STANFORD INT'L: Shredded Florida Papers “Reassembled” for Evidence
------------------------------------------------------------------
U.S. Magistrate Judge Barry Seltzer of Fort Lauderdale, Florida,
said federal prosecutors told him that within the next two months
they will have “re-assembled the contents of three bags of
shredded documents,” which were seized from Robert Allen
Stanford's South Florida offices, Laurel Brubaker Calkins at
Bloomberg News reports.

According to the report, the shredded evidence will initially be
used against Bruce Perraud, a former Stanford Financial Group
security specialist who is charged with destroying documents after
an investigation began.  The report relates prosecutors added that
they also intend to use six seized computer hard drives as
evidence against Mr. Perraud.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
July 10, 2009, Bloomberg News said Mr. Perraud pleaded not guilty
to destroying documents sought by U.S. Officials.  Mr. Perraud,
indicted by a federal grand jury in Florida, entered his plea in a
Fort Lauderdale federal court before U.S. Magistrate Judge Lurana
Snow.  The report noted Mr. Perraud –- a former global security
specialist at Stanford's Fort Lauderdale office -- allegedly had a
document-shredding company destroy a 95-gallon bin full of papers
on Feb. 25, just days after the judge presiding over the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission case had issued an order
forbidding the alteration, removal or destruction of Stanford
Financial records.

Judge Seltzer, the report notes, said Mr. Perraud’s trial date is
set for Aug. 24, but will probably change to accommodate his
lawyer’s vacation plans.

The case is U.S. v. Perraud, 09cr60129, Southern District of
Florida (Fort Lauderdale).

                   About Stanford International

Domiciled in Antigua, Stanford International Bank Limited --
http://www.stanfordinternationalbank.com/-- is a member of

network with US$51 billion in deposits and assets under management
or advisement.  Stanford Private Wealth Management serves more
than 70,000 clients in 140 countries.

appointing Ralph Janvey as receiver for all the assets and records
of Stanford International Bank, Ltd., Stanford Group Company,
Stanford Capital Management, LLC, Robert Allen Stanford, James M.
Davis and Laura Pendergest-Holt and of all entities they own or
control.  The February 16 order, as amended March 12, 2009,
directs the Receiver to, among other things, take control and
possession of and to operate the Receivership Estate, and to
perform all acts necessary to conserve, hold, manage and preserve
the value of the Receivership Estate.

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, on Feb. 17, charged
before the U.S. District Court in Dallas, Texas, 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.

A criminal case was pursued against him in June before the U.S.
District Court in Houston, Texas.  Mr. Stanford pleaded not guilty
to 21 charges of multi-billion dollar fraud, money-laundering and
obstruction of justice.  Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer,
as cited by Agence France-Presse News, said in a 57-page
indictment that Mr. Stanford could face up to 250 years in prison
if convicted on all charges.  Mr. Stanford surrendered to U.S.
authorities after a warrant was issued for his arrest on the
criminal charges.

The criminal case is U.S. v. Stanford, H-09-342, U.S. District
Court, Southern District of Texas (Houston). The civil case is SEC
v. Stanford International Bank, 3:09-cv-00298-N, U.S. District
Court, Northern District of Texas (Dallas).

* ARGENTINA: Provinces to Sell Debt as Deficits Triple
------------------------------------------------------
Argentine provinces, whose swelling debt contributed to the
government’s 2001 default, are poised to step up bond sales again
as budget deficits almost triple, Drew Benson at Bloomberg News
reports.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
July 21, 2009, Bloomberg News said Argentina’s Cordoba province
plans to sell US$150 million worth of dollar-linked bonds in the
local market early next month.  Unnamed sources told Bloomberg
that the 12% bonds due in 2017 will be denominated in pesos and
payments will be made in pesos based on the current exchange rate.
Banco de la Provincia de Cordoba is arranging the sale, the source
added.

“The provinces are going to have financing needs this year, so
they are watching to see what happens with Cordoba,” Patricio
Esnaola, a Buenos Aires-based analyst who rates local governments
for Moody’s Investors Service, told Bloomberg News in a telephone
interview.  “If Cordoba has good results, this could be a trigger
for the rest to do the same,” Mr. Esnaola added.

According to Bloomberg News, citing a data from Buenos Aires-based
research firm Economia & Regiones, the total deficit of
Argentina’s 23 provinces and the city of Buenos Aires may jump to
9.8 billion pesos (US$2.6 billion) this year from 3.4 billion
pesos in 2008.  The report related the research firm's data show
that all but five of the provinces will have a budget gap this
year.

Economia & Regiones, the report notes, said provinces spent 20.6%
of their revenue servicing debt in 2001, compared with an
estimated 7.7% this year.

                        *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter - Latin America on
December 23, 2008, Fitch Ratings downgraded the Republic of
Argentina's long-term local currency issuer default rating to
'B-'; country ceiling to 'B'; and performing bonds in foreign and
local currency governed by Argentine law to 'B-/RR4'.  The rating
outlook on the local currency IDR is Stable.

In addition, Fitch affirmed the country's long-term foreign
currency IDR remains in Restricted Default ('RD'); short-term IDR
at 'B'; performing bonds in foreign currency governed by foreign
law at 'B-/RR4'; defaulted senior unsecured notes at 'CC/RR4'; and
defaulted collateralized Brady bonds at 'CCC-/RR3'.

DACOSTA MANNINGS: To Cut 81 Jobs Amid Operations Shutdowns
----------------------------------------------------------
Barbados-based Dacosta Mannings Inc. said it will make 81 jobs
redundant by the end of July due to "rationalisation measures"
being taken to create "a more viable and competitive operation,"
Trinidad Express reports.  The report relates 20 employees applied
for voluntary separation and those applications were accepted.

According to the report, Dacosta Mannings is closing its
Speightstown, St Peter store and Warrens, St Michael auto centre
in Barbados.  The report relates the company's board blamed
"dwindling customer activity" at the Speightstown hardware store
for the decision to close the outlet effective July 31.

The Express points out that heightened costs, the saturated nature
of the lumber market and lower demand in construction and capital
works projects were also listed as factors influencing the
decision to quit the lumber business.  The report relates board
said that in the last two years the Speightstown store and the
lumber yard at Fontabelle, St Michael, "continued to be very
marginal in performance".

The company, the report adds, also announced the closure of the
DMI Auto Centre in Warrens at month-end.

BANCO BRADESCO: Aims to Retake Brazil Bank Leadership
-----------------------------------------------------
Banco Bradesco S.A. Chairman Lazaro Brandao said the bank aims to
once again overtake its local rival Itau Unibanco after losing its
position as Brazil's largest private bank at the end of last year,
Rogerio Jelmayer of Dow Jones Newswires reports, citing local
newspaper Valor Economico.

"We were [the] leader for many decades.  Our effort now is to
boost quality and productivity to reduce the gap (with Itau
Unibanco)," the report quoted Mr. Brandao as saying.  "This is not
a target for the short term, but year-by-year we will reduce this
difference," Mr. Brandao added.

According to the report, the bank lost the lead position after
local rivals Itau and Unibanco announced a merger.

Currently, Dow Jones Newswires notes, Bradesco is Brazil's third-
largest bank, with total assets of BRL426 billion (US$225 billion)
at the end of the first quarter, according to a ranking maintained
by the central bank.

Mr. Brandao, the report says, sees few alternatives for
acquisition in the future.  The report relates Mr. Brandao added
that the focus of the bank remains on the domestic market and
international expansion is not a priority.

* COSTA RICA: Petroleos de Venezuela Halts 2 Oil Shipments
-----------------------------------------------------------
Venezuela state oil company Petroleos de Venezuela is said to have
abruptly cancelled two shipments of crude oil, each of 280,000
barrels of light oil, to a refinery in Costa Rica, Jeremy Morgan
at Latin American Herald Tribune reports.  The report relates the
Costa Rican refinery was obliged to resort to the spot market,
where it said it intended to seek alternative supplies.

According to the report, citing a Caracas-based website,
Petrofinanzas, the shipments were contracted for delivery in
August and September.  The report relates PDVSA wasn't clear with
the reason of its company move.

The report notes that the absence of an explanation from PDVSA --
or, indeed, any public comment about the report prompted
speculation that the decision was perhaps politically motivated.
The report says it was noted, for instance, that Venezuelan
President Hugo Chavez recently lambasted Costa Rican President
Oscar Arias for his role in efforts to resolve the ongoing crisis
in Honduras.

AIR JAMAICA: Union Raises Concerns on Possible Routes Sale
----------------------------------------------------------
The union of Air Jamaica Limited's workers, National Workers
Union, is raising concerns over what it claims are likely plans of
the government to sell some of the state-owned airline's routes,
The Jamaica Gleaner reports.

According to the report, NWU Vice President Granville Valentine
said the matter of a likely sale of the routes arose from a
meeting last week with the airline’s board and members of the
divestment committee.  The report relates Mr. Valentine said he is
now concerned about the likely impact of such a move on workers at
the airline.

The Gleanor notes that Chairman of the Divestment committee,
Dennis Lalor, said as far has he’s aware, there was no discussion
of a likely sale of Air Jamaica routes at a meeting he attended
last week with the airline’s board members.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
June 29, 2009, RadioJamaica News said the Jamaican government
indicated it will name a buyer for cash-strapped Air Jamaica.  The
report related the sale is scheduled to be completed before the
July 31 deadline which was set by the Finance Ministry.  Radio
Jamaica said the airline has been hemorrhaging over US$150 million
per annum and the government has had to foot the massive bill.  In
addition, Radio Jamaica said, Air Jamaica currently has over
US$600 million in loans outstanding.

                          About Air Jamaica

Headquartered in Kingston, Jamaica, Air Jamaica Limited --
http://www.airjamaica.com/-- was founded in 1969.  It flies

Jamaican government owned 25% of the company after it went private
in 1994.  However, in late 2004, the government assumed full
ownership of the airline after an investor group turned over its
75% stake.  The Jamaican government does not plan to own Air
Jamaica permanently.

ALUMINA PARTNERS: UC Rusal to Stay, Reaffirms Commitment
--------------------------------------------------------
Russian alumina conglomerate UC Rusal has reaffirmed its
commitment to continue operating in Jamaica, Jamaica Observer
reports, citing Minister of State in the Ministry of Energy and
Mining Laurence Broderick.  UC Rusal owns 65% of Alumina Partners
of Jamaica.

"They have successfully negotiated debt-rescheduling arrangements
with a consortium of Russian and western banks amounting to
US$11.9 billion, out of a total debt of US$14.5 billion," the
report quoted Mr. Broderick as saying.  "We have been assured that
the company is trying its best to resolve its debt situation, in a
manner that will ensure its long-term future and involve little or
no disposal of existing assets," Mr. Broderick added.

According to the report, Mr. Broderick said that amidst the the
global downturn in the aluminium industry and UC Rusal's financial
difficulties, the company has “unequivocally asserted that they
intend to remain in Jamaica for the long haul."

Mr. Broderick, the report notes, informed that the ministry is
also reviewing options within existing agreements with the
government, to ensure that the interests of Jamaica, the
administration and workers in the sector are secured.  A joint
bauxite task force has been established to closely monitor
critical aspects of the closing-down process within the local
bauxite/alumina sector and the possible impact, Mr. Broderick
added.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
May 19, 2009, RadioJamaica Alpart's mining and refinery
operations officially came to a halt on May 15.  The report
related Alpart said it will send 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, Mr. Fabrini 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.

CASH PLUS: Firm and Affiliates Wound Up
---------------------------------------
Cash plus Limited and six of its affiliates -- Cash Plus Group
Ltd, Cash Plus Industries Ltd, Sovereign Security Services Ltd,
Cash Plus Commodities Ltd, Cash Plus Shipping Ltd and Cash Plus
Development -- were wound up following a petition filed in the
Supreme Court by attorney-at-law Hugh Wildman, the trustee in
bankruptcy, Barbara Gayle of the Jamaica Gleaner reports.  The
report relates Mr. Wildman was appointed liquidator for all the
companies.

Mr. Wildman told the Gleaner in an interview that as liquidator
for the companies, he had greater powers under the Companies Act
to deal with the assets of the entities.  Mr. Wildman added that
he is going to identify the assets and have them sold so that
creditors and depositors will get their entitlements.

The Gleaner notes that Mr. Wildman said that in respect of some of
the properties, there would be court battles as it was being
contended that Cash Plus breached agreements.  The report relates
Mr. Wildman said two of those properties are Mainland
International, a hardware company at March Pen, St Catherine, and
the Hilton Kingston hotel.  Mr. Wildman said that he will try his
best to recover the US$8 million Cash Plus invested in the Hilton
Kingston hotel, the report adds.

                        About Cash Plus

Cash Plus Limited is an investment club in Jamaica.  It
collapsed in 2007 after the Financial Services Commission moved
to regulate its operations.  The company is a financial arm of
the Cash Plus Group of Companies, a business conglomerate
established in 2002 by mortgage banker Carlos Hill.  The company
offers its participants the opportunity to participate in the
group's ventures which include mergers and numerous acquisitions.

In April 2008, the Supreme Court of Jamaica placed Cash Plus in
receivership.  Cash Plus admitted that it wouldn't be able to pay
its lenders until April 14, 2008.  The firm has 40,000 lenders
with loans totaling J$4 billion.  Cash Plus was unable to repay
its investors.  The Financial Services Commission said it was
informed by the attorney acting on behalf of Cash Plus that the
investment club lacked the funds to start the repayment of the
principal and interest owing to its investors.

PricewaterhouseCoopers' accountant Kevin Bandoian was appointed as
joint receiver-manager for Cash Plus.


NATIONAL COMMERCIAL: Has JM$7.3BB Net Profit in 9 Mos. Ended June
-----------------------------------------------------------------
National Commercial Bank Jamaica Limited posted JM$7.3 billion net
profit in nine-months ended June 2009, due to the firm's strategic
approach and the management of the business, The Jamaica Observer
reports, citing NCB Group managing director, Patrick Hylton.  The
report relates the banking segment's results for the nine months
ended June 2009 represent an increase of JM$64 million, a 1%
increase over the June 2008 period.

"The consistent results were mainly achieved by growth in the
Corporate and Retail loan portfolios (38% and 11%, respectively),
which is responsible for a 33% increase in interest income from
loans," the bank said in its financial report obtained by the news
agency.

According to the report, the bank's loans and advances totaled
JM$89 billion (net of provision for credit losses) as at June 30,
2009 growing by JM$17.9 billion over the balances as of the same
perios last year.

The bank's wealth and asset management segment contributed
operating profits of JM$1.5 billion for the nine month period
ended June 2009, the Observer says.  The report relates NCB
Capital Markets Limited, the main contributor to this segment,
provided 85% of the operating profits.  The result for this
segment reflects a 14% reduction from the 2008 period due mainly
to a decline in the results of NCBCM, the report adds.

The Observer says the insurance segment has seen growth in
operating profits, driven by the performance of NCB Insurance
Company Limited.  The report relates NCB Insurance Company Limited
achieved a net profit of JM$1.2 billion, increasing by JM$722
million from the same period last year.

WINDALCO: UC Rusal Assures to Continue Local Operations
-------------------------------------------------------
Russian alumina conglomerate UC Rusal has reaffirmed its
commitment to continue operating in Jamaica, Jamaica Observer
reports, citing  Minister of State in the Ministry of Energy and
Mining Laurence Broderick.  UC Rusal has a joint venture -- West
Indies Alumina Company -- with the Jamaica government.  UC RUSAL
Alumina Jamaica Limited manages the joint venture.

"They have successfully negotiated debt-rescheduling arrangements
with a consortium of Russian and western banks amounting to
US$11.9 billion, out of a total debt of US$14.5 billion," the
report quoted Mr. Broderick as saying.  "We have been assured that
the company is trying its best to resolve its debt situation, in a
manner that will ensure its long-term future and involve little or
no disposal of existing assets," Mr. Broderick added.

According to the report, Mr. Broderick said that amidst the the
global downturn in the aluminium industry and UC Rusal's financial
difficulties, the company has “unequivocally asserted that they
intend to remain in Jamaica for the long haul."

Mr. Broderick, the report notes, informed that the ministry is
also reviewing options within existing agreements with the
government, to ensure that the interests of Jamaica, the
administration and workers in the sector are secured.  A joint
bauxite task force has been established to closely monitor
critical aspects of the closing-down process within the local
bauxite/alumina sector and the possible impact, Mr. Broderick
added.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
April 6, 2009, Reuters said Windalco suspended bauxite mining as
part of a plan to temporarily shutter its operations due to a
world downturn in demand.  "We stopped mining [April 1] and we
don't know how long this will continue," a veteran Windalco
employee, Paul Anderson, told Reuters in an interview.
RadioJamaica related Windalco's management and employees signed
new work arrangements suspending production from March 31.  Radio
Jamaica said in a statement issued by the Manchester-based
company, Windalco said it had concluded discussions with the
National Workers Union and the Union of Technical Administrative
and Supervisory Personnel for the new agreements.  The Jamaica
Observer reported Windalco and its workers agreed to a 40% salary
cut and three-day work-week arrangement aiming to save jobs
instead of widespread layoffs, as the bauxite company closes
production in reaction to depressed global markets.

Alestra, S. de R.L. de C.V. disclosed the commencement of a cash
tender offer for any and all of its outstanding 8% Senior Notes
due 2010 (CUSIP No. 01446PAG9).  The Tender Offer is being made
upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the
Company's Offer to Purchase, dated July 27, 2009 and in the
related Letter of Transmittal.

The Tender Offer will expire at 12:00 midnight, New York City
time, on Friday, August 21, 2009, unless extended or earlier
terminated by the company.  No tenders will be valid if submitted
after 12:00 midnight, New York City time, on the Expiration Date.
Registered holders of the Notes must validly tender, and not
validly withdraw, their Notes prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City
time, on Friday, August 7, 2009 to be eligible to receive the
Total Consideration, subject to the terms and conditions of the
Tender Offer.  Holders who validly tender Notes after 5:00 p.m.,
New York City time, on the Early Participation Date and prior to
12:00 midnight, New York City time, on the Expiration Date will be
eligible to receive the Offer Price and not the Total

Offer.

In addition to the Total Consideration or Offer Price, as
applicable, Holders whose Notes are purchased pursuant to the
Tender Offer will also receive accrued and unpaid interest from
the last interest payment date preceding the Tender Offer to, but

addition to the Total Consideration or Offer Price, as applicable,
Holders whose Notes are purchased will also receive the applicable
Accrued Interest.

For settlement purposes, the Total Consideration and the Offer

of the Notes accepted for tender multiplied by a scaling factor of
0.635, which reflects the principal amortization of the Notes as
of the date hereof.

The Tender Offer is made upon the terms and subject to the
conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase and is subject to
certain conditions, including, among others, a financing condition
that requires that an offering of new notes be consummated and
result in the receipt by the Company of net proceeds on terms and

be sufficient to consummate the Tender Offer.

The Company expressly reserves the right in its sole discretion,
subject to applicable law, at any time or from time to time, to:

the Early Participation Date and Notes tendered after 5:00 p.m.,
New York City time, on the Early Participation Date and prior to

Under such circumstances, previously tendered Notes may be validly
withdrawn until the expiration of ten business days after the date

ARCLIN MEXICO: U.S. and Canadian Affiliates File for Bankruptcy
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Arclin group of companies reached an agreement in principle
with certain key senior lenders on the terms of a financial
restructuring to strengthen the Company's balance sheet and
enhance financial flexibility.

Under terms of the agreement, Arclin's funded indebtedness will be
reduced from US$234 million to US$60 million.  A postpetition
financing facility of US$25 million is also part of the financial
restructuring.

To facilitate its financial restructuring, Arclin on Monday
elected to file for court-supervised restructuring proceedings in
the United States and in Canada.  Arclin's U.S. companies --
Arclin US Holdnigs, Inc.; Marmorandum LLC; Arclin Chemicals
Holding Inc.; Arclin Industries U.S.A., Inc; Arclin Fort Smith
Inc., Arclin U.S.A. Inc.; and Arclin Surfaces Inc. -- have filed
voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the United
States Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Delaware.  Arclin's Canadian companies have made a
filing with the Ontario Superior Court of Justice and have
obtained an Initial Order authorizing Arclin to reorganize under
the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act.

Arclin's subsidiaries in Mexico are not included in the filings.
Moreover, the Mexican affiliates -- Arclin Mexican Holdings S.A.
de C.V., Arclin Mexico S.A. de C.V., and Arclin Operadora S.A. de
C.V. -- are not subject to any insolvency proceedings.

Claudio D'Ambrosio, Arclin's President and Chief Executive
Officer, said, "We are very pleased to have reached an agreement
in principle with certain of our key senior lenders, which we
believe underscores their confidence in our business, and
represents an important step forward for our company.  Although
our operations are strong and our diverse portfolio of businesses
has helped us maintain positive operating EBITDA in 2009,
continued weakness in our core markets has reduced our cash flow
and our ability to comply with certain covenants under our debt
obligations.  Our current capital structure was put in place in
2007, under a different economic climate and at the top of the
last business cycle.  We are now taking appropriate steps to align
our capital structure with the realities of today's markets and
economy.  Having reviewed the options available, we determined
that the court-supervised restructuring proceedings will
accelerate -- and finalize -- our financial restructuring and that
this is the best course of action for Arclin.  This restructuring
process will allow us to continue to support our customers,
suppliers and employees while we work to enhance Arclin's position
as a strong and innovative supplier."

                    US$25 Million DIP Financing

In conjunction with the filings, Arclin has received a commitment
for US$25 million in financing.  Upon approval by the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court and the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, the
new financing, combined with cash generated from the Company's
ongoing operations, will be used to support the business during
the restructuring process.  Arclin intends to continue to meet its
obligations going forward to its customers, suppliers and
employees.

Mr. D'Ambrosio added, "We look forward to working together with
all of our stakeholders to complete a successful financial
restructuring.  Arclin remains committed to providing our
customers with innovative bonding and surfacing solutions for
today's building and construction, engineered materials and
natural resource markets.  We appreciate the ongoing dedication of
all of our employees, whose hard work is critical to our success
and the future of Arclin.  I also would like to thank our
customers, suppliers, lenders and business partners for their
support as we work to position Arclin for continued profitable
growth."

Arclin has established a toll-free Restructuring Information
Hotline for interested parties, at (866) 967-1787 in the U.S. or
at (888) 802-3216 in Canada.

DOE RUN PERU: Not Doing Enough on Rescue Plan, Peru Says
--------------------------------------------------------
Doe Run Peru is not doing enough to avert collapse and present a
viable rescue plan to the government and creditors, Reuters
reports, citing Peru's mining ministry.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
June 4, 2009, Bloomberg News said Doe Run Peru shut all its
smelter operations after failing to reach an agreement with banks
and mining suppliers.  The report related Mining Federation
General Secretary Luis Castillo said the company, a unit of New
York Renco Group Inc., is unable to pay its 3,700 workers and has
no cash for metal supplies for its La Oroya zinc and lead smelter.

According to Reuters, the company said it would present a revised
rescue plan, but has yet to announce one.

A TCRLA report on July 27, 2009, citing LivinginPeru.com, related
that Peru President Alan Garcia said the government “is willing to
be flexible and to extend" Doe Run's deadline to complete the
environmental cleanup, provided the company presents “a financial
guarantee, including shares.”  The report, however, noted that
Jose Mogrovejo, Doe Run Peru's Vice President for Environmental
Affairs, remarked that the company would inject the capital
required to operate again only if the government gave it a
deadline extension of 30 months.

Reuters says that the government has also asked Doe Run's parent
company to inject US$100-million into its Peru unit and put 100
percent of its shares in escrow as a guarantee that it will finish
the environmental clean up program.

                           About Doe Run

Doe Run Peru operates an integrated primary lead operation and a
recycling operation located in Missouri, referred to as Buick
Resource Recycling.  Fabricated Products operates a lead
fabrication operation located in Arizona and a lead oxide
business located in Washington.

As of May 21, 2009, the company continues to carry Moody's bank
financial strength at D- and Fitch Ratings individual rating at D.

------------------------------------------------------
Citgo Petroleum Corp. said the fire in an alkylation unit is under
control. All notifications to government and regulatory agencies
were made and there is no threat to the community.  A Process
Safety Management investigation team has begun its work.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
July 20, 2009, Reuters said Citgo Petroleum's alkylation unit was
shut following a July 19 morning fire at its 163,000 barrel per
day (bpd) Corpus Christi, Texas, refinery.  The report related an
unnamed company spokesman said all other units at the refinery
continue to operate as a fire at the alkylation unit continued to
burn.

Headquartered in Houston, Texas, Citgo Petroleum Corp. --
http://www.citgo.com/-- is owned by PDV America, an indirect,
wholly owned subsidiary of Petroleos de Venezuela S.A., the

  -- Issuer Default Rating at 'BB-';
  -- Senior Secured Credit Facility at 'BBB-';
  -- Secured Term Loan at 'BBB-';
  -- Fixed-Rate Industrial Revenue Bonds at 'BBB-'.


PETROLEOS DE VENEZUELA: Halts 2 Oil Shipments to Costa Rica
-----------------------------------------------------------
Petroleos de Venezuela is said to have abruptly cancelled two
shipments of crude oil, each of 280,000 barrels of light oil, to a
refinery in Costa Rica, Jeremy Morgan at Latin American Herald
Tribune reports.  The report relates the Costa Rican refinery was
obliged to resort to the spot market, where it said it intended to
seek alternative supplies.

According to the report, citing a Caracas-based website,
Petrofinanzas, the shipments were contracted for delivery in
August and September.  The report relates PDVSA wasn't clear with
the reason of its company move.

The report notes that the absence of an explanation from PDVSA --
or, indeed, any public comment about the report prompted
speculation that the decision was perhaps politically motivated.
The report says it was noted, for instance, that Venezuelan
President Hugo Chavez recently lambasted Costa Rican President
Oscar Arias for his role in efforts to resolve the ongoing crisis
in Honduras.
                          About PDVSA

Petroleos de Venezuela -- http://www.pdvsa.com/-- is Venezuela's

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
