LIAT LIMITED: Court Grants Order to Prevent Pilot Strike
--------------------------------------------------------
The Industrial Court in Antigua and Barbuda granted LIAT Limited's
request to prevent Rudolph Lowe, Henry Drakes, Eulton Henry, and
the sundry pilots representing Leeward Islands Airlines Pilots
Association from taking industrial action or continuing any
further industrial action whether by strike, go slow, sick out, or
any other related action against the airline, Oscar Ramjeet of
Caribbean Net News reports.

According to the report, the Order also stated, "The
Respondent/Employees (the pilots) be and are hereby granted
liberty to apply upon the filing of any application and in this
regard the Applicant shall be given 14 days notice of such
application."

The Order, the report says, was signed by Philip A. Pilgrim
(President), Samuel A. Aymer and Glendina M. McKay - the members
of the Industrial Court.

                            About LIAT

Headquartered in Antigua and Barbuda, LIAT Limited--
http://www.liatairline.com -- is a passenger airline with a fleet
of Dash 8 turboprop aircraft.  The carrier transports passengers
to more than 20 destinations in the Caribbean.  The company has
expanded by buying key operating assets of former rival Caribbean
Star, including additional Dash 8s.  Before the acquisition was
completed in November 2007, LIAT and Caribbean Star had formed a
commercial alliance that integrated many of their operations.
Among LIAT's major shareholders are the governments of several
Caribbean nations, including Antigua, Barbados, the Grenadines,
and St. Vincent.

                         *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
January 30, 2009, Caribbean360.com News said Regional airline LIAT
is cutting routes as the world economic turbulence takes a toll on
their operations.  According to the report, the airline said the
current world economic crisis was impacting on travel patterns in
the Caribbean and the carrier would have to reduce the number of
daily flights in and out of Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Guyana,
and St Kitts and Nevis.


STANFORD INT'L BANK: Owner Asks Records From U.S. Receiver
----------------------------------------------------------
Stanford International Bank Limited (SIBL) owner Robert Allen
Stanford, through his attorneys, asked U.S. District Judge David
Godbey in Dallas to require court-appointed receiver, Ralph
Janvey, to provide at least the same records given government
regulators and prosecutors probing fraud allegations at Stanford
Group Co. and SIBL, Bloomberg News reports.  The report relates
Mr. Stanford asked for these records so that he can defend himself
against allegations of his involvement in a Ponzi scheme.

“In any equitable system, Allen Stanford would have at least equal
access to his own documents,” Jacks C. Nickens, Mr. Stanford’s
civil attorney, said in a court filing obtained by the news
agency.  “It is inequitable for the receiver to spend millions of
dollars of Stanford’s money dismantling Stanford’s business while
refusing to spend a dime of Mr. Stanford’s money to allow Mr.
Stanford access to the documents he needs to defend himself.”

According to the report, Mr. Nickens said Mr. Janvey’s request
that Mr. Godbey allow at least 60 days to turn over copies of the
same documents to Mr. Stanford is an attempt to “stonewall” and
“substantially impair” his defense.

                  About Stanford International

Stanford Private Wealth Management, a global financial services
network with US$51 billion in deposits and assets under management

than 70,000 clients in 140 countries.

                          *     *     *

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, 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, SGC, and investment adviser Stanford
Capital Management.  According to a TCR-LA  April 8 report, citing
Bloomberg News, Judge Godbey seized all of Mr. Stanford’s
corporate and personal assets and placed them under the control of
court-appointed SGC receiver Mr. Janvey.


STANFORD INT'L BANK: Examiner Calls for Release of Funds
--------------------------------------------------------
Court-appointed Stanford International Bank Limited (SIBL)
Examiner John Little called for the release of more accounts
suspected of holding funds related to an US$8.5 billion fraud,
Anna Driver of Reuters reports.  "The law simply does not support
a continuing freeze of customer accounts that belong to third
parties who have done nothing wrong," Mr. Little said in his first
status report filed in federal court in Dallas, the report

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, on Feb. 17, charged
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 Co (SGC), and investment
adviser Stanford Capital Management.  According to a TCR-LA
report on April 8, citing Bloomberg News, Judge Godbey seized all
of Mr. Stanford’s corporate and personal assets and placed them
under the control of court-appointed SGC receiver Ralph Janvey.

According to Reuters, Mr. Little said so far, Mr. Janvey, with
court approval, released 92% of Stanford customer brokerage
accounts that were held at Pershing and JPMorgan and contained
US$4.6 billion in assets.  However, the report relates more than
1,000 accounts are still frozen, leaving some customers with no
funds to pay for necessities like medical bills.

Reuters recalls on May 24, U.S. District Judge Godbey granted Mr.
Janvey's motion to release accounts that received only "de
minimis" proceeds from SIBL.  The report says Mr. Janvey and his
lawyers argued in prior court papers that that would speed up the
process.

Meanwhile, in Mr. Little's report by the news agency, he said Mr.
Janvey has no right to pursue "claw back" claims from customers
who redeemed funds from certain accounts in the year before his
appointment on February 17.  "The threat of such claims is adding
significantly to the hardships already being imposed upon Stanford
customers who have lost their CD investments and seen their other
assets frozen for over three months," Mr. Little said in his
report.

Reuters recalls Mr. Janvey said in previous court filings that he
would consider filing claims to "claw back" proceeds received from
the redemption or interest payments from CDs issued by the firm's
offshore bank.

ASOCIACION MEDICA: Trustee Verifying Proofs of Claim Until June 26
------------------------------------------------------------------
The court-appointed trustee for Asociacion Medica Lomas de Zamora
S.A.'s bankruptcy proceedings will be verifying creditors' proofs
of claim until June 26, 2009.

The trustee will present the validated claims in court as
individual reports on September 4, 2009.  The National Commercial
Court of First Instance in Buenos Aires will determine if the
verified claims are admissible, taking into account the trustee's
opinion, and the objections and challenges that will be raised by
the company and its creditors.

Inadmissible claims may be subject to appeal in a separate
proceeding known as an appeal for reversal.

A general report that contains an audit of the company's
accounting and banking records will be submitted in court on
October 16, 2009.


AUTOPISTAS DEL: S&P Corrects Rating; Junks Rating From 'B-'
-----------------------------------------------------------
In the article published May 21, 2009, S&P misstated the rating
downgrade in the headline.  S&P lowered the rating to 'CC' from
'B-'.

On May 21, 2009, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its
corporate credit rating on Ausol to 'CC' from 'B-' following a
cash tender offer that S&P considers distressed under S&P's
criteria.  The outlook is negative.  At the same time, S&P lowered
the senior unsecured rating on Ausol's $155 million 11.5% notes
due 2017 to 'CC' from 'B-'.  The downgrade is based on the
company's recent announcement of a cash tender offer to buy back
the maximum it can purchase for $5 million of its outstanding
$155 million notes at a price that would range between $230 and
$280 per $ 1,000 of principal nominal amount.

The downgrade is based on the offer Ausol has made to retire debt
for less than originally contracted, which S&P consider a de facto
partial restructuring.  According to S&P's criteria, S&P would
view the proposed transaction as a distressed offer being
tantamount to a default because: (1) the tender offer represents a
substantial discount to the par amount (or face value), and thus
investors will receive less value than the original obligation;
and (2) other signals that the offer is distressed, including: (a)
the structure of the transaction, being conducted via a public
tender offer; (b) the significant default risk over the short
term, indicated by the previous 'B-' issuer credit rating and weak
trading prices of the company's debt securities.  Upon
consummation of the transaction, S&P would lower its issuer credit
rating to 'SD' (for selective default), and the ratings on
affected notes to 'D'.  Immediately after, S&P will reassess the
company's credit quality and assign new ratings.

Ausol holds the concession to operate and collect tolls until 2020
on the Autopistas del Sol Highway System, one of the most
important access roads to the city of Buenos Aires.  It includes
95 kilometers of Acceso Norte Highway and 24 km of General Paz
Avenue.  The toll road provides an important link to the suburbs
on the northwest side of Buenos Aires' downtown.

Ausol's liquidity is weak.  As of March 31, 2009, the company had
about $14 million in cash and short-term investments, while short-
term debt was about $13 million (including accrued interests).  In
addition, Ausol's financial flexibility is very limited because of
the low cash flow generating ability compared to its debt service
amid high regulatory risk related to the company's contract
concession renegotiation, which is pending a full renegotiation
since 2002.

Although the company has been granted with a sizable toll tariff
increase in early 2009, the continued devaluation of the Argentine
peso (and its impact in the currency mismatch between revenues
denominated in pesos and a dollar-denominated debt), decreasing
traffic levels (about 5% down in the first quarter of 2009), and
certain continued cost pressures (particularly labor) hurt the
company's profitability and cash generation ability.

Assuming flat traffic levels for 2009, Ausol should be able to
generate around ARP140 million in EBITDA (or about $38 million at
an exchange rate of ARP3.7 per $1) while it will face interest
payments for about $20 to $25 million annually.  S&P does not
expect the company to generate significant free cash flow.  Ausol
would rely on other sources--like further tariff increases that at
this point are unpredictable--while it will face an increasing
debt maturity profile, with principal maturities of $6.7 million
in 2009 and about $20 million in 2010.

The outlook is negative.  S&P expects to lower the issuer credit
rating to 'SD' and the rating on $155 million notes to 'D' upon
completion of the tender offer.  S&P would then reassess Ausol's
issuer credit rating based on, among other things, the company's
traffic performance and the exchange rate evolution.  It is S&P's
preliminary expectation that, in the event the tender succeeds,
S&P would raise the issuer credit rating to 'CCC+' following the
completion of the offers.

FIDEICOMISO FINANCIERO: Moody's Assigns 'Ba2' Global Scale Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Latin America (Moody's) has assigned a rating of Aaa.ar
(Argentine National Scale) and of Ba2 (Global Scale, Local
Currency) to the Class A Fixed Rate Debt Securities of Fideicomiso
Financiero Banco de Cordoba -- Clase 03 issued by Deutsche Bank
S.A. acting solely in its capacity as issuer and trustee.

Moody's also assigned a rating of Aa1.ar (Argentine National
Scale) and of Ba3 (Global Scale, Local Currency) to the Class B
Floating Rate Debt Securities.  The certificates were rated Ca.ar
(Argentine National Scale) and Ca (Global Scale, Local Currency)

All Debt Securities and the Certificates were issued by Deutsche
Bank S.A. acting solely in its capacity as issuer and trustee.
This issuance is not an obligation of Deutsche Bank S.A. and
therefore the rating assigned does not reflect the credit quality
of Deutsche Bank S.A.

The assigned ratings are based on these factors:

  -- The credit quality of the securitized personal loans;

  -- Initial credit enhancement of 50% for the Class A, and of 15%
     for the Class B, provided through subordination;

  -- The available excess spread in the transaction;

  -- The sound origination and servicing standards of Banco de la
     Provincia de Cordoba S.A.;

  -- The ability of Deutsche Bank S.A. to act as trustee in this
     transaction;

  -- The legal structure of the transaction.

                       The Securitized Pool

The rated securities are payable from the cash flow coming from
the assets of the trust, which is an amortizing pool of about
10,232 eligible loans denominated in Argentine pesos, bearing
fixed interest rates, originated by Banco de la Provincia de
Cordoba S.A., in an aggregate amount of Ar$ 33,325,086.

At closing, about 60.02% of the pool was constituted by personal
loans granted to employees of the Government of the Province of
Cordoba, and 5.40% to pensioners and retirees of the Province of
Cordoba.  Both have the benefit of automatic deduction of the
installment directly from the borrower's paycheck.  The remaining
34.58% were loans granted only with automatic deduction from the
borrower's account.

                            Structure

Deutsche Bank S.A. (Argentina) S.A. (issuer and trustee) issued
two classes of Debt Securities (Class A and Class B) and one class
of certificates, all denominated in Argentine pesos.

The Class A will bear a fixed interest rate of 18%.  The Class B
Debt Securities will bear a BADLAR interest rate plus 500 basis
points.  The Class B Debt Securities' interest rate has a ceiling
of 27% p.a. and a floor of 18%.

Overall credit enhancement is comprised of a total of 50%
subordination for Class A Debt Securities and 15% for Class B Debt
Securities; various reserve funds; and excess spread.

The Class A Debt Securities are expected to be paid off in 8
months.  The payment of principal and interest on Class B Debt
Securities is subordinated to the full repayment of Class A.  The
Certificates are entitled to receive any remaining cash flow after
Fixed Rate and Floating Rate Debt Securities are paid in full.

                     Originator And Servicer

Banco de la Provincia de Cordoba is the originator and servicer in
this transaction.

Banco de Cordoba is a financial institution created in 1873, and
it is one of the oldest financial institutions in Argentina.  The
bank is located in the Province of Cordoba, Argentina and it is
the financial agent for Cordoba's Government.  The bank is owned
by the Province of Cordoba (99% of the shares) and by Corporacion
Inmobiliaria Cordoba (1% of the shares).  Banco de Cordoba was
incorporated on May 14, 2004, as a part of the government plan to
improve the bank's administration.

Banco de Cordoba has a broad coverage within the Province of
Cordoba with more than 140 branches.  They also have branches in
the City of Buenos Aires and Rosario.

ALPART: Prime Minister Warns Closure May be Permanent
-----------------------------------------------------
Jamaica Prime Minister Bruce Golding said Alumina Partners of
Jamaica (Alpart)'s temporary closure may become permanent because
of its owner’s unstable financial status, the Associated Press
reports.  The report relates Mr. Golding said the government
cannot afford another economic stimulus plan to help revive the
industry.

According to the report, United Company RUSAL is suspending
operations at Alumina Partners of Jamaica because of a 60 percent
drop in demand amid the global economic crisis.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
Mar. 20, 2009, Radio Jamaica News said Alpart will suspend its
operations for one year by May 15, sending home 900 permanent
employees in the process; amid a 60% decline in alumina product
prices since July 2008.  Alpart Managing Director Alberto Fabrini,
as cited by Radio Jamaica News, said the temporary shutdown will
allow the plant to prepare for future developments.  Although the
company took steps to maintain the operations even at reduced
capacity, circumstances still left the company with no other
choice but to shutdown, he added.  Mr. Fabrini, Radio Jamaica
noted, said the company will continue to meet its obligations to
employees and the surrounding communities in a timely manner.

Mr. Golding, as cited by Associated Press, said he will speak with
officials at Norway–based Hydro, a minority shareholder of Alpart,
next month.

PETROPERU: To Close More Operations as Protests Spread
------------------------------------------------------
Petroleos del Peru, S.A. (PETROPERU) may halt more operations as
as land-rights demonstrations spread, Alex Emery of Bloomberg News
reports.  The report recalls the company shut a 40,000 barrel-a-
day crude oil pipeline after indigenous protesters seized
facilities in a bid to overturn laws that aim to modify land
rights.

According to the report, protests have affected Petroperu’s sales
plants in the northern jungle towns of Yurimaguas and Tarapoto,
and may force the closure of the 10,000 barrel-a-day Iquitos
refinery.

The government, the report relates, on May 9 declared a state of
emergency in four regions, granting the army greater powers to
clamp down on the protests and charged indigenous leaders with
insurgency.  Bloomberg News notes Cabinet Chief Yehude Simon said
the government plans talks with indigenous representatives this
week.

derivatives.  It was created on July 24, 1969, during the
presidency of Juan Velasco Alvarado, using properties expropriated
by Peru from local oil companies and the International Petroleum
Company, a subsidiary of Esso Corporation.

US$630 million, with the remainder to be paid in two installments

                            ***********

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
