitutes an offer
or solicitation to buy or sell any security of any kind.  It is
likely that some entity affiliated with a TCR-LA editor holds
some position in the issuers' public debt and equity securities
about which we report.

Tuesday's edition of the TCR-LA features a list of companies
with insolvent balance sheets obtained by our editors based on
the latest balance sheets publicly available a day prior to
publication.  At first glance, this list may look like the
definitive compilation of stocks that are ideal to sell short.
Don't be fooled.  Assets, for example, reported at historical
cost net of depreciation may understate the true value of a
firm's assets.  A company may establish reserves on its balance
sheet for liabilities that may never materialize.  The prices at
which equity securities trade in public market are determined by
more than a balance sheet solvency test.

A list of Meetings, Conferences and Seminars appears in each
Thursday's edition of the TCR-LA. Submissions about insolvency-
related conferences are encouraged.  Send announcements to
conferences@bankrupt.com
