STANFORD INT'L: Owner 'Screaming' About Bank Run Before Seizure
---------------------------------------------------------------
Antigua Observer reports that Lula Rodriguez, Robert Allen
Stanford's former communications chief, said Mr. Stanford ordered
her to send investors reassuring letters and to rebut news
articles that sparked a run on his bank two days before it was
seized by regulators.

"He was screaming and saying people were taking their money out
of the bank, and the bank was in trouble because of that . . . .
It was like a perfect storm was coming together," Ms. Rodriguez
told jurors in federal court in Houston, according to Antigua
Observer.

The report notes that Ms. Rodriguez said that after Mr.
Stanford's finance chief, compliance officer and general counsel
all refused to sign the drafts, she tracked Stanford down at his
suite at the InterContinental hotel in Miami.

Ms. Rodriguez, who has said she had no knowledge of the alleged
fraud scheme, testified that the company's finance chief, James M
Davis, who has since pleaded guilty to helping Mr. Stanford
defraud investors, was at the hotel in a meeting with Mr.
Stanford, Antigua Observer adds.

                 Operations Run by CFO, Not Owner

Meanwhile, Bloomberg News relates that Joan Stack, former global
human resources manager at Stanford Financial Group, testified
that Mr. Stanford left daily operating decisions to Finance Chief
James M. Davis, who volunteered to "lay himself off" for a
US$650,000 lump-sum payout as regulators were closing in on the
company in February 2009.

"We were in the midst of a crisis, and I told him it would look
strange if we lay off our global CFO," Ms. Stack, testified she
told Mr. Davis, according to Bloomberg.  "He was the person I
felt made the day-to-day decisions," she added, the report
relates.

Mr. Davis replied that he would "stay behind the scenes" and
continue running the firm, Ms. Stack told jurors in federal court
in Houston, Bloomberg notes.  In exchange for appearing to step
aside, Davis asked for an upfront payment of 65 % of his 2009
salary, she said, the report relays.

Davis made this proposal "at a very fast-moving time" when "cash
flow problems" were causing Stanford's firm to cancel 2008 year-
end bonuses and lay off half its employees, Ms. Stack testified,
Bloomberg notes.  "We were trying to get to a point where costs
would be reduced to the point the organization would survive,"
Ms. Stack added, the report discloses.

Bloomberg notes that jurors previously heard Mr. Davis testify
that Mr. Stanford was the mastermind and prime beneficiary of an
alleged US$7 billion investment fraud centered on what the
government claims were bogus certificates of deposit at Antigua-
based Stanford International Bank Ltd.

                About Stanford International Bank

Domiciled in Antigua, Stanford International Bank Limited --
http://www.stanfordinternationalbank.com/-- is a member of
Stanford Private Wealth Management, a global financial services
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.

On Feb. 16, 2009, the United States District Court for the
Northern District of Texas, Dallas Division, signed an order
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).

BES INVESTIMENTO: S&P Lowers Counterparty Credit Rating to 'BB-'
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its long-term global-
scale and Brazilian national-scale issuer credit ratings on BES
Investimento do Brasil (BESI Brasil) to 'BB-' from 'BB' and to
'brA/brA-2' from 'brAA/brA-1' and removed them from CreditWatch
with negative implications, where it placed them on Feb. 1, 2012.

"The outlooks are negative. At the same time, we affirmed the 'B'
short-term global-scale rating on the bank.  We have also lowered
the rating on BESI Brasil's senior unsecured debt to 'BB-' from
'BB' and removed it from CreditWatch," S&P said.

"The downgrade of BESI Brasil followed the February 14 downgrade
of the company's parents, Portugal-based Banco Espirito Santo
S.A. (BES; BB-/Negative/B) and Banco Espirito Santo de
Investimento S.A. (BESI; BB-/Negative/B).  The parents' downgrade
followed, in turn, our Feb. 14, 2012, revision of Banking
Industry Country Risk Assessment on Portugal to group '7' from
group '5' and the Jan. 13, 2012, downgrade of Portugal.  BESI
Brasil's stand-alone credit profile is 'bb', one notch above the
credit ratings on the parents.  According to our criteria for
group ratings, we cannot rate a subsidiary higher than the group
credit profile. Consequently, the downgrade of BESI Brasil's
parent caused an immediate downgrade of the Brazilian bank.
Currently, we do not reflect any notches of group support in our
ratings on the bank," S&P said.


MBIA CORP: S&P Keeps 'B' Corp. Credit Rating; Outlook Negative
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'BBB' underlying
(SPUR) rating on Sociedad Concesionaria Autopista Central S.A.'s
(Autopista Central) senior secured notes. "The outlook is stable.
Today's rating action is part of our regular review," S&P said.

"The 'BBB' senior secured debt rating on Autopista Central's
notes reflects the higher of the SPUR and the rating on bond
insurance provider MBIA Insurance Corp. (B/Negative/--)," S&P
said.

"The stable outlook on the SPUR incorporates our expectation that
Autopista Central will maintain a good financial performance, in
line with what we have observed in the past five years. Autopista
Central's back-loaded amortization structure limits the potential
for higher ratings," S&P said.


SUPERVIELLE CREDITOS: Moody's Gives 'Ba1' Rating to Class A Notes
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Latin America has assigned ratings to the debt securities
and certificates of Fideicomiso Financiero Supervielle Creditos
57.  This transaction will be issue by Deutsche Bank (Argentina)
S.A., acting solely in its capacity as Issuer and Trustee.

Moody's notes that the securities contemplated by this
transaction have not yet settled.  If any assumptions or factors
considered by Moody's in assigning the ratings change before
closing, Moody's could change the ratings assigned to the notes.

- ARS25,200,000 in Class A Fixed Rate Debt Securities of
   "Fideicomiso Financiero Supervielle Creditos 57", rated Aaa.ar
   (sf) (Argentine National Scale) and Ba1 (sf) (Global Scale,
   Local Currency)

- ARS45,000,000 in Class B Floating Rate Debt Securities of
   "Fideicomiso Financiero Supervielle Creditos 57", rated Aaa.ar
   (sf) (Argentine National Scale) and Ba1 (sf) (Global Scale,
   Local Currency)

- ARS16,200,000 in Class C Fixed Rate Debt Securities of
   "Fideicomiso Financiero Supervielle Creditos 57", rated Aaa.ar
   (sf) (Argentine National Scale) and Ba3 (sf) (Global Scale,
   Local Currency)

- ARS3,600,000 in Certificates of "Fideicomiso Financiero
   Supervielle Creditos 57", rated Caa2.ar (sf) (Argentine
   National Scale) and Caa3 (sf) (Global Scale, Local Currency)

Ratings Rationale

The rated securities are payable from the cash flow coming from
the assets of the trust, which is an amortizing pool of
approximately 18,791 eligible personal loans denominated in
Argentine pesos, with a fixed interest rate, originated by Banco
Supervielle, in an aggregate amount of ARS90,003,845.36.
These personal loans are granted to pensioners that receive their
monthly pensions from ANSES (Argentina's National Governmental
Agency of Social Security - Administracion Nacional de la
Seguridad Social).  The pool is also constituted by loans granted
to government employees of the Province of San Luis.
Banco Supervielle is the payment agent entity and automatically
deducts the monthly loan installment directly from the employee's
paycheck and pensioner's payment.

Overall credit enhancement is comprised of subordination: 72% for
the Class A Fixed Rate Debt Securities, 22% for the Floating Rate
Securities and 4% for the Class C Fixed Rate Securities.  In
addition the transaction has various reserve funds and excess
spread.

Moody's considered the credit enhancement provided in this
transaction through the initial subordination levels for each
rated class, as well as the historical performance of
Supervielle's portfolio.  In addition, Moody's considered factors
common to consumer loans securitizations such as delinquencies,
prepayments and losses; as well as specific factors related to
the Argentine market, such as the probability of an increase in
losses if there are changes in the macroeconomic scenario in
Argentina.

These factors were incorporated in a cash flow model that takes
into account all the relevant features of the transaction's
assets and liabilities.  Monte Carlo simulations were run, which
determines the expected loss for the rated securities.
Moody's considered factors common to consumer loans
securitizations such as delinquencies, prepayments and losses; as
well as specific factors related to the Argentine market.  These
factors were incorporated in a cash flow model in order to
determine the expected loss for the rated securities.  Finally,
Moody's also evaluated the back-up servicing arrangements in the
transaction.

In assigning the rating to this transaction, Moody's assumed a
triangular distribution for defaults on the main pool centered
around a most likely scenario of 10%, a minimum of 5% and a
maximum of 20%.  Also, Moody's assumed a triangular distribution
for prepayments centered around a most likely scenario of 20%, a
minimum of 15% and a maximum of 35%. These assumptions are
derived from the historical performance to date of the
Supervielle's pools.

The model results showed 0.00% expected loss for Class A Fixed
Rate Debt Securities and Class B Floating Rate Debt Securities,
2.93% expected loss for Class C Fixed Rate Debt Securities and
37.08% for the Certificates.

Moody's ran several stress scenarios, including increases in the
default rate assumptions.  If default rates were increased 6%
from the base case scenario for the pool (i.e., most likely
scenario of 16%, a minimum of 11% and a maximum of 26%), the
ratings of the Classes A and Class B. The ratings for Class C
Fixed Rate debt securities and Certificates would be likely
downgraded to Caa2 (sf) and C (sf) respectively.

Moody's also considered the risk that a disruption in the flow of
payments from ANSES or the Government of San Luis to pensioners
and employees respectively, could severely affect the performance
of the pool.  Moody's believes that the ratings assigned are
consistent with this risk.

Finally, Moody's also evaluated the back-up servicing
arrangements in the transaction.  If Banco Supervielle is removed
as servicer, Deutsche Bank (Argentina) S.A. will be appointed as
the back-up servicer.

* BRAZIL: IDB Approves US$131 Mil. for Electricity Distribution
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Inter-American Development Bank has approved a US$131 million
loan to improve electricity distribution in Brazil's Rio Grande
do Sul State.  The financing will be provided to Companhia
Estadual de Distribuicao de Energia Eletrica (CEEE-D), which
distributes one-third of the energy consumed in the state.

In addition to the IDB loan, CEEE-D will provide US$87 million,
bringing the total investment in a program known as Pro-Energia
RS Distribuicao to US$218 million.

According to data from the Brazilian National System Operator
(ONS), the demand for electricity in the area served by CEEE-D
increased approximately 3.2% annually in the recent years, a
trend that is set to continue.

The project will help Rio Grande do Sul state expand and
modernize its distribution system to meet a demand that is
expected to peak during the 2014 World Cup as Porto Alegre, the
state's capital, is one of the hosting-cities.  The resources
will also be employed by CEEE-D to implement an information
technology (IT) system supporting business management.

To address the region's needs, the Program Pro-Energia RS
Distribuicao involves the construction and expansion of
substations, the upgrade of equipment used in these substations,
the construction and expansion of sub-transmission lines, and the
renewal of IT management and business systems.

"Electricity demand has been increasing due to the region's
economic growth, which is expected to peak during the 2014 World
Cup, and investments in the electricity distribution system are
critical to provide reliable and quality services," said Sylvia
Larrea, IDB's project team-leader.

The loan has a 24-year term with a four-year grace period.  The
interest rate is variable and based on LIBOR.

LIME JAMAICA: Parent Gives Jamaica Government 3-Mo Deadline
-----------------------------------------------------------
Camilo Thames at Jamaica Observer reports LIME (formerly Cable &
Wireless Jamaica Limited)'s parent company Cable & Wireless gave
the Jamaica Government three months to sort out the regulatory
environment before it has to "make a decision" on its future
here.

Jamaica Telecommunications Minister Phillip Paulwell said he
believes he will be able to drastically change the rules, which
LIME believes put it at a disadvantage, within that time frame,
according to Jamaica Observer.

The report notes that LIME could see its capital base wiped out
in another six months if nothing changes.

Lachlan Johnston, director of brand & communications at Cable &
Wireless Communication, told the Business Observer that the
company was "working to assess the level of write-down ahead of
our full-year results, but at this stage we cannot give any
figures."  The write-down would purely be an accounting charge to
CWC's financial statements, as part of a requirement under
international accounting rules. . . . As we have said before, the
conditions in Jamaica are very difficult.  We are competing
against a company which has an unfair advantage in terms of
regulation. . . . Our short, medium and long-term prospects are
dependent on there being a change to the regulations, which the
Jamaican Government is now considering," Mr. Johnson added, the
report relates.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Feb. 6, 2012,
the Board of Directors of LIME released the unaudited
consolidated results of the company, Jamaica Digiport
International Limited (101), and other subsidiaries, for the
quarter ended Sept. 30, 2009.  The report related that revenue
for the quarter declined 10% to JM$5,104 million from JMS5,567
million for the same period in 2008.  The company have grown
internet and data revenues and maintained market share on mobile
while growing demand for business products, however the poor
economic environment exerted downward pressure on fixed and
mobile voice minutes of use with a resulting decline in revenue.
Jamaica Gleaner disclosed that the results led its UK parent C&W
Communications in its regional assessment issued to describe
Jamaica as a "difficult market", and signaled that the local
operation would take a non-cash hit for its full year ending
March.  Jamaica Gleaner noted that LIME's accumulated deficit has
climbed to more than JM$17 billion.  Concurrently, its equity
base has diminished to JM$2 billion on its December 2011
unaudited balance sheet, reflecting book value of two cents per
share, the report added.

The report notes that hundreds of workers accompanied OWTU
President General Ancel Roget as he delivered the strike notice
to Petrotrin President Kenneth Allum at the company's
administrative offices in Pointe-a-Pierre.

If the strike proceeds as planned all of Petrotrin's exploration
and production, refinery and marine operations will be shut down,
possibly affecting fuel supplies locally and abroad, RJR News
notes.

The report discloses that the Government reportedly finalized
plans to use members of the Trinidad & Tobago Defence Force to
drive fuel-distribution wagons, as well as to continue
importation of fuel from abroad.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
Feb. 13, 2012, Trinidad Express said that salary negotiations
between Petrotrin and the Oilfields Workers' Trade Union broke
down at the Labor Ministry in San Fernando and it was now up to
Labor Minister Errol McLeod to intervene and prevent a shutdown
of Petrotrin.  The report related that Mr. Roget said that the 5%
increase offered by the government would not be accepted.
Trinidad Express noted that Mr. Roget said the union informed
that it would continue talks only if Petrotrin is willing to move
beyond its 5% offer.

                        About Petrotrin

Petroleum Company of Trinidad and Tobago is the major state-owned
oil company in Trinidad and Tobago.  The company was established
in 1993 by the merger of Trintopec and Trintoc, two state-owned
oil companies.  Petrotrin's main holdings are extensive, mature
onshore fields located across southern Trinidad.  Large areas
have been leased out to small private producers who are able to
make a profit on wells that are unprofitable for Petrotrin,
giving it higher labor costs.  The company operates a refinery at
Pointe- Pierre, just north of San Fernando in south Trinidad.
Most crude petroleum produced in Trinidad is exported without
being refined. The refinery depends on imported crude (mostly
from Venezuela), which is either used domestically or exported.

                          *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
June 9, 2010, Trinidad Express said that four members of
Petrotrin submitted their resignation letters.  According to the
report, Malcom Jones resigned as chairman of Petrotrin and from
the State boards.  The report related board members Lawford
Dupres, who chaired the National Petroleum board, attorney Kerwin
Garcia and Andrew McIntosh had also resigned.  Prime Minister
Kamla Persad-Bissessar, the report noted, said that Cabinet had
ordered a forensic audit of Petrotrin as there were "grounds for
suspicion of misconduct" at Petrotrin similar to what may have
transpired at special-purpose State enterprise UDeCOTT.  The
report said that the company was experiencing serious financial
difficulties resulting in high cost overruns of its refinery
upgrade.   The situation was exacerbated by a US$12 billion
lawsuit by World GTL Inc. against Petrotrin, the report added.

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
